Awesome book. I'm not one to re-read books but I have read the trilogy (The Summer Tree, The Wandering Fire and The Darkest Road) twice and I'll read it again. You really feel for the charachters and the sacrifices they take. Once you start reading, you have to finish. Beautifully written.

I read this trilogy once a year, and every year without fail my heart is broken all over again, I am ensconced in a world all over again, my mood is eventually uplifted all over again. This is high fantasy at its greatest. Kay is a writer nonpareil in this genre and I would highly recommend this to anyone.

One of my favorite all-around novels! It is part of a series but it stands alone perfectly well. Each character is given equal weight and screen time. The world is well fleshed out and the story flows.
