In the nighttime you prayed for light.
I think Kay is one of the most important writers in fantasy today and often overlooked. His writing is phenomenal.
I’ve seen his works being described as ‘historical fantasy’. That’s a lie. There’s nothing historical about them. They are heavily inspired by certain civilisations, but this isn’t a fantasy version of ‘historical fiction’. I just wanted to make that distinction as historical fiction fans might be disappointed if they jump into this one expecting a real setting.
The term I use when describing Kay to friends is ‘grown up fantasy’. There are fantastical elements within each of in his stories but Kay is a master at making the reader feel the emotions of his characters. And the books of his I’ve read so far are all very ‘human’.
his heart breaks again and again all the long night.
You stood by kin in this world because there was no one else to stand by, or who might ever stand by you. A rule of the northlands. You died if you were too much alone.
We like to believe we can know the moments we’ll remember of our own days and nights, but it isn’t really so. The future is an uncertain shape (in the dark) and men and women know that. What is less surely understood is that this is true of the past as well. What lingers, or comes back unsummoned, is not always what we would expect, or desire to keep with us.
As you can see, some of the above examples are beautiful. I always find myself taking lots of notes when reading Kay, more than any other author. Also, to my surprise, my new favourite curse is in this book and I’ve used it several times already. “Fuck that forever!”
If you want a deep and meaningful book with elements of fantasy set in a great world then Kay is your man and this book is great.
