A murderous warlord sleeps beyond his nightingale floor, believing himself to be safe, for the floor will sing at the tread of a human foot. But an extraordinary boy, raised by both assassins and the gentle people of his homeland, plots vengeance against the warlord for unspeakable crimes. He has sworn to cross the nightingale floor, not only for those he has lost, but to save the woman he loves.
An astonishing book from a remarkable new talent, Across the Nightingale Floor tells a story of originality and wonder set in an ancient and mythical Japan.
