Promotional Information

An outstandingly beautiful and haunting final sequel to the Tales of the Otori, which does for medieval Japan what Game of Thrones does for medieval Europe.

About the Author

A lifelong interest in Japan led to the study of the Japanese language, many trips to Japan, and culminated in the writing of the Tales of the Otori series.Hearn is also the author of a two-volume prequel series to the Tales of the Otori, The Tale of Shikanoko, consisting of Emperor of the Eight Islands and Lord of the Darkwood.

Reviews

Much to enjoy - treacherous plots, possession by the spirits, cracking battle scenes, and Lian Hearn writes with a delicate attention to detail that creates an all-encompassing world around her characters. * Sunday Telegraph *
[The Harsh Cry of the Heron] builds to a climax that proves both fittingly cataclysmic and wholly satisfying. * Independent on Sunday *
An exquisite story . . . An involving adventure. * Daily Telegraph *
Gorgeously violent, complex and well-written. * The Times *
