Come Springtime, the Ran-Koshi has been transformed into a full military fortress, but all the Emperor has for an army are 50 Senshi and untrained Kikori.
Unbeknownst to them, Evanlyn's party has arrived, and goes out in search of Horace.
They are found by Kikori scouts, and brought out to Ran-Koshi. Horace welcomes his old friends, and tells them of his situation.
The problem reminds Will of the Toscan military demonstration, and he and Selethen begin training men to use the tortoise formation. They form four units of 50 men, heavily trained formations of men armed with large wooden shields, short swords and javelins. Meanwhile, Alyss and Evanlyn embark on a journey across a large mountain lake to find a mythical people called the Hanasu. When they arrive on the other side, they make contact and find that the Hasanu are large mountain people covered in thick, reddish fur and are intensely loyal to their lord.
When hearing about Shigeru's plight, their lord says he would help, but their way is blocked by a forest haunted by a demon that has killed 17 Hasanu, and they will not enter it.
Alyss and Evanlyn go out to kill it, and discover that it is a giant snow tiger. After killing it, they bring it back and their fears dispersed, the Hasanu march for Ran-Koshi.
When spring comes, Arisaka's men come through the mountains and camp at the bottom of a nearby valley. However, they are now much larger due to reinforcements from the south.
Shigeru, Horace, Halt, Will and Selethen know that they are heavily outnumbered, but they prepare for battle to confront Arisaka. They prepare their formations on the plain outside Ran-Koshi, and kill hundreds of Arisaka's infantry.
But just as they are about to engage again, another army arrives, carrying hundreds more to Arisaka's aid under the Lord Yamada, who has been deceived into supporting the rebel lord. As the enemy arrives, the Hasanu arrive as well, with three thousand fierce warriors. Arisaka prepares to fight to the end, but Shigeru stops the battle, and says that he will give up his position as emperor if it will save hundreds of his people dying.
Arisaka's army, awed by Shigeru's display, desert their lord and lay down their weapons. As Arisaka charges the Emperor, blinded with hate, Will hurls a saxe knife at his neck, killing him.
With the battle won, Shigeru returns to his position as Emperor to restabilize Nihon-Ja. Shigeru gives Horace a painting with which to remember him by, and they head back to Araluen. In the end, Horace and Evanlyn become engaged, and Will mentions to Alyss that they should do the same.
