Publisher's Summary

A beautiful, haunting evocation of the medieval Japan of Lian Hearn's imagination, this thrilling follow-up to Grass for His Pillow and Across the Nightingale Floor delves deeper into the complex loyalties that bind its characters from birth.... In the third volume of the phenomenal series that began with the best-selling Across the Nightingale Floor and then Grass For His Pillow, the teenage lovers, Takeo and Kaede, are now married.
But their destinies are determined by forces beyond their control. Takeo leads an army into battle, and Kaede, far from his protection, is treacherously betrayed. Their love will survive until death - which, in the savage, beautiful world of the Otori, is only ever a lightning sword stroke away.

Critic Reviews

"Lian Hearn is creating an imaginary world every bit as absorbing as Middle Earth and Hogwarts... This is the same mysterious oriental landscape that beguiled Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon audiences." ( The Guardian)

Stick with book 2 to get to book 3

THIS is the story I was hoping for after book 1, but I had to slog through book 2 to get here. The ending was worth it. Takeo is a dynamic and believable character whose journey you want to continue hearing about.
