Product description

Product Description

Guy Gavriel Kay, bestselling author of the groundbreaking novels Under Heaven and River of Stars, once again visits a world that evokes one that existed in our own past, this time the tumultuous period of Renaissance Europe-a world on the verge of war, where ordinary lives play out in the grand scheme of kingdoms colliding.

From the small coastal town of Senjan, notorious for its pirates , a young woman sets out to find vengeance for her lost family. That same spring, from the wealthy city-state of Seressa, famous for its canals and lagoon, come two very different people: a young artist traveling to the dangerous east to paint the Grand Khalif at his request-and possibly to do more-and a beautiful oman, posing as a doctor's wife in her role of a spy.

The trading ship that carries them is commanded by the clever younger son of a merchant family -with ambivalence about the life he's been born to live. And farther east a boy trains to become a soldier in the elite infantry of the khalif-to win glory in the war everyone knows is coming.

As these lives entwine, their fates-and those of many others-will hang in the balance, when the khalif sends out his massive army to take the great fortress that is the gateway to the western world...

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a terrific read and I loved the fact it was set in the Renaissance period, one of my favorite historical periods. The world is beautifully imagined with numerous characters, both political and regular citizenry - military and religious leaders, priestesses, farmers, and many, many more. Because of the number of characters, it required a bit more concentration to keep track of them, and I did not bond well with any of them, but the storytelling and plot overshadowed this fact to make the book well worth reading. The author's writing is flowing and easy to fall into, seamlessly moving from one scene to another. The plot brought out my emotions as I read - shock, sadness, anger. The story is definitely plot driven rather than character driven, with plenty of action and twists. This was the first book by this author that I have read, and I definitely am interested in reading more. Definitely recommended for fantasy lovers.
