Having just finished The Briar King in one gulp, I can say with absolute assurance that the blurbs on the book jacket don't do justice to this splendid fantasy novel. Like Keyes' earlier works, The Blackgod/Waterborn and the Age of Unreason tetrology, The Briar King is a heady blend of legend and history, spiced up with great action, a poignant love story and a tart twist of humor.
