As said before this is a wuxia and ahistorical fiction novel. In Chinese, Wuxia means martial heroes. Novels in this genre usually center in characters who belong to the lower social classes of ancient Chinese society, being usually quite rebellious and not serving to any lord.

The heroes in wuxia fiction typically do not serve a lord, wield military power, or belong to the aristocratic class. They often originate from the lower social classes of ancient Chinese society. They have a moral code based on the Chinese xia which resembles to the Japanese bushido. As a result, the heros in these stories usually fight for righteousness and aim to remove oppressors.

If you like books about swords, take a look at the Legend of the Seeker books.
