The Empress and the Legendary Heroes

Who owns the world?Why should it be Li’s dynasty?

AD 690, Empress Wu usurped Li’s dynasty. She broke all precedents when she founded her own dynasty , Zhou, interrupting the Tang Dynasty. Li Yi, the descendant of Li, fled from the capital. He then studied martial arts, vowing to restore Li’s reign.

During the meeting at Mount Emei, Li Yi tried to get help from the other heroes. Unexpectedly, Wu’s niece came and spoiled the meeting. Li Yi found that the heores all had their own ax to grind. They were uncredible and fragile. And when Li Yi’s childhood friend Shang was recruited to assist Wu, Li Yi left with a broken heart. He then married Sun and wandered around to experience the life of a civilian.

Eight years later. Li Yi was forced to go back. What would happen next?
