Praise for Lord of Emperors

“Complex and richly textured…Kay’s characterization is matchless. The two books that comprise the Mosaic contain, in my mind, some of the finest writing to arise in the last decade in any genre.”—Vancouver Sun
“Guy Gavriel Kay has transformed his own array of literary elements into something quite remarkable…Closer to Tolstoy than Tolkien, in the Sarantine Mosaic, Kay plumbs his reworkings of history and finds the deeper truths at its heart.”—Locus
“A masterful performance…His most ambitious work yet…Powerfully written and compulsively readable.”—Maclean’s

“Gripping…A grandly realized and wonderful story.”—Denver Post

“The epitome of what a fantasy novel can be.”—SF Site

Lord of Emperors is wonderful. I never expect less from Guy Gavriel Kay.”—Robert Jordan
