The Emperor of the Eight Islands by Lian Hearn

That was my experience with EMPEROR OF THE EIGHT ISLANDS. EMPEROR OF THE EIGHT ISLANDS is the first book in The Tale of Shikanoko, the new series from Lian Hearn. There are four books, all to be published before July from Farrar, Straus and Giroux’s (fairly new) digital imprint.
