Summary
The author of the Tales of the Otori series returns to her fantastical version of feudal Japan for this new epic saga. After surviving his greedy uncle's plot to murder him and steal his inheritance, orphan teen Kazumaru is taken in by sorcerer Shisoku, who dubs the lad Shikanoko, or "the deer's child." Taking possession of a magical mask, Shikanoko subsequently becomes involved in the civil war that's tearing society apart as warring factions vie for control of the empire. If you enjoy the morally ambiguous characters and political intrigue of this exciting series starter, keep an eye out for its forthcoming sequels: Autumn Princess, Dragon Child; Lord of the Darkwood; and The Tengu's Game of Go. -- Description by Gillian Speace
