    Tigana is the magical story of a beleaguered land struggling to be free. It is the tale of a people so cursed by the black sorcery of a cruel, despotic king that even the name of their once-beautiful homeland cannot be spoken or remembered.

    But after years of devastation, a handful of courageous men and women embark upon a dangerous crusade to overthrow their conquerors and bring back to the dark world the brilliance of a long-lost name: Tigana.

    Overall

    What more do I have to say than this is Guy Kay. He is in my opinion not only among the best fantasy writer working today, but one of the best writers. This is an early book of GGK's and still one of my favorites.
    Concentrating on the book it's self for a moment. This is a truly epic tale with a different twist. Although you will see shared ideas with some other great works of fantasy you will also be confronted with ideas you have never seen before. A second wonderful thing about this book is that it is unapologetically adult in tone, situation, and level of writing. There is nothing dumbed down in this book. The writing is hard, and beautiful. The deaths are real and painful, and yes the sex is also real and also sometimes painful. The last point I want to make about the book is that the "bad guys" are not all bad guys. They do horrible things but unlike much fantasy they are not just evil incarnate, they are real people that you end up caring about.
    Concentrating on the reading...perfect. You could not ask for a better reader.
