High fantasy at its finest. Better than Tolkien, better than C.S. Lewis. Five young people are transported to a realm of magic, the first of all worlds, Fionavar, where their destiny is to help defeat the Evil One who is poised to break free of his long imprisionment and enslave all the worlds of creation.
Kaye writes with such elegance, style, grace and passion that you will be swept away along with the characters.
Excellent story. Characterizations are well thought out and story line is enjoyable. I discovered this author recently and am working my way through all his works.
The Fionavar tapestry is one of the best series that I've read in any genre! The summer tree starts slow, but once you really get in the story it is excellent. It is a series of 3.
