Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from Hachette Australia in exchange for an honest review.
Lian Hearn returns in top form with Emperor Of The Eight Islands. Once again, she seamlessly weaves Japanese myth and history into a brand new tale. This is a first in a series, and it features a sprawling epic, with much of the novel feeling like a prelude to an even grander story. I am already clamouring for more.
Your life is not your own. You will die to one life and rise to another, to become what you are meant to be.
