Great Book!

Although this book doesn't hold a candle to Kay's 'Lions of al-Rassan' it is still a very good book. Kay does a particularly good job creating a world that mirrors the history of European kingdoms and their struggles with the Norsemen of the age.

Let down...

I read "Under Heaven" by Kay and was simply amazed by the writing, characters, and setting... simply awed... could not buy another Kay book fast enough... "The Last Light of The Sun" reads in a very clunky, unpolished manner... shallow characters... does not seem like s...

    Worth a read, but read it twice?

    My copies of Kay¿s works are well-worn, well-read, and well-loved. 'The Last Light of the Sun' takes its place upon my shelf, but I do not feel as much affection for it as I do for his other works. The story is well told, the phrasing is flawless, and it is certainly enjoyable to read, but there is a certain flatness, a missing spark of magic that runs through most of his works. For lovers of Historical Fantasy, this is a must-read. For lovers of Kay¿s work, enjoy, but don¿t expect it to resonate as much as his other works.
