One man will save his master. The other will kill him. Just when hope burned most brightly in the Empire or Rokugan, a sinister shadow has fallen across the Jade Throne. Emperor Toturi I has been kidnapped, and the villainous Scorpion Clan have been unjustly accused of the crime. With only an inexperienced Imperial Chancellor to restore peace, the Great Clans fall into war among themselves. Old hatreds are awakened, old rivalries restored, and the Empire is consumed by war. When the Emperor is rescued, Rokugan's problems grow even worse, as it seems that Toturi is no longer himself...
