2nd in the Tales of the Otori series, set in an imaginary ancient Japan
Mystery Lovers Review:
Tales of the Otori is an unusual series of novels, a sort of fantasy but set in the world of medieval Japan. Beginning with Across the Nightingale Floor, we follow the adventures of a young man, Otori Takeo and his lover Kaede who must navigate between powerful groups with their own agendas. Grass for His Pillow continues this story which is perfect not only for adults but for older teens looking for something different.
