    A great series about ancient Japan with its samurais and their conduct codes, ninja-like fighters, Christians' persecutions; it has political scheming, interesting turnabouts, intriguing liaisons between characters, sword fights, love, treachery, friendship.The characters are well-developed, complex, with inner turmoil and weaknesses.“You should never despise people because they haven’t had your opportunities.”

    Very interesting and nice story!!!!

    The stories take place in a fantasy world based on ancient Japan. The stories follow a boy, Takeo, as he is thrust into a warrior-based society after his family is slaughtered. It also follows the tale of Kaede, a beautiful, but cursed girl who becomes the love and passion of Takeo's life.The stories are derivative of many boy-hero books, you'll see hints of Lord of the Rings, and even Star Wars if you look carefully enough. While the book relies heavily on this style, it doesn't take away from [...]

    Having purchased all five books on the strength of the first, I am at a crossroads. This book delivered the lyrical, descriptive language that I found so enchanting in Book 1, and it also provided some plot twists that kept me on my toes. Where I felt it faltered was in the resolution of the story; which seemed to get wrapped up in what seemed like 15-20 pages or so. The denouement was even less palatable, with a fell of "and 20 years later." ***SPOILER ALERT: The pivotal role that the pirates a [...]

    Up until the middle of the third book, the plot was an almost uneventful build up towards the final showdown. Takeo was traveling around and gathering various factions to his side. He was also winning in skirmishes by using field tactics, which don’t really count as intelligent since his enemies were idiots who fell for the most obvious traps. Characterization took a nosedive as this point, since the enemy warlords turned into one dimensional madmen who love to kill and torture peasants for fu [...]

    This is a trilogy that has been sat on my shelves for years. I read Across the Nightingale Floor when I was a teenager, I can’t remember when I read it first but I then bought the sequel Grass For His Pillow straight after and I never finished it. Then, much much later, I found the third and final book in a charity shop and bought Brilliance of the Moon. Again I tried to reread the series but never finished. I made it my mission this year to do it. I was not putting it off again. So I decided [...]

    Quite impressive both in terms of plot and regarding style. Recommended.

    A strong third book.

    Worse than the second book, still keeps the epic adventure feeling while reading it. However, the quiet and slow pace of the second book that allows for one to feel the oriental scenery, is totally lost on this one. Action follows action, and all the necessary description (that was very well accomplished on the second book), is left aside, leaving the reader with much difficulty to feel all the fights, feelings, changes and even understand properly plot twists. Still, it is very easy to read and [...]

    Words cannot describe how disappointed I am with this book. The series started off so good, but then it all went downhill from there. It's like the Hunger Games trilogy, only this time, there's a fourth book.Unfortunately, if the book continues the pattern, it'll get 1 and 1/2 stars.Anyway, onto the review/rant.So, Takeo is getting his army ready to kill the Otori lords and Arai, and he knows he'll be able to do it because only his son can kill him. Luckily, his child with Kaede is dead. Unlucki [...]

    Takeo and Kaede have married and they are traveling to claim their respective lands. They become separated, when Takeo goes to make an alliance with the Tareda (pirates), and Kaede leaves Mariyama to visit her home, Shirakawa. She intends to bring back her sisters, but is instead ambushed by Lord Fujiwara who has her marriage to Takeo annulled and marries her himself. Takeo returns and discovers that his wife has been taken. Enraged, he sets off to destroy Fujiwara, but is intercepted by Lord Ar [...]

    Der letzte Teil der einstigen Trilogie verspricht genau das, was ich mir erhofft und was ich auch erwartet habe. Alles, was im 2. Band aufgebaut wurde, wird nun ausgearbeitet, verarbeitet und zu einem Abschluss gebracht und ich kann nur sagen, das Ende passt perfekt und ist richtig stimmig und hat mich berührt.Was ich an dieser Reihe so liebe ist vor allem Lian Hearns Schreibstil, der mich immer wieder an eine Japanerin erinnert. Natürlich trägt dies auch ihre Welt bei, die sich stark an das [...]

    Después de la nefasta segunda parte. Hearn remonta un poco el vuelo en esta entrega. Los personajes ya están donde quería la autora y ya puede llevar a cabo los acontecimientos que llevamos tanto tiempo sabiendo gracias a la Profecía, que se nos recuerda cada 2 páginas.Pues eso, ocurren y sabemos que van a ocurrir de antemano. El único interés es descubrir cómo. Y el cómo es entretenido, tiene alguna escena bastante visual e impactante. nada del otro mundo. Los malos son muy malos, los [...]

    Listening to this trilogy has been like immersing myself in a wonderfully developed myth of old Japan. It's fantastic, and if you've never listened to 'Across the Nightingale Floor,' then that is where you need to start.In the third volume, things are perched on the precipice. Can Takeo take his destiny into his own hands, and use war to bring peace to the lands? Will Kaede, who has become so much more than a helpless young woman, finally take control and escape the paper and silk prison she has [...]

    The last book in the "Tales of the Otori" but not really the end of the story so maybe they'll be another I enjoyed reading these. They take place in a medieval Japan. A boy, Takeo, is rescued by Lord Otori who will become his adopted father. The story centers around Takeo, the love of his life, Kaede, the Tribe, and the feudal wars of the time.There is a prequel to these called, "Heaven's Net is Wide". I'm starting it now but I wish I would have read it first.

    Sällan kan jag vara så säker på att en trilogi kommer att lämna mig med sådan saknad bara minuter efter att jag stängt boken.

    Recomiendo esta saga en un 100%!! Sus libros son Fantasticos!! No me arrepiento para nada de haber comenzado esta relectura *-*

    This one was way better thanGrass for His Pillow , but still, I found the ending of it a little bit rushed. But fans of the previous parts of the series shoud definitely read it.

    Brilliance of the Moon, por Lian Hearn é um livro que se passa num pseudo-japão, com ninjas à mistura, sobre um miúdo que nasce numa comunidade pseudo-cristã, e que é raptado por ninjas, treinado, e depois se torna num senhor da guerra.Ou seja, cultura japonesa a rodos.O que me deveria fazer AMAR estes livros, certo?Infelizmente, errado.Quando sairam originalmente, fiquei entusiasmadíssima, e fui comprar os dois primeiros a correr. Infelizmente, como é meu hábito, pus os livros para ler [...]

    The third installment of the series was a bit redeeming after a promising Book One and a disappointingly slow Book Two. Book Three makes you work for it though, as the interesting twists came after I was halfway through. I had thought that this was a 3 part series, though I now realise its actually 5 - with a prequel and final book from the point of view of Takeo's son. So in a way, it is a trilogy of Takeo Otori's story. I don't think I will be picking up the other two books unless I am looking [...]

    Me faltaban 30 páginas para terminarlo y lo dejé porque no podía interesarme menos. Además, nadie me iba a regañar por hacerlo, así que yolo.

    Three stars for a deus ex machina of an earthquake. Fujiwara deserved a more creative end, and Kaede deserved much more agency in it.

    The conclusion of the _Tales of the Otori_ Trilogy was ultimately disappointing. After an intriguing but not particularly noteworthy start in _Across the Nightingale Floor_ I started in on the second book, _Grass for his Pillow_ after reading the first chapter and discovering that it developed Kaede in intriguing and unexpected ways. However, in _Brilliance of the Moon_ the changes Kaede makes in her life, attempting to empower herself basically disappear once she marries Takeo. Although they ar [...]

    I just finished reading Brilliance of the Moon, by Lian Hearn. It is the third book in the Tales of the Otori series. I enjoyed this book more than the second book because the plot felt like it was really taking you to the conclusion of the story. The action and battles all lead up to the big battle at the end. When it was all over, I was really pleased and satisfied with the ending. I knew all the characters at this point, and it was easy to get absorbed in their life and want to see how things [...]

    After finishing the second in this great series, I had to find out about when the next would be due but I have to say that this book was truly worth waiting for and gave all I wanted as a great fan and a reader of the book.The third in the Tales of The Otori series starts off with Takeo endearing to have his land returned to him, as he was the legal heir to the Otori clan, and being adopted by the well known Lord Shigeru. With his Wife, Lady Shirakawa Kaede by his side, and many loyal men that m [...]

    I wasn't sure when I started reading this whether I really wanted to continue the series. I guess the second one didn't seize hold of me as much as the first, and so I wondered if this would be even 'lesser'. And for quite a while I was having my doubts met: it seemed like it was going to be all about war, an there were so many characters and I couldn't remember who they all were. But then something happened and I was pulled in.This continues the saga of Takeo and Kaede and their challenges to t [...]

    Somehow, Hearn, has finished the trilogy part of this wonderful story without missing a beat or disappointing the reader. So many "trilogies" fall short in later books. This one maintains the highest quality all the way to the end. The poetic quality of the writing will satisfy the most discerning critic, and the story is top notch. This series is likely one of the most enjoyable I have found in recent years. The world is so well developed that it feels completely real. The plot ends in an impre [...]

    With a complicated web of back-story set up and a return to familiar characters that we’ve seen develop, it goes without saying that Brilliance of the Moon should be the gripping climax of a trilogy that has thus far moved from strength to strength. The third and final instalment of the TALES OF THE OTORI series, the book has many loose ends to tie up, not to mention a certain prophecy that needs fulfilling. Across the Nightingale Floor and Grass for his Pillow were always going to prove tough [...]

    Le dernier tome de la trilogie m'a moins plu que les autres : Je trouve que son Héros est trop bon et vertueux et pleins de ressources, tout le monde l'adore sauf les méchants qui seront bien punis hmm hmm !ha et puis il y a la prophétie aussi, on en avait déjà entendu parler dans le deuxième tome mais là, c'est ce qui guide Takéo tout au long du récit. Je ne sais pas pour vous, mais moi les prophéties je commence à en avoir par dessus la tête. ça devient usant tous ces gens qui att [...]
