Lian Hearn is the pseudonym of an author that has been creating fantastical tales set in Japan. She’s the author of the bestselling series Tales of the Otori and now, her newest series is about to start releasing from FSG Originals.
The four volume Tale of Shikanoko will be released throughout the year with the first volume, Emperor of the Eight Islands coming out on April 26th. Having already read this first volume, I can tell you that you’re in for a precisely written story filled with mysteries mythical in scope and magic more subtle than a demonic assassin. Blending medieval Japan with fantasy, Hearn crafts a book you’ll blaze through in a weekend and you’ll be left wanting more. Good thing all four volumes are being released in rapid succession!
