”A welcome sequel…deliciously readable. In this new volume, we find ourselves once again transported to a medieval Japan of the imagination: a harsh land ruled by local warlords, an essentially static social order in which family ties bind tightly, a culture that mixes great refinement with unspeakable brutality…Reads like a fine translation from the Japanese.”&#151The New York Times Book Review

”This is the second installment in Hearn’s trilogy and astonishingly it’s even better than volume one…the emotional power of the story is vastly magnified. Time and destiny are almost tangible in the novel…The beauty, savagery and strangeness of Hearn’s gripping tale is heightened by her exquisite, crystalline prose.”&#151The Independent on Sunday (UK)
