Product description


A thrilling story of violent combat, legend and passion. * Herald * Scenes of exquisite beauty and tension, aided by the mesh of Hearn's meticulous and convincing imagined world. * Literary Review * An indispensable introduction to a remarkable saga. I was spurred into re-reading the whole thing. It was pure pleasure. The setting is beautiful and beautifully described, the story clicks into place perfectly. * Sunday Telegraph * A beautifully realized setting, action and romance played out across a couple of generations, a high-class voyage to the long ago and far away - Lian Hearn has written a saga that will continue to give pleasure to many. -- Ursula K. Le Guin

About the Author

Lian Hearn studied modern languages at Oxford University and worked as a film critic and arts editor in London before settling in Australia. A lifelong interest in Japan led to the study of the Japanese language, many trips to Japan, and culminated in the writing of the Tales of the Otori series. Hearn is also the author of a two-volume prequel series to the Tales of the Otori, The Tale of Shikanoko, consisting of Emperor of the Eight Islands and Lord of the Darkwood.
