Author(s): Lian Hearn
HeavenÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs Net Is Wide is the first and last tale that both closes the circle and introduces readers to the strange and beautiful world of the Otori. It is an epic historical fantasy of revenge and betrayal, honour and loyalty, beauty and passion, and the overwhelming power of love set in a mythical, medieval Japan, which will enthral readers the world over. The world of the Otori has entranced readers since the first book in the Trilogy, Across The Nightingale Floor, was published in 2002. Now Lian Hearn again takes us back to the beginning; to a land that might be feudal Japan or may be another place altogether in the astonishingly beautiful prequel, HeavenÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs Net Is Wide.
