I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The author has created a world, characters, and plot that are unlike conventional fantasy fiction. True, it took a little effort to get into the story at first, but before long the story, the characters, and their back stories captivated me. It also took a short time to get used to the reader. The story is well written and left me feeling like I really visited some place wonderful and fantastic. Unlike another reviewer, I felt an attachment to a number of characters. Lastly, the author provides a rich and satisfying conclusion.
If you are looking for conventional swords and sorcery action, this might not be the book for you. If you are looking for a compelling and coherent story from start to finish, a believable fantasy world, some unexpected plot twists, and a satisfying escape, then give Tigana a try. I am off to find my second Guy Gavriel Kay story.
