Tales of the Otori: Heaven's Net is Wide

£17.99

Product description

The haunting and beautiful prequel to The Otori Trilogy. Lord Shigeru, heir to the Otori clan, faces hostility from the shrewdly ambitious Lida family in the East and base treachery at home from his uncles. His noble education and training as a warrior have prepared him for leadership and combat, but fate and Shigeru's youthful determination bring the Three Countries to war, and he must endure terrible and tragic defeat at the battle of Yaegahara and its brutal consequences. Masking his hunger for vengence, Shigeru bides his time, apparently weakened and deranged with grief and loss, and waits patiently for the moment when he will act to win back the Middle Country and be with the woman he loves, his faithful ally, the Lady Maruyama. The warlord Lida Sadamu is not the only one who desires his death, and his life is under constant threat. But Shigeru has friends amongst the assassins of the Tribe, friends who will protect him and reveal the existence of a boy in a remote mountain village - a boy who is of the secret sect known as the Hidden, a boy who might prove to be 'the unexpected move that opens up the whole game'. So begins the Tale of the Otori... Heaven's Net is Wide is the first and last Tale that both closes the circle and introduces readers to the strange and beautiful world of the Otori. It is an epic historical fantasy of revenge and betrayal, honour and loyalty, beauty and passion and the overwhelming power of love, set in a mythical, medieval Japan, which will enthral readers the world over. 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 a study of the Japanese language, many trips to Japan and culminated in the writing of The Otori Trilogy. Apart from some very minor dogging around the top of the dust jacket this 2007 hardback book is as new. Similar condition copies on AbeBooks start at over £18 plus nearly £9 postage and packaging.
