4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, evocative, poetic, 5 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Sailing to Sarantium (Earthlight) (Paperback)
As one who has read and reread the Fionavar Tapestry, I was a little dubious of this 'historical fantasy' and couldn't actually finish the book on the first attempt. I have now tried again and read this book and its sequel with the same enjoyment (and speed) as I read the Fionavar trilogy.
The novel requires patience as Kay builds his characters and sets his scene and then steadily raises the suspense as the story progresses. Characters are wonderfully drawn, the plot is intriguing and there is a level of art, poetisism, spirituality and romance that are rarely found in 'fantasy' novels.
I loved these books and will no doubt reread these again and again in the years to come.
