Review in English:

Good day, book addicts! Remember Takeo of Otori Trilogy?

Well, we finally have the last book here! And I will surely give you the sneak peek!

This book will probably surprise you in the matter of changes in the pace of plot. As the book before is kind of slow-pace, this book will be different. Brilliance of The Moon will be full of events, wars, and unexpected circumstances.

By the end of Grass for His Pillow (the second book), us readers were left to believe that everything will be okay, which later in this book you will find out it’s not. There are still so many enemies to defeat, inevitable conflicts, collisions, and political frictions. Suddenly, there are a lot of things going on. You’ll be hopeful and desperate both at the same time. Someway along the story, you too, will question whether their decision was the right one.

Okay okay…I’ll just give you a little preview:

After their reunion in Terayama, Takeo and Kaede realized the wars upon them that they and the rest of the Three Countries have to bear because of their actions. Together this time, they unite their powers and try to put an end to their enemies, and bring back peace. But first of all, they need armies. They begin their long road to Maruyama, claiming Kaede’s rights, only to find them facing the siblings of their old nemesis blocking them. And it doesn’t stop there…..

Resensi dalam Bahasa:

Selamat malam! Masih penasaran dengan kelanjutan Trilogi Otori?

Yap, ini dia buku terakhirnya, dan sedikit kisi-kisinya! Hehehe…

Buku terakhir ini akan sedikit berbeda dari buku sebelumnya, dan yang paling terasa adalah perubahan dari kecepatan dalam alur ceritanya. Di buku Grass for His Pillow, tempo dari alurnya cukup lambat dan detail. Namun di buku ini, justru alur cerita menjadi cepat dan ada begitu banyak kejadian, konflik, perang, dan kejutan-kejutan.

Awalnya, mungkin setelah membaca Grass for His Pillow, kita mungkin mengira yang harus mereka hadapi sekarang hanya tinggal musuh-musuhnya, namun dengan situasi Takeo dan Kaede yang sudah jauh lebih pasti. Nyatanya, dalam buku ini ikatan Takeo dan Kaede akan tetap diuji, dan bahkan pembaca pun akan dibuat terlarut dan mempertanyakan lagi apakah keputusan mereka sudah benar di setiap langkahnya. Yang jelas, buku terakhir ini masih mengaduk emosi deh!

Oke..untuk cuplikannya sebagai berikut:

Setelah pertemuan dan persatuan Takeo dan Kaede di Biara Terayama, mereka berdua menyadari konflik dan tantangan yang harus mereka hadapi akibat dari keputusan-keputusan mereka. Namun dengan tekad kuat untuk tetap bersama, Takeo dan Kaede sepakat menyatukan kekuatan dan menghadapi musuh-musuhnya, dimulai dengan mengumpulkan pasukan. Mereka memulai perjalanan dan berderap menuju Maruyama, menuntut kembali hak resmi Kaede, dan menghimpun kekuatan. Namun mereka dengan segera harus menghadapi pertempuran, lagi dan lagi, semakin lama semakin besar pertaruhannya…
