5.0 out of 5 stars Set a new high standard for fantasy, 18 Jan 2007
This review is from: Tigana (Paperback)
Tigana is a seminal work, a stunning distillation of fantasy elements into an acutely real world.

In the renaisssance Italy influenced world of Tigana, wizards, curses and ghostly apparitions sit along side violence, grief, love and terrible moral choices. The characters are emphatically written like real people, instead of the simplistic good or evil cyphers that populate so much of fantasy.

The plot cocerns the attempts of a band of freedom fighters to free their land from foreign domination, and the lengths they will go to to obtain liberty and justice.

If you want a book that is different, a book that features heroes who kill innocents and where one of the most honurable and sympathetic characters is the bad guy then this is the book for you.
