    "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."

    "Novels like this are very difficult for me to understand. I wasn't very good at History in high school. Even then I decided I would give it a try and I love it, You have to read it and I am sure you will love it."

    "Mythology based in ancient china, great reviews"

    "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."

    "Author Guy Gavriel Kay is Canadian, living in Montreal, but the book is still very appealing for Americans. The book is set in ancient China which makes an interesting setting. It feels authentic, while telling an interesting story."

    "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. "

    "Under Heaven has a very good reputation among fans of fantasy fiction. I couldn't get through the first couple chapters. It's boring and difficult to relate to."
