Shurei Hong, destitute but of noble birth, has always dreamed of working as a civil servant in the imperial court of Saiunkoku, but women are barred from holding office. Meanwhile, Emperor Ryuki refuses to take command, leaving everything to his advisors. Shurei is asked to become a consort to the emperor to persuade the ne'er-do-well ruler to govern. Now she must think of a way to stop the emperor from shirking his responsibilities, but Shurei will have to find him first!
