‘A Brightness Long Ago’ Review: Historical Worldbuilding Meets Exceptional Storytelling

A Brightness Long Ago is the kind of novel that makes it easy for readers to form lasting bonds with the characters. We feel the fear of retribution for dark deeds done, the drama of rivalries that define the country, the intrigue of flying under the radar to benefit the greater good. The story is packed full of deeply wrought characters, history-defining events, and the every day battles that lead up to a war. It’s exceptional storytelling to be admired for its complexity and determination.

The book has more of a historical fiction sort of feel than full on fantasy, but it’s definitely a wonderful read. Pick up your copy today and dive into Guy Gavriel Kay’s compelling creation!
