Praise for Guy Gavriel Kay 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 * Kay is a genius. I've read him all my life and am always inspired by his work * Brandon Sanderson, #1 New York Times bestselling author * 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, author of China * 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 peerless in plucking elements from history and using them to weave a wholly fantastical tale * The Miami Herald * The finest in his field * Tor.com * By making the familiar ever so slightly strange, GGK breathes new life into historical fantasy. Beautifully faceted, jewel-like scenes carry us beyond the doublets and daggers to create an emotionally charged, high-stakes world of love and hate, threat and reward * Daily Mail *
