In the mid 9th century CE, the Tang Emperor Wuzong embarked on a systematic persecution of Buddhism throughout the Middle Kingdom. Buddhist leaders, monks, and followers were imprisoned or killed. Buddhist monasteries were pillaged and destroyed. Wuzong died in 846 CE, and his successor Emperor Xuanzong stopped this persecution. Yet the damage had been done.
One travesty of Wuzong's legacy was Yin Monastery. This once-beautiful monastery at a desert oasis was utterly destroyed. Emperor Xuanzong is eager to rebuild a city at the oasis, but a feared and powerful Shaman now dwells there. Can he be bargained with?
