The final volume in the brilliant Tales of the Otori Triology In
the third volume of the phenomenal series that began with the
best-selling ACROSS THE NIGHTINGALE FLOOR and then GRASS FOR HIS
PILLOW, the teenage lovers, Takeo and Kaede, are now married. But
their destinies are determined by forces beyond their control.
Takeo leads an army into battle, and Kaede, far from his
protection, is treacherously betrayed. Their love will survive
until death - which, in the savage, beautiful world of the Otori,
is only ever a lightning sword-stroke away.
