Guy Gavriel Kay has become my favorite author of adult fantasy and this book, I believe, is one of the best he has written with a depth and texture that I find incredible.

I loved this book! Fascinating characters, very suspenseful, and details that evoke the sights, sounds, and smells of the world he's describing. Love, honor, faith, decadence, murder, revenge, cutting-edge medieval medical miracles... this book has it all.

One thing I noticed, though, was that even though the main character is a woman, and there are a number of other "strong" female characters, this book still doesn't pass the Bechdel test.

This was a great book! One Kay's best! The characters were beautiful; I cared for them throughout. And he drew the tension and suspense of the end through past the last page into the epilogue. WOW!

Beautifully crafted, with characters that lift off the page to become genuine actors in a sweeping saga that pits peoples and cultures against each other while throwing individuals from these cultures into a complicated maelstrom of human interaction.

It is one of my favourite books.
