Lord Shigeru, heir to the Otori clan, faces hostility from the shrewdly ambitious Iida family in the East and base treachery at home from his own 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 vengeance, Shigeru bides his time, apparently deranged by 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 Iida Sadamu is not the only one who desires his death and his life is under constant threat. But Shigeru has friends among the assassins of the Tribe, friends who will not only protect him, but who 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 begin the "Tales of the Otori" ...

"Heaven's Net is Wide" is the first and last Tale, which 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.
