Liam Hearn’s Tale of Shikanoko series is one of mystery, magic, folklore, and medieval Japan. The second volume in the series, Autumn Princess, Dragon Child, is now available from FSG Originals.
The first novel in the series, Emperor of the Eight Islands, introduced readers to a mythical medical japan filled with forests, royal courts, and raging battles for the Lotus Throne. Volume 2 of this series picks up where the first left off and Shikanoko must rise to new challenges. I’ll let the back cover fill you in:
Shikanoko has been humbled by failure, and his once clear destiny has become clouded . . .
The Autumn Princess and the boy who is the true emperor are fugitives in the forest, alone and unprotected . . .
In the mountain sorcerer’s hut a new generation of the Old People is born―the Spider Tribe, not quite human, not quite demons, and quickly coming of age . . .
One clan is in retreat, the other holds the capital, and natural disasters follow one upon another. Will Heaven ever be placated?
