#15: Across the Nightingale Floor -- Lian Hearn

Fantasy world based on ancient Japan, complete with samurai, assassins etc. The writing is impressively spare and clean -- very visual, too; it's like watching Hero. Perhaps because of the setting, there's an emotional distance to the characters, too. I'll read the other volumes (I believe it's a trilogy), but I won't seek them out. Not yet, anyway.
