The Summer Tree

Y meant to be For the five were 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 when the Unraveller unleashed his wrath upon the world. Buddy read with the fabulous Kay Suad at FBRAn amazing masterpiece by a brilliant writerWhit this book Kay manages to give you a story in which you can get lost and forget yourself reading for hours on end 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 evilIt 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 indeedAnd in a marvellous 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 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 ll make you feel as if you are not reading It sounds absurd I know But it s a fact Somewhere after the first few chapters you will suddenly realise that you feel as if your sitting cuddled next to your loved ones in a huge hall in front of a bright fire with a big mug of mead in your hands listening to a great bard tell you a wonderful gripping story that will leave you hanging on to his every word And that is Kay s greatest talentIf you love epic fantasy especially Tolkien type you re gonna love The Summer TreeIf you love books full of feelings with complex characters elegant prose and masterful writing you re gonna love The Summer TreeIf you love fairy tales told by the fire and want to forget yourself for a little while within the pages of a wonderful book The Summer Tree is your perfect choiceFind this review and on my book review and cover art blog The Magic Book Corner

Id for his need the need of Fionavar and all the worlds was great indeedAnd in a marvelous land of men and dwarves of wizards and gods and of the Unraveller and his minions of Darkness Kimberly Dave Jennifer Kevin and Paul discovered who they were trul. Five Canadian college students are transported to a magical kingdom and all of them are pretty blas about it Their lack of reaction cued me in pretty early on that I wasn t going to like this book None of these characters felt like real people to me the students are pretty interchangeable one s a bit crankier one has guilt two possess vaginas and they all completely lack one of the most important things in my opinion for a successful fantasy novel a sense of wonder Nothing about this other magical realm felt wondrous so when it was threatened I couldn t bring myself to care Which is a pity because I felt there were some interesting ideas buried in here Paul s story of redemption and self sacrifice is the type of thing that s usually right up my alley But it was stuck under a mountain of overwrought prose and I m not willing to wade through thatPlus FUN BONUS there was a brutal rape scene right at the end makes cranky face
