To be read ...
Final volume of the Otori saga :-)

Book Description (from
(...) Set in an imagined medieval Japan, Book Three is a thrilling-and surprising-follow-up to the previous adventures of Takeo and Kaede. Taking us deeper into the complexities of the loyalties that bind the novel's characters at birth-the fates from which they cannot escape-Brilliance of the Moon goes beyond its transcendent storytelling in demonstrating how we are shaped by forces outside of our control and yet must forge our own destinies all the same.

A thoroughly gripping read, Brilliance of the Moon is also the most powerful novel in the series-a beautiful, haunting evocation of a time and a place just beyond the reach of an outside world.

Not as good as the first two, but still an enjoyable read. This book had its ups and downs for me, the first chapters took me a long time to read because I couldn't be captivated by the story as I had been on volumes I and II ... After Takeo and Kaede get split up again, though, that's when it got interesting for me ;-) I won't go into more details, because I don't want to spoil the plot for anyone, but it was a satisfying end for me. A couple of loose ends are left, which makes me think that there might be a sequel to this trilogy, but let's wait and see :-)

The book is going for a mini-bookring:

1) Fflloorr
2) Elsita
3) Sossap

It's with me now. Thanks for the loan Tho!


I totally agree with Tho. I was geting very disappointed with this last book. The story was very boring until Takeo and Kaede split up. Then the story got really interesting, just like the previous two book. I enjoyed it a lot!
I wonder if Lian Hearn will write another tale of the Otori, as he says at the end of the book...

Thanks Tho for the loan!

I was a little bit disappointed about this one...the first two books of the trilogy were much better, I think...
Anyway, I enjoyed this as much, for I longed to know the end of the Takeo and Kaede's story! I loved it!
