Wein, Elizabeth E. A Coalition of Lions. New York: Firebird Books, 2003.

[personal profile] oyceter commented to me that these books remind her quite a lot of Megan Whalen Turner's Eugenides books, and I unequivocally agree; consider that a recommendation. That is just about all the reaction--and praise--that I can in good conscience leave outside of a spoiler cut.

I owe many people thanks relating to this manga: [livejournal.com profile] ladydarkmoon and [livejournal.com profile] ashura_sama for scans and translations, which I read when I was first getting into the manga (back when I was just starting to learn Japanese!); [livejournal.com profile] chibiyuuto for encouragement and unflagging CLAMP enthusiasm; [livejournal.com profile] nokiirat for help scanning and for being a champion mod; and [livejournal.com profile] scottishrefugee, for scanning the pages I sent from Japan every week. Thanks as well to everyone who's commented on these translations; your support has meant a lot. Without further ado…

ETA: The raws are missing pages 26 and 27; I'll update the translation when they become available. Missing pages added, with thanks to anonymous!

Once the harvest is in and the animals put away for the winter/To stand at the uncomprehending window cultivating the desert/With salt tears which will never do anyone any good. )
