This trilogy is packed with cliches and the plot is awful!
Rape, effective human sacrifice (albeit voluntary suicide) to appease "the Gods" --
etc. Every Greek-Roman-Celtic etc. myth imaginable is woven into
the improbable and convoluted plot. Horrible! Save time and just
read Kay's later work (excellent!).

An excellent fantasy story of epic proportions.

The interweaving of myth and new story is very well done. Not everything turned out exactly as I may have wished, but most of the ending was satisfactory (except that I don't think the potential love interest between ___ and ____ at the end worked out completely - there really was not much to point toward it before). All in all, it was a good fantasy trilogy that I enjoyed reading.

This is a very interesting series; I don't think I would call it great literature, but still a good read for fantasy lovers..Everything is neatly tied togeter at the end.
