Brilliance of the Moon

The third title in the compelling 'Tales of the Otori' - the story that began with Across the Nightingale Floor and Grass for his Pillow, Brilliance of the Moon by Lian Hearn is an epic tale of love, power and destiny, set in a mythical world inspired by feudal Japan.

Takeo and the exquisite Kaede, still only teenagers, are now married, but the implacable forces of destiny that rule their lives tear them apart. Takeo, a battle-hardened warrior at the head of an army fighting for his Otori birthright, finds his courage and leadership forged in the fire of bloodshed and sacrifice, while his legendary magical powers are tested to their limits against the invisible assassins of the Tribe. Kaede, determined to reclaim her own lands, is treacherously betrayed and forced into marriage. Their love will survive until death - but death, in this savage, beautiful world, is always only a moment away.

Portrait
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 Tales of the Otori series.
Zitat
"'Lian Hearn is creating an imaginary world every bit as absorbing as Middle Earth and Hogwarts... This is the same mysterious oriental landscape that beguiled Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon audiences' Guardian 'Quite simply the best story of magic, love, sex, revenge and suspense since Philip Pullman.' Independent on Sunday"
