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 in 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.
