of darkness intend to unleash upon the world The Fionavar Tapestry cover art by Don Maitz and Janny WurtsThis incredible journey in a uniue world is told in Kay s usual elegant prose and his typical writing style full of poetry rhythm and realism While Kay is a deeply colourful writer for the most part he manages to never sacrifice character for poetry or portray his world just in the hollow tones of an epic saga There is often something wonderfully immediate in Kay s prose whether describing a city under drought a battle against dark creatures a humorous tavern brawl or most horribly yet most vividly torture and it s survivalWhat struck me the most with this particular book was the feeling I got while the story started to unfold from its pages Kay does something extraordinary here He
