More Ninjas, More Samurai

A couple of days ago I finished the second book of the “Tales of the Otori” series, “Grass For His Pillow”, and now I’m about half-way through the third, “Brilliance Of The Moon”. If I didn’t explain it well enough before, let me just say that this is really a great series.

This part is a secret, at least for the next 24 hours, so don’t tell anyone, ok? I gave Mary, my friend who just turned 30, hardcover copies of all three books for her birthday. Promise you won’t say anything to her? They’re not going to show up at her place until sometime tomorrow.

Several years ago, Mary gave me “Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone” for my birthday. (This was after “Prisoner Of Azkaban” but before “Goblet Of Fire”.) I loved that book and really enjoyed all ones since. I’m so glad that Mary introduced me to that series. I am hoping she will get as much enjoyment out of Lian Hearn’s books.
