I came across this book in my early teens and gave up on it after 15-20 pages, I was used to the likes of Tolkien and Gemmel and perhaps found it a little obscure or difficult to read at that age. A Bard living a hermit existance deep in the woods is approached by Death and enticed into attempting some task in exchange for the lure of a great reward....... The Bard accepts then goes off and climbs a mountain and blah blah. I grew into an avid (but extremely critical) fantasy reader and returned to the book some ten years later and the trilogy has remained without a doubt one of my favourite reads. If you can pick up a cheap copy then do yourself a favour and grab one, the story is rich in character and dark in tone, in a time when all fantasy books were elves this and bearded wizards that. Obviously, doing anything for Death isnt going to be straight forward and as the story evolves a whole pantheon of Old Gods and New Gods at constant war with each other is developed and the theme of faith lending substance a nice touch.
