Constructed with exquisite skill, it sings at the tread of each human foot. No assassin can cross it unheard. Brought up in a remote village among the Hidden, a reclusive and spiritual people, Takeo has learned only the ways of peace. Why, then, does he possess the deadly skills that make him so valuable to the sinister Tribe?

His journey is one of revenge and treachery, beauty and magic, and the passion of first love.

              Against a background of wild forest, elegant castles, hidden temples and savage battlefields, the adventure that began with Emperor of the Eight Islands draws to its thrilling conclusion in Lord of the Darkwood, the second instalment of Lian Hearn's the Tale of Shikanoko. The rig...htful emperor is lost. Shikanoko is condemned to live, half-man and half-deer, an outlaw in the Darkwood. Yet the mighty lords who now rule the Eight Islands are prey to suspicion and illness, and drought and famine choke the realm. Only Shikanoko can bring healing, by restoring the preordained ruler to the Lotus Throne. And only one person can bring him back from the Darkwood ...Praise for the TALE OF SHIKANOKO: 'Brutally thrilling historical fantasy' Herald Sun 'Wildly successful...Convince[s] as if being read in translation, as if Hearn is merely the medium for some lost and ancient text. Much like Game of Thrones, the book can be read as political intrigue, with great strength deriving from the character studies.

It is easy to let the book sweep the reader away, to engage with strange events...very compelling characters [and] huge imaginative vitality' Sydney Morning Herald 'The action comes thick and fast . ..Compelling characters and captivating worldbuilding' Japan Times 'A must-read' Aurealis 'One of the great joys of genre novels is that they usually care deeply about plot, satisfying the innately human desire for story. And there is story aplenty here. The unfolding events are so fascinating, the writing so lithe and seductive. There's no need to have read Hearn's earlier Otori series, set in the same remarkable fantasy world, to enjoy this one.

Orphaned by war, Sunaomi has been given a new name and a place of refuge at Terayama. If he ever leaves the temple he will be put to death. He is resigned to living out his life in seclusion. But fate has other plans for him and it is not long before he is dragged back into the world, with all its joys and dangers. And beyond that, another world of ghosts and monsters beckons to him as he discovers powers he never knew he had.
