The Lovereading4Kids comment
The vast scale of this enthralling story encompasses heroism, treachery, cowardice and love in a gripping combination. Set in Japan in a distant time, the actions and the cast are huge and memorable. At the heart of the story is Takeo who, during the course of it, grows from being just a young boy to becoming heir to the mighty Otori clan, ruled over by the mysterious Lord Otori Shigeru, the man who adopts him. But Takeo’s path is not a smooth one. He has magical powers himself and is therefore wanted by others than the great Shigeru. And he falls headlong into love…A dazzling introduction to a sequence of novels that includes passion and violence in a beautiful combination.

Across The Nightingale Floor by Lian Hearn
In his palace, Lord Iida Sadamu, warlord of the Tohan clan, surveys his famous nightingale floor. Its surface sings at the tread of human foot and no assassin can cross it. But Otori Takeo, his family murdered by Iida's warriors, has magical skills that allow him to enter Samadu's lair.
