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!

    What did you love best about Emperor of the Eight Islands?

    Lovely start to another historical/magical story of Japan. I'm so happy to have a new Lian Hearn series to absorb.

    "Disappointing"

    Very Big fan of L.H. With very superficial characters and hollow story, I can't see myself continuing this novel.
