Shinjo Shono is heir to the Khan of Khans, destined to one day lead the Unicorn Clan. But the young warrior is torn with anguish and doubt, haunted by the memory of facing his former betrothed on the field of battle—and leaving her to die. His duty feels like a chain, and he longs for freedom. He soon learns that longing has a cost.
Shono travels west to negotiate with the caliph of al-Zawira and ensure continuing peace between the Nehiri and Unicorn. A single misstep could mean war, but cultural barriers are the least of Shono’s concerns, as he faces duplicity, assassins, betrayal, and even sorcery. Can he find the strength within himself and his allies in this far-off city to secure the Unicorn’s future?

|Legend of the Five Rings Novella Whispers of Shadow and Steel
Bayushi Yojiro is known as the “only honest Scorpion” in the samurai clan infamous for its liars, schemers, and secrets. As an Emerald Magistrate, his duty is to uphold the Emperor’s laws and ensure justice is done. As a Scorpion, his duty is to loyally serve the interests of his clan—even if that means sacrificing his own honor. As both, Yojiro walks a line as razor-thin as the edge of a katana.
When a dignitary of a rival clan is murdered in the Scorpion-controlled City of Lies, Yojiro is sent to help investigate and bring the killer to justice. His fellow magistrates expect him to prevent Scorpion interference, while his clan expects him to protect its secrets. Where do his loyalties truly lie, and whom will he be forced to betray?
