A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with
passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly
anticipated “Tales of the Otori” trilogy.
Sixteen-year-old Takeo’s village has been massacred by an
evil warlord, and he is about to be slain by the men who murdered his parents
and neighbors. At the last moment, his life is saved by a nobleman, who claims
the boy as his kin and begins his education.
But nothing is as it seems. Takeo discovers that he has rare
powers that are useful to those around him. As he grows into manhood, he must
decide where his loyalties lie: with his noble master and adoptive father; with
the Hidden, a secret, spiritual sect whose beliefs are forbidden; or with the
Tribe, the assassins and spies who consider him one of their own.
A story of treachery, political intrigue, and the intensity
of first love, set in a world ruled by formal ritual and codes of honor, Across the Nightingale Floor crosses
genres, generations, and genders to captivate fans of all ages.
