Praise for THE LAST LIGHT OF T HE SUN:
‘History and fantasy rarely come together as gracefully or readably as they do in the novels of Guy Gavriel Kay… [THE LAST LIGHT OF THE SUN] is an ambitious entertainment that transcends the historical record, offering cogent observations on fathers and sons, on the power of grief, on faith, courage, loyalty and the inevitability of change’ Washington Post
Praise for Guy Gavriel Kay:
‘A fine, intelligent series. Probably the best of its kind’ British Fantasy Society
‘A remarkable achievement. The essence of high fantasy’ Locus
‘Kay has delivered such a magnificent conclusion – I can’t praise it enough. THE FIONAVAR TAPESTRY will be read and reread for many years to come’ Fantasy Review
‘Packed with action…’
Guy Gavriel Kay's unique take on historical fiction has won him legions of admirers and made him an international bestseller. He is the author of eight highly acclaimed novels, including THE SARANTINE MOSAIC books and the acclaimed TIGANA. At the age of 20, he was asked by the Tolkien estate to help Christopher Tolkien with the editing of the Silmarrillion - the first and only time the estate has ever made such a request. His recently published book of poetry BEYOND THIS DARK HOUSE reached No 2 in the Canadian bestseller charts.

Unlike some of the reviewers, I have never read anything by this writer before. It is a sort imagined history set amongst the Vikings, Welsh Celts and Anglo Saxons and sets out a... Read morePublished on 30 Sept. 2013 by p r neil
Hadn't read this author for many a year and this book reminded me what a great author he is. The plot was well thought out and the book is gripping from start to finish. Read morePublished on 28 Aug. 2013 by christine
...but in this book Kay overdoes the authorial observations he likes to insert into his narratives. I haven't had a problem with this in his previous books - on the contrary, if... Read morePublished on 16 Jun. 2013 by Harry Callahan
