Publisher's Summary

Horace is missing. Months have passed since he was sent on a military mission to Nihon-Ja. Evanlyn is worried, and in company with Will, Alyss, and Halt, she sets out to discover what has become of their old friend. They find that Horace has become embroiled in Nihon-Ja politics. The arrogant Senshi Sect has rebelled against the rightful Emperor, who Horace supports.

Now he and Will must turn farm and forest workers into a fighting force that can face the highly trained Senshi warriors, while Alyss and Evanlyn must overcome their longstanding rivalry to seek aid from a mysterious group of mountain dwellers.

Love it

It was great, entertaining and nail biting. William Zappa really knows how to make the characters come alive, and John Flanagan writes very entertaining stories and this one doesn't disappoint. It's too bad that I have to wait a whole month for the next one... I really wish I could read them alk

My favourite of the series.

This episode (?) book, is so full of adventure, variety, clever tactics, friendships, etc, etc, it was hard to put down. In fact I listened twice, one after the other, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
