Publisher's Summary

Two-time Aurora Award-winning author Guy Gavriel Kay has been nominated for the World Fantasy Award three times.

In the first book of his Fionavar Tapestry series, five college students meet a wizard who takes them to the heart of the first of all worlds - a place called Fionavar. The students soon discover that they have been pre-ordained as part of the pattern called the Fionavar Tapestry - and if they don't fulfill their destinies, the world will suffer devastating consequences.

My favorite trilogy.

I revisit this trilogy every few years. Love, honor, friendship, good versus evil. What more can you ask for?

Made me wish for a longer commute

Beautifully written and narrated, my hour long work commute transported me to Fionovar, and wished I never had to leave!

I can't decide

I am aware that Simon Vance is an experienced narrator, and his storytelling is fine. But. Voices. Doesn't work for me. Am I the only one? Or I am just spoiled by Steven Pacey, I don't know. I think I would like this book so much more with a different narrator.

great character based story, classic feel

classic feeling story that is quite character based, bit of a slow burn in the begining but as it goes on you become quite invested in the fates of the character's, looking forward to the next one.

Rekindled teenage memories.

After reading Lord of the Rings as a teenager and being totally encapsulated by it, I was thirsty for stories of the same ilk. The Summer Tree certainly more than achieved that. Loved this book as a teen. Now hearing it read brilliantly by Simon Vance the story comes alive once again. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended.
