I enjoyed this series. Brilliance of the moon continues in the same way as the first two, Across the Nightingale Floor and Grass for his Pillow, however I felt that the ending was a bit rushed and the closure to the characters seemed a bit forced.

Even though it was the end of the trilogy, it left an opening that can show what happened after Lord Takeo brought peace to the Three Countries!
