    From the multiple award-winning author of Tigana, A Song for Arbonne, and the three-book Fionavar Tapestry that "can only be compared to Tolkien's masterpiece" (Star-Phoenix), this powerful, moving saga evokes the Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, and Norse cultures of a thousand years ago.

    B. Picard says: "Wonderful story"
    "A Real Writer"
    Overall

    This is a beautiful story. These days, it's getting tougher to find books that not only boast of a good plot, but are actually written well. Kay uses lyrical language to the point where I stopped the iPod several times to simply gawk. Some of the metaphors, sentences and descriptions are--in a word--breathtaking. The fights are brutal, the characters are vivid in the extreme, and the themes of redemption, spiritual reality and loyalty ring like hammers off an anvil of solid prose. Having this book in your library is, to quote the author, "needful as night's end."
