The Summer Tree is the first novel of Guy Gavriel Kay’s critically acclaimed fantasy trilogy, the Fionavar Tapestry. Five university students embark on a journey of self-discovery when they enter a realm of wizards and warriors, gods and mythical creatures—and good and evil …

And take them Loren Silvercloak did, for his need—the need of Fionavar and all the worlds—was great indeed.

And in a marvelous land of men and dwarves, of wizards and gods, five young people discovered who they were truly meant to be. For they are a long-awaited part of the pattern known as the Fionavar Tapestry, and only if they accepted their destiny would the armies of the Light stand any chance of surviving the wrath the Unraveller and his minions of darkness intend to unleash upon the world …

    " I read some half of this book. The prose was pretty good, but the story was not quite believable, what with the sudden immersion into this totally foreign world. I stopped reading it because I found the blatant paganism and frequent sexual situations too off-putting. "

    " Take this as 4.5 stars, if you will, because I did enjoy this book, though the language, at times, was a bit much. (And by that, I mean it was overly formal and flowery, not that there was a lot of swearing.) A fine story, though. We'll see how Book 2 goes. "
