    the second book in the Fionavar Tapestry is not quite as impressive as the first, but hey it s still pretty damn good two things in particular stick out for me Sex i love how this novel places sexuality at the center of much of its magic, both implicitly and explicitly it is really refreshing and not corny i suppose that is the danger of including sex in fantasy if its not done right, it is a trashy sex scene or, even worse, an eye rolling tantric experience featuring new age nonsense tha the second book in the Fionavar Tapestry is not quite as impressive as the first, but hey it s still pretty damn good two things in particular stick out for me Sex i love how this novel places sexuality at the center of much of its magic, both implicitly and explicitly it is really refreshing and not corny i suppose that is the danger of including sex in fantasy if its not done right, it is a trashy sex scene or, even worse, an eye rolling tantric experience featuring new age nonsense that makes me gag sexuality in this novel is mysterious, natural, unnatural, a profound part of some magic, a threatening form in other kinds of magic, and just a regular part of life as well, no big deal it is taken seriously but it is also not turned into the whole point either it is an important part of the tapestry, so to speak it is a refreshingly adult perspective.Rape at the end of the last novel, a major character was captured, tormented, and raped repeatedly it was a horrifying sequence and also exceedingly, surprisingly well done i have actually never read its like before in a fantasy novel i was horrified while simultaneously impressed by the language, by the ability of the author to remove all traces of potential, repulsive sexiness , by the way the author showed how the raped character retained her strength while never shying away from how truly negating the experience was, in every way imaginable in the sequel, Jennifer does not just bounce back it is not an easy journey for her and she doesn t try to make the people around feel better as they try to comfort her in a way, reading about Jennifer took me to a sad place, as i recalled the couple friends i ve known who were assaulted sexually, and the struggles they lived with for so long after, and probably still live with to this day Jennifer s character and her struggles seemed so true, in particular her detachment and when she at last is able to make a faltering step, then another, and another, on the road to recovery, and when she s finally able to even experience sex again, to experience a connection to another person that is both emotional and physical it was like seeing something slowly coming through in an endless gray sky, some light at last appearing, after waiting for so long that s a trite image, i know, but that s how it felt to me i teared up a little bit reading that scene, and i think that s the first time tears have ever sprung to my eyes when reading something so basic as a love scene

    I ve been falling into and out of this book in almost precisely the same way I had in the first I love the short lyrical descriptions, I enjoy the mythic references, and I especially love how each character eventually gets woven into each of the underlying story structures There is a great deal to love in these books, and I ve enjoyed tracing much of the straight line continuation of style from this fantasy novel into the types that have enjoyed much fame and popularity in the eighties and nin I ve been falling into and out of this book in almost precisely the same way I had in the first I love the short lyrical descriptions, I enjoy the mythic references, and I especially love how each character eventually gets woven into each of the underlying story structures There is a great deal to love in these books, and I ve enjoyed tracing much of the straight line continuation of style from this fantasy novel into the types that have enjoyed much fame and popularity in the eighties and nineties.But I m going to be very honest with ya ll It just wasn t for me There s very beautiful language, assuming you love pastoral and glacial story progression, filled with enough ooohs and aaaahs to stun every romantic bone in your body This is what it is, after all A romance It s turning war into romance, rape into romance, summoning undead into romance, and all it s missing is Spenser s The Fairy Queen Oh, wait there s even some of that, and Le Morte d Arthur King Arthur and the Legends of the Round Table, too.I m not saying that sexuality is the key to the tale, although there is plenty of it that makes magic either powerful or weak or unimportant I m saying that this novel is all about the romantic frame of mind.If you like novels that gloss over the grimdark features of life, speeding through epic battles to focus on the epic heroics, or wallow in the myriad build ups that are there to push the fully engrossed reader into a paroxysm of legendary legends legending the legendixed legendonier, then you re in good hands.I just couldn t get into it I finished it, and I ll do the next in the trilogy because I m willful like that, but I just can t get all starry eyed with a build up of prophesied and lost babies, the idea that women are the true strength behind their heroic men, Why can t they be their own heroes, exactly , or the fact that we ve got not only a lantern hung on a specific character here view spoiler Arthur Pendragon hide spoiler , but an entire lighthouse hanging on his neck like an albatross.What do I mean Even Kay knows he s cribbing the legend so much that he doesn t even bother to submerge the meme into any of his characters He just brings him back through a universe spanning curse and forces him to replay both his deeds and his lost love story as penance, nearly fourth wall breaking borrowed pathos, and the Weaver s serendipity The fact that Jennifer Guinevere was fairly interesting doesn t spoil the fact that the rest of the novel was a slogfest for me I really wanted to like it a lotthan I did I tried liking it repeatedly as I was reading it, giving excuses to myself, tracing all the mythological elements and revelling in it, even trying to summon a truly heroic effort in my heart to like Paul, our resident mage, as he learned to walk the spaces between life and death, tickle fish, and beat back winter.I have no complaints about the mythos It s beautiful how Kay brings in so many cool elements, such as the basic connections between winter and death and summer and life, including the greater and lesser mysteries, and how it all interwove into the defeat of the Wolf If the novel had the speed and excitement of modern novels, I d have been rocking hard to this.As it was, it felt so old fashioned and pedestrian and mild and old hat that I wanted to cry and plead that I had just read this novel too late in my life, that I have already read too many great novels that explored all these themes too well, that the characters just weren t strong enough to make up for that fact, or that I am, in the end, sad that I m just an asshole.These are just my opinions, of course I might not really be an asshole I ll leave that to others to decide

    A good sequel, although not as good as the first book in the trilogy It suffers from a slight case of second book syndrome, there is not the same sense of wonder as in The Summer Tree, and I did not enjoy the introduction of the legendary characters at all.However, it s Guy Gavriel Kay It s still beautiful and highly enjoyable It s just not on the level it could be.


  5. Wanda Wanda says:

    What can I say about book two that won t be too spoiler y for book one I guess I can say that there isof the same The world of Fionavar is locked in an unnatural winter, caused of course by a Mage gone wrong What can the forces of good do against the very winds of winter King Arthur is the Eternal Warrior, needed for any possibly world ending war The five wayward Canadians who have found their way to Fionavar have also proven why they were selected by fate to make the transfer to that What can I say about book two that won t be too spoiler y for book one I guess I can say that there isof the same The world of Fionavar is locked in an unnatural winter, caused of course by a Mage gone wrong What can the forces of good do against the very winds of winter King Arthur is the Eternal Warrior, needed for any possibly world ending war The five wayward Canadians who have found their way to Fionavar have also proven why they were selected by fate to make the transfer to that world There is pain and there is happiness I can t quit reading finished The Wandering Fire last night and barely paused before starting The Darkest Road I think this series is going to become part of my nursing home library, those books that I intend to take with me to the nursing home when such a move becomes necessary


  6. Constantina Maud Constantina Maud says:

    Beautiful, beautiful prose.Sadly, though, among a few other things too, I couldn t get past those Arthurian legends thrown into the tolkienesque mix Would definitely have loved to see insteadof Kay s own abundant inspiration, like the Summer Tree and its Lord

    The Wandering Fire is the second book in Guy Gavriel Kay s Fionavar Tapestry trilogy I enjoyed this book, but a little less than I did the first book The story picks up several months after the first book left off, with view spoiler our main characters from Earth back home after Kim brought them back in the process of rescuing Jennifer At the beginning, they re trying to find a way back to Fionavar, among other things hide spoiler I noticed some improvements with the writing in this boo The Wandering Fire is the second book in Guy Gavriel Kay s Fionavar Tapestry trilogy I enjoyed this book, but a little less than I did the first book The story picks up several months after the first book left off, with view spoiler our main characters from Earth back home after Kim brought them back in the process of rescuing Jennifer At the beginning, they re trying to find a way back to Fionavar, among other things hide spoiler I noticed some improvements with the writing in this book In particular, I didn t notice any unexpected head hopping whereas that happened a lot in the first book.In this book, so many problems are solved by miraculous intervention or by the discovery of abilities that the characters themselves didn t really know they had I guess I should apply this complaint to the first book also, but it didn t seem like such a frequent plot device to me then I don t think it s done in a way that would bother everybody, but it became a bit too much for me I have a fewcomments along those lines, but they re a little less general so I ll need to put them behind spoiler tags view spoiler I don t think there s necessarily any one thing that frustrated me, but rather the accumulation of so many little things Every main character from Earth has some sort of previously unknown special identity, or latent special ability, or they develop some special connection with the gods on Fionavar Nearly every time there was a problem, one of the characters would suddenly discover some new latent ability or previously forgotten knowledge that could help Often the characters would join a mission with no idea how they could help, then of course they would be the one to pull a rabbit out of their hat in the nick of time The Arthurian stuff was a bit much too, at least when added on top of all the rest hide spoiler I still enjoyed reading it despite my complaints My complaints are mostly story based whereas I still really like most of the characters, so that helps A 3.5 star rating was an easy decision, but I had trouble deciding whether to round up or down on Goodreads Given my complaints I should probably round down, but I enjoyed it enough that I m going to round up I plan to finish out the trilogy to see how things end

    Okay, this story finally got me Fiction takes life and crystallizes it It boils down and simplifies, so that when real life is too overwhelming, I can remember what to filter out and what to hear I can remember that the pining lovers reunite, the little girl grows into wisdom, the white horses win The double edged part of that sword is that it s probably not true, it probably shouldn t be true But, sometimes stories don t need to be true in order to be somehow necessary, I guess I was in t Okay, this story finally got me Fiction takes life and crystallizes it It boils down and simplifies, so that when real life is too overwhelming, I can remember what to filter out and what to hear I can remember that the pining lovers reunite, the little girl grows into wisdom, the white horses win The double edged part of that sword is that it s probably not true, it probably shouldn t be true But, sometimes stories don t need to be true in order to be somehow necessary, I guess I was in the right mood for this book I was in the right craving of escape, craving of simplicity I know this story isn t all good guys winning all the time, but it still organizes good and evil and love and hate and family into something manageable.These are my random thoughts about the story view spoiler Jennifer has Satan s baby in this book That rules I totally love Satan s baby stories, I guess I had just watched the X Files where they do Rosemary s Baby, and it s officially one of my favorites I hadn t realized before that I really dig Satan s baby stories, but I do Maybe it s my Mia Farrow thing I still don t get what Satan s motivation was for choosing Jennifer, though, but maybe book 3 will clue me on that Satan s motivations are a big mystery to me in this story.Also, I m totally okay with the Camelot stuff, but I m not in love with it And, Kim has sex with Loren GROOOOOOOSSSSS That guy is like one million years old in my brain, and just cause she has white hair doesn t make her elderly I thought she and the king were going to have a thing, so I was SHOCKED when she went for the old dude Shocked hide spoiler So, I really love the story of the rake prince and the princess from the south I guess I love a rake, and a rake finding his girl, and all that I just like that story I like the idea of guys appearing careless to cover up their own passion and perfection It s a failing, but I m a sucker for it I also like that the couple likes each other and are basically nice to each other except when it makes sense for them not to be And it s nice that the story has come around to make the fighter girls the priestess and the princess respectable or endearing, rather than threatening or psycho like I felt they were in the last book.I m still feeling like the girls keep getting the short end of the stick, though view spoiler Like, Paul sacrifices himself, but then he gets to rise again and be a god man Kevin sacrifices himself, but, like, he dies of orgasm as he impregnates the head goddess, right Not too shabby of a way to go And both of those sacrifices save the world But, Jennifer gets taken and impregnated by Satan, which possibly curses the entire world or saves it, no one knows yet And Kim is just naturally a seer, which seems to be pretty much a hassle for her all around So, the guys seem to get a better deal, and their better deal seems to work out better for everyone generally I know I m looking too closely at it, but the girls are my models Why do our stories have to suckhide spoiler Ultimately, I am not totally comfortable with the typical fantasy format that assumes an enemy s physical characteristics mark the enemy as evil That just seems like propaganda that leads to race wars It is comforting to read, though, when real life is so opposite of that kind of simplicity I guess that s one of the reasons it s called fantasy


  9. Stephen Stephen says:

    5.0 stars This is an incredible book and part two of an incredible series Guy Gavriel Kay is one of the best writers working in any genre and his writing is both technically superb and deeply emotional This series should definitely be on the must read list of any fan of epic fantasy Highly recommended
