An amazing read!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sailing to Sarantium (Paperback)
I am quite new to fantasy fiction, having picked up Kay's "Under Heaven" in a charity shop. I enjoyed this immensely, so when i checked on Amazon to see what I could get further from this, to me anyway, brilliant author, I chose the Sarantine Mosaic novels and Tigana. I have just finished reading Sailing to Sarantium and it left me craving to start the second book, "Lord of Emperors". I love his style of writing, and the way he broadens the story out by bringing in a different angle from some of the other characters. It doesn't matter to me that Sarantium and Rhodias are, presumably, Constantinople and Rome in a different world, if I can see in my mind's eye what is being described in the novel, then I am content to go along with it.
