The new beginning and the grand finale of Lian Hearn's celebrated Tales of the Otori is "rivetingly elegant" ( Washington Post ). Don't miss the related series, The Tale of Shikanoko.

Heaven's Net Is Wide is the prequel that reveals the full story of Lord Otori Shigeru--the figure who has presided in both life and death over the entire series, the man who represents the true spirit of the Otori Clan. The first and the last tale, it introduces readers to the strange and beautiful world of the Otori and closes the circle where it opened in Across the Nightingale Floor . Set in a mythical, medieval Japan, this epic historical fantasy of revenge and betrayal, honor and loyalty, beauty, passion, and the overwhelming power of love, has enthralled millions of readers the world over--and now, with the cycle complete, its audience will only continue to grow.

A terrific beginning to the 4-book series. Full of intrique, clan rivalries, love and romance, with power struggles and assasination attempts. Honor, and the mysterious almost magical powers of The Tribe. Absolutely loved the whole series. Beautifully written with a nice balance between telling the story and describing the settings and emotions. I would read it aloud to my fiance and she loved it.

I loved this book! There are four more books in this series and I can't wait to read them. Beautiful storytelling. There are a lot of characters to keep track of, but worth the read. I didn't want to put it down!
