The Harsh Cry of the Heron is the fourth book in the Tales of the Otori series by Lian Hearn. Don’t miss the related series, The Tale of Shikanoko. A dazzling epic of warfare and sacrifice, passionate revenge, treacherous betrayal, and unconquerable love, The Harsh Cry of the Heron takes the storytelling achievement of Lian Hearn’s fantastic medieval Japanese world to startling new heights of drama and action.
