For generations, resentment and hatred have been brewing between the Lion Tribe and the Dog Tribe. The changing fortunes of the tribes have led one to grow into a looming threat at the expense of the other – in a very literal sense. But things are changing in the Kingdom of the Wind, and new people are rising to take leadership from within, while new friends are arriving from afar to bring an extra measure of help to the people who live in the kingdom. It will require an extremely delicate touch to restore peace and unity after so many centuries of enmity. Will the aging King Amai have the wisdom to choose a successor who is both skillful and prudent enough to bring peace and new life to the Kingdom of the Wind?
