From publisher blurb:
The empire, long divided, must unite; long united, must divide. Thus it has ever been.
—Luo Guanzhong, Romance of the Three Kingdoms
Famine weakens the empire, and war splits it apart. It is an age of ambition and strife, where the hungry dead walk the earth in great numbers, and the Lost must rely on their own kingdoms. Warlords and commoners, ghost-speakers and orphans -- who truly serves the Mandate of Heaven?
