Peace comes at the price of bloodshed. Five battles will buy you peace. Four to win and one to lose.
With international sales already over one million copies, Tales of the Otori draws to a close with the publication of book three in the trilogy, Brilliance of the Moon.
Determined to avenge Shigeru’s death and claim Takeo’s rightful inheritance, Takeo and Kaede fight their way to the domain of Maruyama. Here, despite their recent marriage, they must separate. Takeo begins to make plans for an attack by the sea and Kaede returns to her home in Shirakawa. When Kaede arrives, she is imprisoned with her sisters in Lord Fujiwara’s house. She can see no way to escape the powerful and fearful lord and begins to believe that she and Takeo will be forever separated.
Are Takeo’s skills of magic and his desire for revenge enough to outwit two armies? And will he and Kaede ever find a peaceful way to live their lives together?
