    Story

    16 years of peace and prosperity have passed since Lord Otori Takeo united the Three Countries. Takeo and his beloved consort, Kaede, have three daughters and a happy family life. Their success has attracted the attention of the distant Emperor and his general, the warlord Saga Hideki, who covet the wealth of the Countries. Meanwhile, the violent acts and betrayals of the past will not lie buried, and other secrets will not stay hidden. Everything that Takeo and Kaede have achieved is threatened.

    Bruce says: "Fourth Book falls short"
    "Still loving the story"
    Overall

    I agree with the other reviewers that the readers are not nearly as good as the ones for the original trilogy. I also agree that Kaede has totally changed and that is a real disappointment. Still, I love the story. It brings history alive and makes me want to learn more about the time period. The male reader will sometimes put you to sleep, however.
