THE SUMMER TREE


Beneath the mountain, the evil one waits, chained, longing for release.

In the castle Brennin, the old king sleeps restlessly, fearing the shadow of the Summer Tree.  In the bedrooms and taverns of the High Kingdom, a young prince takes his pleasures - and quietly prepares for the war that will surely come.  In the woods the silvery lios alfar gather, hearing the howls of the wolves at night.

In a lakeside cottage, the Dreamer dreams of the five who will come from a world called Earth, the five who are Fionavar's last and only hope.

"A strongly individual book by a special new writer."

From audible.com:

Acclaimed author Guy Gavriel Kay has been honored with the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel (Ysabel) and the International Goliardos Award for his work in fantasy.

Eight of the nine Palm provinces of the Peninsula have been overcome by warrior sorcerers Brandin and Alberico. But the sorcerers don't know that a small band of survivors is plotting their removal. With tensions mounting, the sorcerers become increasingly at odds as each decides where his own path - and that of the land - should truly lie.

"Brilliant. Rich in intrigue and subtlety. A gracefully plotted story. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

THE WANDERING FIRE


Rakoth Maugrim sits in his mountain of ice, imprisoning Fionavar with the cold touch of eternal winter.

The kings and wizards of his own world have failed against him; how can five men and women of our world hope to succeed?  Even if one wears the glowing Baelrath on her finger, and can raise the very dead from their rest.  Even if one durvived the Summer Tree, and another carries the Horn of Pendaran Wood.  Even if one bears Rakoth Maugrim's own son...

"Kay... might well have created the mahor fantasy work of the '80s."
-CHARLES DE LINT

"Certain to become an important figure in the field."
-LOCUS
