Reviews

Across the Nightingale Floor was described to me by the young man in Borders bookshop as a "Japanese Harry Potter, only better". In fact, it's a different beast entirely. Much darker, much sharper, much less predictable -- Daily Telegraph on 'Tales of the Otori' An original and exquisitely wrought adventure story -- Observer on 'Tales of the Otori' Across the Nightingale Floor remains quite simply the best story of magic, love, sex, revenge and suspense to have come this way since Philip Pullman -- Independent on Sunday on 'Tales of Otori' An enthralling and original work of fantasy -- The Times on 'Tales of the Otori' The writing is extraordinary . . . Virtually pitch perfect -- Evening Standard on 'Tales of the Otori' The plot is gripping and the writing is beautiful, packed with authentic, atmospheric detail -- Daily Mail on 'Tales of the Otori' A thrilling tale of love, violence, loyalty and betrayal -- Guardian on 'Tales of the Otori'
