Tigana (10th Anniversary Edition)by Guy Gavriel Kay
Synopses & Reviews
This is that rare, spellbinding, novel in which myth comes alive and magic reaches out to touch us. 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 years after the 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...Tgana.
Against the magnificently rendered background of a world both sensuous and barbaric, this sweeping epic of a passionate people pursuing their dream is breathtaking in its vision, changing forever the boundaries of fantasy fiction.
"[A] brilliant single-volume epic fantasy, rich in intrigue and subtlety. Memorable characters and cultures add depth to a gracefully plotted story." Library Journal
"Tolkien protege Kay's brilliant and complex portrayal of good and evil, high and low, will draw readers to this consuming epic." Publishers Weekly
"[A] bravura performance, nearly impossible to put down." Kirkus Reviews
"One of the best fantasy novels I have read." Anne McCaffrey
