This novel stand alone as a thrilling tale of passion, love and betrayal set in Japan a long time ago. Full of poignancy, it's totally gripping and as ever Lianâs writing is dazzling and laden with the atmospheric detail of the time.

If you've already read the three volumes of the Tales of Otori then you'll be clamouring for this one; if not Harsh Cry of the Heron will be enjoyed by all lovers of historical fiction.

If you like Lian Hearn you might also like to read books by Michelle Paver, Juliet Marillier and Tanith Lee.

Synopsis

Harsh Cry Of The Heron by Lian Hearn

An attempted assassination of Kaede reveals that the forces of destiny still bear down on Takeo. While his strength and power come from the enduring love of Kaede, the blind sage's prophecy that only his son could bring death to him, haunts his thoughts. This is an epic of warfare and sacrifice, revenge, betrayals and unconquerable love.
