      I NEVER read fantasy but took someone s recommendation and read all three of these books Loved them They take place in Asia and are enchantment than fantasy Suitable for YA readers and folks my age Pure delight

    4. Cameron says:
      I read this trilogy and the prequel as a teenager and was entranced I cannot review the content specifically as it has been too long since I read it, but even after a decade the characters, the setting and the story still resonate with me profoundly I would highly recommend these books to young adults with specific mention to the prequel which is the most excellent of the lot.

    5. Ceridwyn says:
      I found much of the first of the Tales of the Otori series Across the Nightingale Floor completely compelling Hearn sets the action in a supposedly fictionalized version of feudal Japan, however the characters and culture are so firmly placed in the world of ninja and geisha that world building doesn t actually seem necessary or indeed to have taken place It is as if Hearn has set the series in feudal Japan while giving herself an out for making mistakes of course I could just not know enough to [...]

      Amo il Giappone, la lingua ma in particolare la cultura, prima o poi ci andr appena riuscir a risparmiare abbastanza soldi .Per questi motivi, oltre che per la trama interessante, ho deciso di leggere questo tomo.Scritto bene, lo si legge molto velocemente, ambientazioni descritte quel che basta per farsi un idea di dove ci si trovi, ma forse proprio per questo mi ha deluso un poco.Mi aspettavo un libro con descrizioni migliore rispetto al luogo ed agli ambienti in cui vi narrata la storia Una d [...]

      In realt una trilogia, e il primo libro La leggenda di Otori mi piaciuto molto Azione, la crescita del giovane Takeo, la scoperta dei suoi talenti, di chi fosse in realt , l a impetuoso tra lui e Kaede.Purtroppo il secondo libro Il viaggio di Takeo realmente di una noia mortale, con l addestramento di Takeo da una parte e le manovre di Kaede per appropriarsi dei domini che le spettano di diritto.Il terzo libro L ultima luna si risolleva dal grigiume del secondo, ma non mi ha coinvolto al punto d [...]

    9. Cody says:
      This series is one of my favorite It has great action, plot, and characters I have seen some reviews that complain about Hearn s not calling groups by the right name specifically the samurai which she calls the warrior class and the ninja which she calls the tribe, the reason for this I read on her website is that she wanted to rid the stereotype of those groups while reading the books So that is no reason to dislike the books it is actually a good thing But that I did not bother me they were gr [...]

      I remember starting on this series when Across the Nightingale Floor first came out in 2002 My Flat Mate, working in a book store at the time, brought home this slightly damaged copy of Hearn s book Well the rest is history I thought it was a pretty cover picked it up, and did not move from my broken couch we were students at the time till I finished it Much to said Flat Mate s annoyance she was still half way through it.I love this series It is where myth and history blend in together seamlessl [...]

    11. Frankie says:
      I accidentally stumbled upon these books after my sister left them for me when she moved out, at first they appeared long, confusing and a lot like hard work I was very wrong Fantasy, romance, Japan, family, mythology, politics I was in tears when I only had 20 pages left because I never wanted to leave the world Lian Hearn had created My only complaint is the realistic ending, my departure from the beautiful trilogy was quite the depressing reminder of reality.I 100% recommend this to all histo [...]

    12. Janet Leigh says:
      Brilliant book In fact I loved the whole series, number 1 right up to 5 were fabulous page turners I definitely advise that you read this if you, like me, are enthralled by Japanese culture and history AND if you enjoy a large helping of fantasy With warring clans, mystery, magic, loyalty, betrayal and true love what s not to love.

    13. Fatmah says:
      I ve read all of the books and I fell in love This trilogy made me fall in love with reading in the first place, it is so beautifully written and you ll fall in love with each and every character, you ll cry and you ll laugh and you ll be sad and you ll be happy but oh what so wonderful feeling they are I d recommend this book to each and every person if I could Absolutely amazing.

    14. Tor.com Publishing says:
      One of the biggest influences on my current RPG campaign As a white Westerner interested in showing a diverse imaginary world than faux European, I m interested in other people charting similar waters I think Hearn stays clear of appropriation through research respect, personally MK

    15. David says:
      An intriguing blend of various Japanese themes and settings, including early Christianity, NInja skills and lovers playing out their passion across an epic and volatile environment Some dramatic and exciting set pieces.

    16. Emal says:
      Hearn uses his imagination brilliantly to keep any reader constantly in suspense across a range of topics including love, death, magic, growth and so on I read these books eyes ago but remember everything so vividly to this day.

    17. Nur Iman says:
      It s great Full of excitement war, romance and ancient fantasy The ending is a little bit sad though But the story is nicely written, make it a good ending although it is sad haha.It is highly recommended.

    18. Kady Ambrose says:
      Ever since reading the first in this series, Across the Nightengale Floor, I ve been a huge fan of Lian Hearn I am drawn to the world of ancient Japan, and these books are a wonderful way to travel there, while being captivated by the romance, action and intrigue of the fantasy story.

    19. Katy Forrest says:
      This is a beautifully written story with well thought out, relatable characters One of my favourite sagas.

    20. Lil D says:
      The trilogy offers a portal to ancient feudal Japanory is lyrical, enchanting, yet brutal at times.
