Across the Burning Sands was a novella written by Daniel Lovat Clark which is set in the world of Legend of the Five Rings.

Sinopsis Edit

Shinjo Shono is heir to the Khan of Khans, destined to one day lead the Unicorn Clan. But the young warrior is torn with anguish and doubt, haunted by the memory of facing his former betrothed on the field of battle—and leaving her to die. His duty feels like a chain, and he longs for freedom. He soon learns that longing has a cost.

Shono travels west to negotiate with the caliph of al-Zawira and ensure continuing peace between the Nehiri and Unicorn. A single misstep could mean war, but cultural barriers are the least of Shono's concerns, as he faces duplicity, assassins, betrayal, and even sorcery. Can he find the strength within himself and his allies in this far-off city to secure the Unicorn's future? [1]
