really liked it
Read in January, 1988

Guy Gavriel Kay is just a good writer. This was his first book, an homage to J.R.R. Tolkien, but much better constructed in my mind, with well rounded, realistic characters and amazing writing, with a classical, well told story.

Kay has everything a good writer should have, with the integrity to write a series or novel in isolation without folding to publisher pressure to re-use the stuff that's already been successful.

While there is a feel of a common background, each of his stories is separate and doesn't need any of the others to be enjoyed. At the same time, if you do know the others, the reading experience is that much more enhanced.

I read everything this author writes.
