"A masterful performance...His most ambitious work yet...Powerfully written and compulsively readable."--Maclean's

"Gripping...A grandly realized and wonderful story."--Denver Post

"The epitome of what a fantasy novel can be."--SF Site

"Lord of Emperors is wonderful. I never expect less from Guy Gavriel Kay."--Robert Jordan
