This is the first book in a new epic trilogy that has already become a bestselling sensation in England and Australia, earning comparisons to The Lord of the Rings. It begins with the legend of a nightingale floor in a black-walled fortress--a floor that sings in alarm at the step of an assassin. It will take true courage and all the skills of an ancient Tribe for one orphaned youth named Takeo to discover the magical destiny that awaits him...across the nightingale floor.
From the Publisher:
In a novel set in ancient Japan, the first volume in The Tales of the Otori trilogy, a young boy named Takeo becomes a pawn in the ceaseless wars between rival warlord clans in a culture ruled by codes of honor and formal rituals. Reprint.
The first novel of a planned five-part series, ACROSS THE NIGHTINGALE FLOOR is set in an imagined country very much like medieval Japan, where a village ruled by a diabolical warlord rebels by performing acts of kindness. When the ruler takes his revenge by destroying the village, one boy, teenaged Takeo, happens to be safely up in the hills overlooking the town. He is recruited by a rival clan to help strike down the evil lord, and he also encounters young Kaede, who may grow up to become the woman he loves. A New York Times Notable Book for 2002.


Kirkus Reviews
"Mythical medieval Japan never seemed so attractive as in this breezy epic....What could have been a SHOGUN-like exercise in bloat becomes a rousingly muscular piece of romantic adventure...." 06/15/2002
