Grass for his Pillow

by Lian Hearn

In the ancient oriental lands of the Otori, amidst a time of violent war and famine, the fate of the young lovers Otori Takeo and Shirakawa Kaede hangs in the balance. Takeo has pledged his life to the secret Tribe. To follow their brutal directions and become their most deadly assassin he must deny the spiritual vows of his peaceful upbringing, his birthright of wealth, land and power — and his love for Kaede.
