–Nancy M. Sauer, “The Art of Matchmaking”

A diplomatic caravan travels toward Unicorn lands, carrying Doji Shizue with it. Shizue faces a mission of deadly importance—to arrange an alliance between the Crane and Unicorn Clans that will allow both to survive against the Lion’s recent aggression. But not everyone among the Unicorn is open to the possibility of an alliance, and even if they can broker a treaty, what do the Crane have to offer in this tumultuous time?
