The Lions of Al-Rassan

The Lions of Al-Rassan - Guy Gavriel Kay I decided. I have to try reading all of Guy Gavriel Kay's books in this summer. I do not think I can read these kinds of books and not swept away by emotions, too mournful to do anything.

The Lions of Al-Rassan happens to kill my most favorite character.

One common feature in three books written by Kay that I have read so far ([b:Tigana|104089|Tigana|Guy Gavriel Kay|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348738842s/104089.jpg|1907200] and [b:A Song for Arbonne|104085|A Song for Arbonne|Guy Gavriel Kay|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1309212350s/104085.jpg|2498881]) is that his main characters almost always have a great passion for arts, for music and poetry. They dwell in melodies and words, yet at the same time also live in such a period full of turmoils and atrocities. There is a yearning for a better time, a better world where they can sing of peace and happiness, not of so much pain and so much sorrow. But such time never exists. And all they could is to live on.
