Lord of the Darkwood (The Tale of Shikanoko)
By: Lian Hearn (author)Paperback
Against a background of wild forest, elegant castles, hidden temples and savage battlefields, the adventure that began with Emperor of the Eight Islands draws to its thrilling conclusion, in Lian Hearn's Lord of the Darkwood.The rightful emperor is lost. Shikanoko is condemned to live, half-man and half-deer, an outlaw in the Darkwood. Yet the mighty lords who now rule the Eight Islands are prey to suspicion and illness, and drought and famine choke the realm. Only Shikanoko can bring healing, by restoring the preordained ruler to the Lotus Throne. And only one person can bring him back from the Darkwood . . .
Lian Hearn studied modern languages at Oxford University and worked as a film critic and arts editor in London before settling in Australia. She is the author of Across the Nightingale Floor, the first in the internationally acclaimed Tales of the Otori series. Grass for His Pillow, Brilliance of the Moon, The Harsh Cry of the Heron and Heaven's Net is Wide follow.
