Under Heaven, by Guy Gavriel Kay

Kay has created a sprawling fantasy novel based on the 8th century Tang Dynasty of China. It centers around Shen Tai, second son of a general. Tai has spent the last two years honoring the memory of his late father by burying the bones of the dead from both sides at the battlefield site of one of his father’s last great battles. He receives a gift of unimaginable scope from a princess to thank him for his efforts. This gift of 250 Sardian horses leads him into a web of intrigue which could cost him his life. I listened to the book on cd, and the narrator, Simon Vance, was excellent.
