Reviews

Praise for Under Heaven

"Guy Gavriel Kay's Under Heaven isn't quite historical fiction, nor is it quite fantasy. It's set in a slightly reimagined Tang dynasty China, sometimes seems reminiscent of films like "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," and depicts the unimaginable consequences of a single generous gift. Most important of all, it is the novel you'll want for your summer vacation." --The Washington Post

"Guy Gavriel 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

"A magnificent epic, flawlessly crafted, that draws the reader in like a whirlwind and doesn't let go."--The Huffington Post

"Completely transporting...combines the best of historical and fantasy novels to create a great read where you don't know what could happen next."--Laura Miller, Salon Book Reviewer

"Guy Gavriel Kay, hunting in the twilight zone between fact and dream, has written a shimmering novel, a fantasia on T'ang China, the epitome of Chinese civilization...a beautiful, compulsive read."--Locus
