Summary

With this rich, masterfully written extravaganza of myth and magic the internationally acclaimed author of the Fionavar trilogy has created an epic narrative that will change for ever the boundaries of fantasy fiction. Set n a beleaguered land caught in a web of tyranny, Tigana is the deeply moving story of a people struggling to be free. A people so cursed by the dark sorceries of the tyrant King Brandin that even the very name of their once beautiful land cannot be spoken or remembered. But not everyone has forgotten. A handful of men and women, driven by love, hope and pride, set in motion the dangerous quest for freedom: to overthrow their conquerors and bring back to the world the lost brightness of an obliterated name: Tigana.

This book actually got me into reading fantasy. It was listed in the top 100 fantasy novels of InQuest magazine, so I decided to buy it. A good choice it was. A wonderful book with an original storyline.
