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....

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

Drawing from her work as a psychoanalyst and cantadora (keeper of old stories), Dr. Estes uses myths and folktales to illustrate how societies systematically strip away the feminine spirit. Through an exploration into the nature of the wild woman archetype, Dr. Estes helps listeners rediscover and free their own wild nature.
