Críticas:

Praise for The Fionovar Tapestry trilogy

"Kay's bestselling - and stunning - fantasy trilogy finds its power not in its feats of imagination or world-building (though there are dazzling heapings of both) but from its rootedness in the reality of human emotions and relationships." -- The Globe and Mail
"Immense scale, literary richness and dazzling heroes."-- Toronto Star
"A remarkable achievement . . . the essence of high fantasy."-- Locus
"A grand galloping narrative . . . reverberates with centuries of mythic and incantory implications--with a little Prince Hal and Falstaff on the side."-- Christian Science Monitor
"The Fionavar Tapestry, when all is said and done, is one of the most beautifully written and moving fantasy trilogies ever written. Those are very large words, but I truly believe this book is large enough to fit into such a reputation."--Green Man Review
Praise for the novels of Guy Gavriel Kay

"History and fantasy rarely come together as gracefully or readably as they do in the novels of Guy Gavriel Kay."-- The Washington Post Book World

Reseña del editor:

The Summer Tree is the first novel of Guy Gavriel Kay's critically acclaimed fantasy trilogy, The Fionavar Tapestry. Five university students embark on a journey of self-discovery when they enter a realm of wizards and warriors, gods and mythical creatures--and good and evil...

It all began with a lecture that introduced five university students to a man who would change their lives, a wizard who would take them from Earth to the heart of the first of all worlds--Fionavar. And take them Loren Silvercloak did, for his need--the need of Fionavar and all the worlds--was great indeed.

And in a marvelous land of men and dwarves, of wizards and gods, five young people discovered who they were truly meant to be. For they are a long-awaited part of the pattern known as the Fionavar Tapestry, and only if they accepted their destiny would the armies of the Light stand any chance of surviving the wrath the Unraveller and his minions of darkness intend to unleash upon the world...
