Across the Nightingale Floor by Lian Hearn - A Review
Tomasu is an interesting and likable character. In fact, I liked all the characters in this book. They were well thought out and played their parts well. With all the clan in-fighting, it could have been difficult to follow, but I thought Hearn did a marvelous job in separating all the different plots and at the same time bringing them all together to create a cohesive book. I had a hard time putting this book down (or pausing it, in this case). I was intrigued from the get-go. In fact, I decorated my house for Halloween while I listened to it.
This book is not for the faint of heart, however and it is definitely not for the audience it is intended-Young Adult. There is a ton of graphic violence and one sex scene that is definitely not appropriate for a young adult audience. This is an adult book for sure and not all adults.
I'm currently reading Bound by C.K. Bryant, Armour of Light by Karen Hoover, and The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan. I just finished How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper.
