Kay, Guy Gavriel: 


Kay is another of our favourite authors, he tends toward historical fantasy and mixes this up with myth. Well known for his work with Christopher Tolkien on 'The Silmarillion’, Kay writes books that are typically rich in the cultural settings created. His greatest work would be 'The Fionavar Tapestry’ a portal type trilogy thats just brilliant. 

This is the first edition of Tigana, a single novel thats large and deep. Great read.

In a chamber overlooking the nighttime waterways of a maritime city, a man looks back on his youth and the people who shaped his life. Danio Cerra's intelligence won him entry to a renowned school even though he was only the son of a tailor. He took service at the court of a ruling count--and soon learned why that man was known  as the Beast.

Danio's fate changed the moment he saw and recognized Adria Ripoli as she entered the count's chambers one autumn night--intending to kill. Born to power, Adria had chosen, instead of a life of comfort, one of danger--and freedom. Which is how she encounters Danio in a perilous time and place.

Vivid figures share the unfolding story. Among them: a healer determined to defy her expected lot; a charming, frivolous son of immense wealth; a powerful religious leader more decadent than devout; and, affecting all these lives and many more,  two larger-than-life mercenary commanders, lifelong adversaries, whose rivalry puts a world in the balance.
