Introduction: War in the North and Travel to the Imperial Capital in Tizen-Jin

As the two armies drew nearer they were seen to be so evenly matched that it seemed doubtful which would win. Tadafuyu gazed anxiously at the banners of the approaching army. “Did we come too late?” he murmured.
One of the archers in the ranks suddenly exclaimed, “There is a man–” and pointed to a figure coming over the hill, holding up some white cloth.
“It’s a messenger!” shouted Tadafuyu, and signaled to his men to stop shooting.
“Who are you?” he called out.
The messenger smiled back and said, “I am Youta, an attendant of the monk Genson.” Then he added in a low voice: “May I be the bearer of a message from His Eminence?”
“What is it?” asked Tadafuyu.
“Only this: I bring a message from the High Priest of Tizen-Jin. He has asked your ambassador to bring his head back to our emperor with the heads of all his men.”

Two Years Ago…The Battle Between Caldia & Tuskania In The North Ended In a Draw

The war in the north ended in a draw. The forced peace treaty gave the caliphate control of Daisen-jin and the fortress Utai-san was ceded to them. Many of Tadafuyu’s men were taken captive as slaves. He returned to Nagato Stronghold and ordered his brother, Musa, to take command of the army now stationed there.
He then traveled to the province of New Caldia and met with Tuskan Prince Muson. Musa informed Tadafuyu that he had no intentions of allowing Caldia soldiers to occupy Nagato Stronghold, and that he planned to have them return home. Tadafuyu agreed. He then sent Musa off on a reconnaissance mission with a large amount of gold as the price for peace.
On the way back, Musa’s carriage was attacked by bandits who had taken advantage of his absence. Musa escaped to the nearest town. The bandits were there as well. Musa managed to drive them off with the help of a young warrior named Yashiro, and then he departed for Kerube.

Talk About A Criminal And His ‘Disenchanting’ Novel!

Tadafuyu and everyone else in the stronghold had been amused, but dismayed, by his novel. Although he had named it “Wicked Yakuza”, and it involved a criminal gang of thugs living in Nagato Stronghold, the novel was really about Tadafuyu’s family history. In the novel the hero was the ancestor of Tadafuyu’s wife, Tadafuyu’s own son and his two brothers. Their story was about how they were fooled by a few cunning men into believing they were actually descendants of the first caliph and therefore could rightfully claim to be rulers of Daisen-jin in their own right!
But because the people in the stronghold wanted to drive them out, they were eventually slain in battle. However, Tadafuyu’s novel also told about how the true legitimate heir of Daisen-jin had secretly escaped with his followers and fled to Ashigara Mountain where they hid away. The descendants of these former rulers of Daisen-jin were still secretly living there and hoping for their chance to take back the territories that once belonged to them.

Caught In These ‘Impressive’ Times..A Tale Of Two Beautiful Countries…Tzu-Lun And Yoru

But Tadafuyu had written other books as well. Those were much more sympathetic, and concerned with the beautiful Matsu Mountains in southern Tzu-lun where his sister, Azami, was born and lived. The two countries were on friendly terms…especially after their recent war with the Hani of Shin-koen (which had ended in a draw). But a new threat arose in the south…a greater threat than the Hani of Shin-koen, who were just an external threat. Tadafuyu’s friend, Musa, was from Nagato Stronghold and had been captured by the Tsingan army when they came down from their mountain stronghold.
The book started slow, but it is a very interesting read. The first 30 pages are more tales of Musa and his friends, while the last two were penned by the author himself, Tadafuyu.
The story is set in this fictional country of Tzu-lun , which has been at war with Shin-koen for a long time. Musa is taken prisoner by the Tsingan army after he and his companions attempt to rescue Musa’s sister from the Shin-koen army. The book is about Musa’s time being a prisoner of war, and how he learns to live with the other prisoners.
The part I read was very interesting. It was an introduction to the characters of this novel, and how they were set up in this story.
I haven’t read many fantasy novels set in this time period. This was a very interesting read.
