Praise for Children of Earth and Sky

“…Kay’s real genius at unveiling history as a large tapestry of individual ambitions, betrayals, loyalties and simple efforts to negotiate survival in a radically unstable world…compelling, sympathetic characters whose stories gradually weave together in ingenious ways.”—The Chicago Tribune
“Guy Gavriel Kay has a wonderful talent. He tells stories in an invented world that is so rich in historical echoes that I found myself smiling with pleasure as I heard the echoes, while engrossed in the story. Warmly recommended.”—Edward Rutherfurd, bestselling author of Sarum
[Kay’s] approach, which is to explore our shared humanity through a prism of fantasy and history, is unparalleled… weaves a heartwrenching, exquisitely rendered tale that speaks to every time and place.”—Huffpost Books
“…Kay is in masterful control of his material, and the prose is elegant. This is writing of the highest order. Very highly recommended.”—The Historical Novel Society
“A book of the year … about ordinary people not so different from you and me, Children of Earth and Sky is every inch the equal of the superlative Sarantine Mosiac.”—
