Synopsis (Goodreads):
General Zou Zheng Duan is a man driven by ambition--the ambition to rule the world. He believes that a China united under his guidance can do just that, defeating even the United States. But first he has to make them fight. To do that, Zou has stolen the greatest magical artifacts in history from beneath the Forbidden City. Chief among these weapons of magical destruction is the Nlai Wan--the Clay Cloud--a bomb capable of turning living matter to hard, brittle clay. Zou believes that releasing the bomb on America will trigger the world war he so desperately needs. Unfortunately for him, the Stone Soldiers already know he's coming...
Thoughts on Terrorcota: Just when you think things can't get worse than they did in the previous a book, a madman pops up with the intention of ruling the world. Oh, and he also turns people to clay. And is NIGH INVINCIBLE! He's still no match for Kenslir and his crew, though.

Well, he's kind of a match. Like, if you tilt your head and squint. I mean, he puts up a good fight. Being NIGH INVINCIBLE does that to a person. They can give it their all-- or just their half, whatever's striking their fancy that day --and not get beat down by the man. Well, wait. I guess if The Man is Kenslir, he does get a beating. There's just a lot of fighting. On both sides. I mean, let's think about this. Where would the fun be if Kenslir just wiped the floor with the bad guys? We'd be bored is where. And nobody likes it when I'm bored. TRUST ME ON THIS.

Wait. What were we talking about again?

So. Sometimes awkward family dynamics. The heartbreak of evisceration. Dangerous magical artifacts. Oh, hey. There's Kenslir and his team right in the middle of everything. KICKING BUTT. And killing things. Because sometimes you have to do some rending and tearing to save the world. AMIRITE?!?!?
