I am a big fan of historically-influenced fantasy, and Guy Gavriel Kay is one of my favorite writers in the genre. His world-building is complex and nuanced, his writing style poetic and heartbreaking.
I've read almost all of Kay’s published work and his classic story Tigana still remains near the top of the list. My full book review of it came out today at Bewildering Stories and is available to read here.
This is a world that feels real from page one, full of war, music and redemption. Every time I pick the story up, I can't put it down until I've reached the last page.
If you haven't read any of Kay's work, I'd suggest moving this book to the top of the to-read pile. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
I read a lot - depending on my writing schedule, I can usually read about a book a day. Some of the books are fantastic and I would love to recommend to everyone - some, not so much. Either way, I thought I would share a few thoughts on what I'm reading at the moment.
