The Bards of Bone Plain

The Bards of Bone Plain - Patricia A. McKillip I love this book beyond reason (to use my friend Jodi's description). I think it's my favorite McKillip and that's saying something. It makes me want to run around shouting because it fills me with such joy to finish such a wonderful story and with sadness because I have finished it.

Not to mention the fact that the two narrators for the audio version are also very very good. I think her books are very suited to audio because of the gorgeous language and complicated threads of story. The audio slows me down and makes me more aware of the poetry of the words and more able to follow all the twists and turns. If you read fantasy and you haven't read this one yet, run don't walk to the nearest copy.
