    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.

    Robert says: "Says a lot about who we are."
    "All heresy, no action"
    Overall

    For every section of the book where something actually happens, then are 3 sections where characters just sit around talking about what happened. I wish Mr. Kay had just cut about 60% of the dialogue and instead wrote a few more action sequences or at least character confrontations. And the "Mud-people"? Really?
    I hung on for way too long, got about 2/3 of the way through, but just couldn't deal with all the characters pining for long lost Tigana. Now, if the author had actually written the story about the fall of Tigana, now that might have been worth reading.
