From the multiple award-winning author of Ysabel, Tiganaand A Song for Arbonne, this powerful, moving saga evokes the Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, and Norse cultures of a thousand years ago.

There is nothing soft or silken about the north. The lives of men and women are as challenging as the climate and lands in which they dwell. For generations, the Erlings of Vinmark have taken their dragon-prowed ships across the seas, raiding the lands of the Cyngael and Anglcyn peoples, leaving fire and death behind. But times change, even in the north, and in a tale woven with consummate artistry, people of all three cultures find the threads of their lives unexpectedly brought together...

Bern Thorkellson, punished for his father's sins, commits an act of vengeance and desperation that brings him face-to-face, across the sea, with a past he's been trying to leave behind.

In the Anglcyn lands of King Aeldred, the shrewd king, battling inner demons all the while, shores up his defenses with alliances and diplomacy-and with swords and arrows-while his exceptional, unpredictable sons and daughters pursue their own desires when battle comes and darkness falls in the woods.

And in the valleys and shrouded hills of the Cyngael, whose voices carry music even as they feud and raid amongst each other, violence and love become deeply interwoven when the dragon ships come and Alun ab Owyn, chasing an enemy in the night, glimpses strange lights gleaming above forest pools.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for THE LAST LIGHT OF THE SUN:

'History and fantasy rarely come together as gracefully or readably as they do in the novels of Guy Gavriel Kay... [THE LAST LIGHT OF THE SUN] is an ambitious entertainment that transcends the historical record, offering cogent observations on fathers and sons, on the power of grief, on faith, courage, loyalty and the inevitability of change' Washington Post

Praise for Guy Gavriel Kay:

'A fine, intelligent series. Probably the best of its kind' British Fantasy Society

'A remarkable achievement. The essence of high fantasy' Locus

'Kay has delivered such a magnificent conclusion - I can't praise it enough. THE FIONAVAR TAPESTRY will be read and reread for many years to come' Fantasy Review

'Packed with action...'
