4.5 stars. This book continues the alternative/fantastical history of medieval Japan started in the first volume, Tiger Lily.

Lily and Ashikaga navigate the obstacles of the Emperors court while keeping Ashikaga's secret safe. As a family ghost threatens, Lily turns to an old enemy for answers. An enemy with a new face and a new agenda. I enjoyed the dynamic between Lily and the other handmaidens as much as between Lily and her lordling. This story was as intricate as the setting in which it took place. I look forward to reading book one. ...more
