The summer tree - Guy Gavriel Kay

Guy Gavriel Kay's first entry in the Fionvar Tapestry.

Look people, it's a fantasy book. Think of it as Lord of the Rings meets Chronicles of Narnia - except not as epic. Five twenty somethings from earth get pulled into the world of Fionvar, first amongst all worlds. There they meet your usual fantasy folk - mages, wizards, princes, dwarves, evil doers (not unlike North Korea, Iraq and Iran I might add).

I found the book to be too dense with intricate layers of information. But I read on, and of course now, I'm hooked and need to read the second book. The Summer Tree is not very self contained - it is simply the first volume of a longer book. I'm pretty sure publishers do this on purpose to sell more books and make extra cash. What they don't realize is that I love the public library! Aha!

Next up, The Wandering Fire.

There, where the darkness was almost complete, it looked once over its shoulder and then, with unnatural agility, began to climb hand over hand over the Convocation Hall.

p.s. I know my blog has sucked lately. I have some good ideas and will hopefully find some time to bring them to fruition.
