I've read both of the Otori books and I can honestly say that they are the best I've ever read. I could not put them down. In fact I plowed through the second book in two days. Awesome.
ah_ku mei ^^

The first book had excited me and immediatly I read the next.

I have to say this is one of the most excellent book I have come across because

it suited me with rich context from the ancient history, which i LOVE.

Now, i'm waiting in anticipation for the third...

Oh gawd, my brain is tearing... help! Where is my third book???

This book is the best Ive read probably. I think its way better than the harry potter books and im surprised its not as well known. Great storyline and the the authour brings to life the charachters and the environment brilliantly. Im tryin to get all my friends to read. I cant wait for the third one.
