In the 1850s, a Christian cult rattles imperial China to its core. A deified schoolteacher, a general with a deathwish, and an American adventurer-turned-mercenary converge in one of the bloodiest conflicts in human history. The carnage and bloodshed, which resulted in thirty million deaths, shaped modern China and the world.
