Fionavar Tapestry Omnibus Tpb Paperback – Oct. 10 1995
The trilogy is a grand homage to J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, but while the echoes of Tolkien's masterwork are very real, the books offer the wonderful taste of a new fantasy writer cutting his teeth at the foot of a master. Kay has a very real connection to Tolkien--as Christopher Tolkien's assistant, Kay was invaluable in helping to wrestle Tolkien's posthumous The Silmarillion into shape for publication. Kay is undoubtedly one of the Canadian masters of high fantasy, and The Fionavar Tapestry is one of his most enduring works. Readers, however, should also check out Kay's Tigana, A Song for Arbonne, The Lions of Al-Rassan, and The Sarantine Mosaic to truly experience a master at work. --Jeffrey Canton

I enjoyed this fantasy epic greatly. I found the main characters very believable as characters in high fantasy go. They are also fairly easy to identify with and are by nature very much like the normal people we know in the real world.
Here you will read of a realm of great magic, and of incredible things. You will also read tales of human strength and brilliance as well as weakness.
I loved it. I found the story very entertaining. I saw great artistic merit in this as well.
