Heaven’s Net is Wide: Lian Hearn’s Otori series #1 of 4.5

This book is the prequel to Lian Hearn’s brilliant and beautiful Otori trilogy (there is also a fourth book, but although it’s still beautifully written I think it ruins the series). Fantasy has an (undeserved) reputation for being pulpy trash, full of adjectives and clichés. This series is top-notch literary fantasy.

The rest of this review is at Comfy Chair, where I get paid for it.
