Publisher's Summary

As destiny weaves its rich tapestry, a compelling drama plays out against a background of wild forests, elegant castles, hidden temples, and savage battlefields. This is the medieval Japan of Lian Hearn's imagination, where animal spirits clash with warriors and children navigate a landscape as serene as it is deadly.

Tough Getting Into It

we loved the Otari series so eager for more Loan Hearn. I had to listen to most this twice to get into it but now look forward to Book 2!
