The Twelve Kingdoms: The Shore in Twilight, the Sky at Daybreak - Fuyumi Ono, Eugene Woodbury

I needed a break from Heart Dance, and this has been sitting in my "currently reading" list for too long.

 

Youko meets the Emperor of Han and his kirin. I'd love to see another translator's interpretation of this bit. Woodbury seems to be going for "The Emperor of Han is a bit of a dandy." He and his kirin have so far managed to shock or fluster nearly everyone they've met in Kei.
