Middle book syndrome

This volume does not maintain the drama of the first book. This series is on the other hand a bit easier to follow than Otori. However, the frequent hinting of under-age rape and other bedding scenes makes me wonder if this is suitably placed in the YA category. As for pricing, my suggestion would be to re-package this 4 book series into 2 books, or give 2 books for 1 credit.

Lian Hearn

......in a bit more of the fantasy vein than the OTORI TALES, yet still well worth the read. I’m super happy Hearn decided to write this series.
