What the community says about Under Heaven
- "While I'm not extremely familiar with Guy Gavriel Kay novels I have read a few of them. I'd say Under Heaven is the best one I've had the chance to read so far. I really enjoyed the setting of 8th century China and the story managed to keep my attention throughout."
- "I absolutely loved the rarely explored setting of Under Heaven. I learned so much about 8th Century China--the author does a wonderful job incorporating true history with fantastical elements. The story is epic but many of the characters have flaws and make mistakes that keep the novel as a whole quite grounded."
- "A decent novel, not one of his best though. Like all Kay's novels the reading flows well and the story generally progresses well. In this one however we feel like a casual observer, there is little tension building up and it seems as if Kay struggles with a culture a little bit too foreign for him. "
