Product description


Praise for The Fionovar Tapestry

"Kay has delivered such a magnificent...volume that I can't praise it enough. The Fionavar Tapestry is a work that will be read for many years to come. It is a book that makes one proud to be working in the same genre as its author."--Charles de Lint

"I'm overwhelmed...The Summer Tree is one of those books that change your perception of the world forever afterward."--Marion Zimmer Bradley

"A remarkable achievement...the essence of high fantasy."--Locus

"Kay's intricate Celtic background will please fantasy the manner of The Silmarillion, the posthumous Tolkien work that Kay helped edit."--Publishers Weekly

"Immense scale, literary richness and dazzling heroes."--Toronto Star

"Certainly this is one of the very best of the fantasies which have appeared since Tolkien, and I trust it will be recognized as such."--Andre Norton

"This is the only fantasy work I know which does not suffer by comparison to The Lord of the Rings."--Interzone

"Can be compared only with Tolkien's masterpiece. A passionate battle between good and delights the spirit."--Star-Phoenix

"Satisfying...a highly literate, lovingly detailed work of fantasy."--Fantasy Review

"Kay's bestselling--and stunning--fantasy trilogy finds its power not in its feats of imagination or world-building (though there are dazzling heapings of both) but from its rootedness in the reality of human emotions and relationships."--The Globe and Mail

"A grand galloping narrative...reverberates with centuries of mythic and incantory implications--with a little Prince Hal and Falstaff on the side."--Christian Science Monitor

"The Fionavar Tapestry, when all is said and done, is one of the most beautifully written and moving fantasy trilogies ever written. Those are very large words, but I truly believe this book is large enough to fit into such a reputation."--Green Man Review
