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.
