Read full description of the books Brilliance of the Moon:A beautiful, haunting evocation of a time and place just beyond the reach of an outside world, Brilliance of the Moon transports us once again to a medieval Japan of Hearn's imagination, a land of formal ritual and codes, harsh beauty and deceptive appearance. Otori Takeo and Shirakawa Kaede are now married and more resolved than ever to strengthen their domains. Yet their hasty marriage has enraged Arai Daiichi, the warlord who controls most of the Three Countries, and has insulted the nobleman Lord Fujiwara, who considered Kaede betrothed to him. The third book in the Tales of the Otori, Brilliance of the Moon follows Takeo and Kaede as they attempt to consolidate their powers and fulfil the holy woman s prophecy, Your lands will stretch from sea to sea, but peace comes at the price of bloodshed. Five battles will buy you peace, four to win and one to lose A thrilling follow-up to Grass for His Pillow and Across the Nightingale Floor, Brilliance of the Moon takes us deeper into the complexities of the loyalties that bind the novel s characters from birth. Filled with adventure and surprising twists of plot and fortune, it also provides a rare glimpse beyond the Three Countries, as outside influences intrude upon this isolated realm.
