I loved Across the Nightingale Floor and Grass for His Pillow, but was very disappointed in this 'final' book in the trilogy (although there is a new one out, plus a secondary series of books related to this series).

None of the fantasy elements that I enjoyed in the first two books came into much play in this book. Takeo and Kaede have married and are trying to claim Kaede's inheritance and at that same time ward off their enemies. Separated once again by circumstances beyond their control, they struggle to find a way back to each other. The books is filled with rather boring battles, and the love story of Takeo and Kaede seems very pedestrian this time around. Takeo seems to be the main focus of the book, while Kaede becomes a washed out, very docile shadow of her former self. Although the ending is somewhat satisfying the book itself was less so.

This is the third installment of the Otori Trilogy and it is as wonderful at the first two. The narration continues to be superb and the story it self is a blend of suspense, action, beautiful imagry, and a great love story. Well worth the time investment to listen to this trilogy in an unagridged format. 5 stars.

Truthfully, this is a slow series. The story is imaginative, but the writing lacks in detail that could make the story so much better. However, this was probably the best book in the series, possibly because I'm glad it's the last and now I'm done with it. It was definitely the most interesting even though towards the end things felt very rushed like the writer just wanted to get it done with and didn't care as much.

This is Book 3 of this wonderful trilogy, Tales of the Otori. I could not put them down. The descriptive narrative is first rate. Each book got progressively more intense and interesting. The author masterfully wove the details together for a great ending.
Enjoyable from the first to the last page.
