Briefly: very good, richly evocative as the other Otori books, and beautifully sets the stage for the rest of the series - both in events and the Otori character. You see and learn about certain traits that run through the Otori lords that help explains their triumphs and downfall in the other works. This puts a new light on the last book in particular, making Shigeko's actions stand out as an overcoming of the negative traits. The book stands on its own, but makes sense as an after-the-fact prequel.
