This review is from: Kay Guy Gavriel : Tigana (Mass Market Paperback)
This book was recommended to me by a friend, during a time when I believed that no good authors existed any more. Mr Kay has proved me wrong! This author is truly a wordsmith, and Tigana is possibly his finest story, as he tells a tale of magic, heartbreak and loss. Side by side with magic marches political intrigue, but Kay has described his world so richly that this does not seem a bizarre pairing. His characters are wonderfully flawed - no one individual is truly good or truly bad. He has written very human characters, allowing even the antagonist to merit sympathy from the readers. All in all, a truly fantastic book, and worth reading several times over throughout your life. Thanks to Guy Gavriel Kay, my faith in authors has been restored.
