I found this book today! It was at Pension Ani in the centre of Vienna, Austria, and it had been left in the lobby next to a yellow pages type of book. It made me so happy I released a book there in turn. But Son of Heaven doesn't look like a book I would want to read, so I will have to figure out who to give it to or where to release it.
It's currently in Geras, a little town in Niederoesterreich (Austria) close to the Czech border.

This is the book's blurb:
"The year is 2065, two decades after the great economic collapse that destroyed civilization. With its power broken and its cities ruined, life in the West continues in scattered communities. In rural Dorset, Jake Reed lives with his 14-year-old son and memories of the great collapse. Back in '43, Jake was a rich, young futures broker, immersed in the datscape of the world's financial markets. He saw what was coming - and who was behind it. Forewarned, he was one of the few to escape the fall.
For 22 years Jake has lived in fear of the future, and finally it is coming - quite literally - across the plain towards him. Chinese airships are in the skies and a strange, glacial structure dominates the horizon. Under the rule of the mighty Tsao Ch'un, a resurgent China is seeking to abolish the past and bring about world peace through rigidly enforced order. But a civil war looms, and Jake will find himself at the heart of the struggle for the future."

Well, this definitely isn't for me ;)

It seems to be the first book of a series called "Chung Kuo" and was first published in 1988, although this copy was published in 2011. It travelled through Hungary with me and is now in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
