Heaven's Net is Wide

On the plain of Yaegahara, a bloody battle between clans leaves Otori Shigeru desperate for vengeance. Meanwhile, in a remote mountain village, a boy is born with supernatural gifts: powers inherited from his father, once the deadliest assassin of the Tribe. This gripping tale of betrayal, revenge, magic and love begins and ends the Tales of the Otori series, closing the circle opened in Across the Nightingale Floor.

“Violent and rivetingly elegant.” The Washington Post
