The story is set in China in 205B.C. The story begins on a battlefield; many bodies lie dead or dying around. Lau is weary but victorious. Xiang Yu, a commander of Lion rank calls Liu to him and presents him with a mission. Xiang Yu is concerned about the loss his rank has suffered and sends Liu to find a wagon-maker in Yantai who is believed to have built a magical chariot that can cross rivers without being seen. Xiang believes it would be perfect for future battles. Lau sets out to find the wagon maker and trick him into building them for the Lion Rank.
This is a fairly short story at 25 pages, yet the story is compact and well written. You are drawn into the era and really feel for the wagon maker when he realizes his beautiful creation is wanted for war. In a short space of time, you get a good understanding of the characters and are eager to find out how it will end. The story is a really good, entertaining short read.
