Utterly epic. Samurai warlords, ninjas, magic, first love. Writing like nothing you’ve ever read before. Mind-blowing fantasy set in Ancient Japan. In his black-walled fortress at Inuyama, the murderous warlord Iida Sadamu surveys his famous nightingale floor. Made with exquisite skill, it sings at the touch of a human foot. No assassin can cross it unheard. Until now. Raised in a mountain village among 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? Uncanny powers which will lead him to his violent destiny within the walls of Inuyama. And to an impossible longing for a girl who can never be his.
