A Preview of Rising Sun, Falling Shadows, the upcoming Tannhäuser Novel
The cheering and clapping was louder than ever. The Shogun waited, beaming at the audience. Then, reaching down to the scabbard at his waist, he drew out his sword and raised it overhead. “My sons! The Emperor himself has given his blessing! Go forth secure in the knowledge that your mission, divinely inspired as it is, can have but one result!” The Shogun waved the sword as he chanted into the microphone. “Success! Success! Success!” “Seikouri! Seikouri! Seikouri!” The ranks of soldiers chanted along with him in perfectly synchronized cadence. –Robert Jeschonek, Rising Sun, Falling Shadows
