Stunningly good

Patricia McKillip's trilogy is one of the best fantasy novels/series I've ever read. But listening to it on audio is even better. It is a literary quality series on par with the Earthsea Trilogy by Leguin, Tolkein, or the works of Guy Gavriel Kay. If you like these writers, you'll love this book. Start with Riddlemaster of Hed, then Heir of Sea and Fire, and finish with Harpist in the Wind. It is an incredible writing achievement. Enjoy.
