Set in an engaging, alternate Japan, this first book in a new epic trilogy has already become a bestselling sensation in England and Australia, earning comparisons to "Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." In his black-walled fortress at Inuyama, the murderous warlord Iida Sadamu surveys his famous nightingale floor. Constructed with exquisite skill, it sings a the tread of each human foot. No assassin can cross it unheard. Raised in a remove mountain village, Takeo is one of the Hidden, a reclusive and peaceful people who know nothing of war. But the community's tranquil existence is shattered by a brutal and bloody massacre, which Takeo alone survives - rescued by the mysterious Lord Otori Shigeru. Takeo's subsequent quest for revenge takes him to places he has never envisioned. His voyage is one of treachery, of honour and loyalty, of beauty and magic. It is also a journey of self-discovery, as he learns of talents he did not know he had: preternatural hearing, invisibility, and the ability to be in two places at once. Ultimately, though, it is a journey that will lead Takeo to his hidden destiny within the walls of Inuyama. "The orphan hero, the revenge theme, the premium placed on loyalty, and above all the battle between the forces of good and evil: these are the ingredients of the classic... and they are all present in abundance. When combined with passionate love, as here, the blend becomes even more heady." - Sunday Telegraph
