Review--Kingfisher

KingfisherKingfisher by Patricia A. McKillip
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kingfisher...or The Fisher King? If you combine elements of Le Morte de Arthur, the quest for the Holy Grail, Celtic mythology, the three-part goddess, the island of Avalon...and Top Chef...you get Kingfisher, a novel about knights who ride motorcycles and carry cell phones. It's also about love lost and found, and the most amazing All-You-Can-Eat Fish Fry ever.

Patricia A. McKillip is one of the top fantasy writers of our generation, bringing new luminosity to the English language. She layers her prose with depth and beauty, and reading her books is a treat.
