Pelo Correio #25

Tanta vez que li críticas sobre este livro e nunca o comprei. Depois foi editado em português e também não foi dessa que o comprei. Esta semana andava a passear pela FNAC e fui aquelas bancas que eles têm com promoções e vi lá um único exemplar a metade do preço, desta vez não me escapou, agarrei-me a ele e vim toda contente embora.

Guy Gavriel Kay - TiganaTítulo: Tigana A Lâmina na Alma – Livro 1

Título Original: Tigana

Autor: Guy Gavriel Kay

Editora: Saída de Emergência

Páginas: 352

Género: Fantasy

Sinopse: Eight of the nine provinces of the Peninsula of the Palm, on a world with two moons, have fallen to the warrior sorcerers Brandin of Ygrath and Alberico of Barbadior.
Brandin’s younger son is slain in a battle with the principality of Tigana, which the grief-stricken sorcerer then destroys. After sweeping down and destroying the remnants of their army, burning their books and destroying their architecture and statuary, he makes it so that no one not born in that province can even hear its name.
Years later, a small band of survivors, led by Alessan, last prince of Tigana’s royal house, wages psychological warfare, planting seeds for the overthrow of the two tyrants. At the center of these activities are Devin, a gifted young singer; Catriana, a young woman pursued by suspicions of her family’s guilt; and Duke Sandre d’Astibar, a wily resistance leader thought dead.
Meanwhile, at Brandin’s court, Dianora, his favorite concubine and–unknown to anyone, another survivor of Tigana–struggles between her growing love for the often gentle tyrant and her desire for vengeance. Gradually the scene is set for both conquerors to destroy each other and free a land.

Também tenho outro livro deste autor, The Lions of Al-Rassan, que ainda não consegui ler, mas que tem boas críticas tal como este. Agora é esperar que consiga arranjar um tempinho para os ler.
