Winner of the Aurora Prize.
From the back cover: This is that rare, spellbinding novel in which myth comes alive and magic reaches out to touch us.
Tigana is the magical story of a beleaguered country struggling to be free. It is the tale of a people so cursed by the dark sorceries of the tyrant King Brandin that even the very name of their once beautiful home cannot be spoken or remembered.
But years after their homeland's devastation, a handful of men and women set in motion a dangerous crusade--to overthrow their conquerors and bring back to the world the lost brightness of an obliterated name: Tigana.
Against the magnificently realized back-ground of a world both sensuous and brutal, this masterful epic of a passionate people pursuing their dream is breathtaking in its vision, and changes forever the boundaries of fantasy fiction.

Thanks to somanybookso for introducing me to the writing of Guy Gavriel Kay. I was truly engrossed in the rich and descriptive storytelling. Now I will need to track down more books by this author :)

I will probably either pass this on to my brother to read or wild release it now.
