Tigana is the internationally celebrated epic of a beleaguered country struggling to be free. It is the tale of a people so cursed by the dark sorceries of the tyrant king Brandin that even the very name of their once beautiful home cannot be spoken or remembered. But, years after their homeland's devastation, a handful of men and women set in motion a dangerous crusade--to overthrow their conquerors and bring back to the world the lost brightness of an obliterated name: Tigana.

Against the magnificently realized backdrop of a world both sensuous and brutal, this masterful novel of a passionate people pursuing their dream is breathtaking in its vision, and changes forever the boundaries of fantasy fiction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite books of all time! Guy Gavriel Kay is my favorite author, and this is one of my favorite books by him. It was this book that convinced my dad that he liked fantasy. If I had to make everyone read one book, Tigana might be it. This is a very cool exploration of cultural identity and family and friendship - and how those things all build the person you become.
