Shelfari edited the description of Tigana Friday, July 31, 2009.
With a new introduction by the acclaimed bestselling author, this is the spectacular deluxe tenth-anniversary edition of a fantasy classic--the sweeping tale of sorcery, magic, politics, war, love, betrayal, and survival... "A richly sensuous fantasy world, full of evocative history, religions, folklore, local customs, and a magical rites...a bravura performance, nearly impossible to put down."-- Kirkus Reviews "Kay's brilliant and complex portrayal of good and evil, high and low, will draw readers to this consuming epic."-- Publishers Weekly "A brilliant single-volume epic fantasy, rich in intrigue and subtlety. Memorable characters and cultures add depth to a gracefully plotted story."-- Library Journal "Massively satisfying...startlingly new." -- Toronto Star "The heir to Tolkien's tradition."-- Booklist "One of the best fantasy novels I have read."-- Anne McCaffrey
