The Lovereading4Kids comment

Loyalty and honour, revenge and cruelty and above all love are the never endingly fascinating strands of the richly woven Tales of the Otori. This volume both introduces the complex world of the Otori and brings the long saga of stories to a close. Acts of great courage and nobility as well as moments of cruelty and violence are all elegantly recounted.

Synopsis

Heaven's Net Is Wide by Lian Hearn

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 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.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
