Three Oaths

A Legend of the Five Rings Novel

By Josh Reynolds

Legend of the Five Rings’ debonair samurai detective Daidoji Shin returns to solve the fresh mystery of a surprise resurrection

When a long-lost member of the Lion Clan, Itagawa Mosu, seemingly returns from the dead to claim the hand of his betrothed, it’s up to Daidoji Shin to determine the truth of this miraculous reappearance. The Lion reluctantly permit Shin’s involvement, even if they have to let him plan the wedding as part of his investigation…

Shin must navigate dangerous political waters to discover if Mosu really is the man he claims to be, or is he a cleverly disguised imposter? It will take all of Shin’s charm, wit, and flair to find out before the wedding begins. And the guests are already starting to arrive.

Legend of the Five Rings

The realm of Rokugan is a land of samurai, courtiers, and mystics, of dragons and divine beings – a world of heroism, magic, and steel. Through times of peace and war, the samurai of the seven Great Clans have competed for power and influence. But as the trust between them fractures, those struggles turn ever bloodier. Former allies become fierce adversaries, and unlikely pacts are forged between ancient enemies. While conflict and political intrigue divide the clans, the true threat awaits in the darkness of the Shadowlands, beyond the vast Carpenter Wall. There, in the twisted wastelands, an evil corruption endlessly seeks the downfall of the empire. As the Shadowlands threat grows, samurai from the warring clans must put aside their differences and unite if they are to save the very soul of Rokugan.

Interviews and Articles

“This was again a slow and meandering mystery”
Susanna Reads

“A delightful read”
A Dreaming Sky

“Coming back for a fourth Daidoji Shin novel, Josh Reynolds once again knocks it out of the park with Three Oaths.”
Lauren’s Bookshelf

“Josh Reynolds way of writing Shin is honestly a delight.”
What You Tolkien About

“Three Oaths left me wanting to read more in this series and from Josh Reynolds.”
Kathryn’s Book Review

“Complex and fascinating I was once more drawn into the exploits of the exceptional Shin, who just might be being set up to have his wings clipped. Another intriguing read!”

“It goes without saying that a Daidoji Shin story will be a fantastic time for any reader—equal parts drawing room comedy and tense murder mystery.”
Kara Dennison

Praise for Daidoji Shin Mysteries

“Death’s Kiss is another brilliant Rokugan story from Josh Reynolds, a fast-paced, intricately-plotted and highly rewarding journey through the Legend of the Five Rings setting, in the company of a charming, debonair protagonist with hidden depths and a knack for witty dialogue and amusing asides.”

Track of Words, on Death’s Kiss

“It’s a pleasure to follow the exploits of one of my favourite sleuths, Daidoji Shin… I love the voice of Shin – languid, biting, self deprecating – he slays me with his many humorous lines.”
