Publisher's Summary

In his palace at Inuyama, Lord Iida Sadamu, warlord of the Tohan clan, surveys his famous nightingale floor. Its surface sings at the tread of every human foot, and no assassin can cross it. But 16-year-old Otori Takeo, his family murdered by Iida's warriors, has the magical skills of the Tribe - preternatural hearing, invisibility, a second self - that enable him to enter the lair of the Tohan. He has love in his heart and death at his fingertips....
Lian Hearn's stunningly powerful best seller, Across the Nightingale Floor, is an epic story for young and old. Set in a mythical feudal Japanese land, a world both beautiful and cruel, the intense love story of two young people takes place against a background of warring clans, secret alliances, high honour and lightning swordplay.
The first novel in the epic Tales of the Otori series, Across the Nightingale Floor is followed by Grass for His Pillow and Brilliance of the Moon.

can't stop listening

I read this book and all others Tales of the Otori books many years ago, when I was a teenager. I remember how much I loved them so downloaded the to listen once again. Story is very interesting, voices of the narrators are calm amd suitable. It is not a boring love story or anything, story has a but of everything. The story gets to you so you don't want to stop listening. I was listening quite a lot of it on a plane as was traveling - I got sad when plane is about to land and I had to stop my audiobook 😂 10/10
