I am really having a blast reading the “Tales of the Otori is a series of historical fantasy novels by Lian Hearn, set in a fictional world based on feudal Japan.” It is a trilogy of five books. I know, odd. But there is a prequel which I read first and a sequel. Great stuff. “The books follow a young warrior named Takeo in his struggles to avenge an adoptive father, escape the legacy of his biological father, and pursue the love of his life in the midst of an enormous power struggle involving dozens of clan lords and thousands of warriors.”
It is making me really want to investigate the era of feudal Japan. I picked up a couple of mystery novels set in the same time period. I’ll let you know what they are like when I get to them..
