Product Details

Praise

“Tragic, stirring, romantic, meticulous, comic, rueful, worldly-wise, and written in the intimate, deceptively nonchalant voice of a storyteller offering up his great gift, All the Seas of the World is classic Kay, and to this reader, at least, there can be no higher praise.”—Michael Chabon

“A mosaic of captivating story lines within a mesmerizing narrative frame. . . . Kay constructs a rich world that easily draws readers in. Historical fantasy fans will be wowed.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“This is an immersive reading experience; readers will taste the dust in their mouths, see the high seas from the deck of a merchant ship, feel the bustle of the city market. What results is necessary sustenance for the starving reader. A masterpiece from a master of the craft.” – Booklist (starred review)

All the Seas of the World is as rich a tapestry as we’ve come to expect from Kay—perhaps one of the richest.” – Locus


Praise for Guy Gavriel Kay


“[Read] anything by Guy Gavriel Kay….His strengths are strong characters and fantastic set pieces.”—The New Yorker

“History and fantasy rarely come together as gracefully or readably as they do in the novels of Guy Gavriel Kay.”—The Washington Post Book World

“Kay is a genius. I’ve read him all my life and am always inspired by his work.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson

“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 

“Kay is peerless in plucking elements from history and using them to weave a wholly fantastical tale that feels like a translation of some freshly unearthed scroll from a time we have yet to discover.”—The Miami Herald
