I can't believe it got such a low rating. Well actually I can come to think on it! It took me ages to read the first time and I stopped for a 3 yr gap. The text can be a little difficult but you will get used to it(only took me 3 yrs). But really it is worth the effort especially if you read Lord of Emperors too...promise

I'm a Guy Kay fan, so I suppose I'm biassed. And, true, it is not his best novel (that would still be Tigana) but this is a good read. I like his very careful world-building and he does seem to be particularly adept at creating well-rounded sympathetic characters. However, the book does not really stand on its own. It needs to be read in conjunction with Lord of Emperors.

If you ever find yourself in need to learn about the art of laying Mosaics this is the book to read!
