This was really depressing. Takeo and Kaede have been ruling in relative peace for sixteen years, but now everything falls apart. I really couldn't like them very much. Kaede dislikes and fears her daughters just because they are twins which turns one into the monster she is expected to be, Takeo has kept his son a secret from his wife all this time, with tragic consequences, and he's horrible to someone he should care for. They just aren't the generally nice people I remembered. ( )

Review:
Wow, I didn't particularly care for the previous book but that was personal preference. But this one... This one I really did not like my experience reading The Harsh Cry of the Heron. It was so boring. And long. AND BORING. Lian Hearn described everything in too much detail. Superfluous detail even. And there were so many characters we switched perspectives to. Even when they added nothing new to the story and had nothing going on in the moment.

And there was just so much that was repeated throughout the course of the book. I lost count of the amount of times the same thing happened. Or they said something was going to happen. Part of the blame rests in the amount of narration switches. But part of it is just the fault of the author repeating herself for the sake of repetition.

And have I said this was boring? Just so little happened throughout the book. The other books were slow and didn't have a lot happening in them. This was just a slog. I'm genuinely unsure how I made it to the end.

And the end was really, really not worth it. If you have read the preceding trilogy, you know how it is going to end. But you don't know what is going to happen for that ending to occur. You don't know how it is going to play out. And that is what I have so many issues with. I hated it. You aren't meant to see what happens after the fairy tale ending. Takeo and Kaede had their fairy tale ending in the previous book. I'm sad to have read this. ( )

Disappointing after the first four books of the Otori series. From the start, this book seemed darker and my expectation was of disaster. It seemed like the author had a life change after writing the first 4 books and was in a more depressed, less optimistic, hopeful mood and the book reflected that. Not that a happy ending is mandatory for me, but rather a better rendering of the character's lives that fits the past books. This book seemed out of character for how this world was in the earlier stories and less interesting. Previously I could hardly put the books down. With this book it was almost drudgery to finish it.

"Le clan des Hotori" de Lian Hearn (4 volumes et une préquelle). Un roman fleuve et une histoire de famille dans un Japon médiéval et fantastique. Romance et tragédie, batailles et spiritualité, références historiques et mystères s'y mêlent en permanence. Une narration plus dense aurait cependant évité quelques longueurs. ( )

Stop at the third book. I should have.
The story meanders, the characters lack fullness and the ending is telegraphed from page one. ( )

The sound of the Gion Shoja bells echoes the impermanence of all things. 
The colour of the sala flowers reveals the truth that the prosperous must decline.
The proud do not endure, they are like a dream on a spring night; 
The mighty fall at last, they are as dust before the wind.
