Guy Gavriel Kay has a style that is spare and succinct, yet richly inspires the imagination. I read these books when they were first published with great enthusiasm. It was fantastic to revisit these books so many years later in this format. I was surprised at how well they transpose. The story is compelling and deeply affecting. I am already re-listening to the series. The story moves along quickly, and there is no wasted prose. For those that like Card or King, you'll likely enjoy the style of writing. The books contain some brutal scenes and some mature elements... definitely not for the pre-teen. For adults however... it's a rare find.
