The Golden Horn book. From the temperate north to the sweltering heat of the Crusades, the Hound and the Falcon trilogy is a magnificent journey. Constantinople, .  . There is a beauty, an acknowledgement of the sublime, that swells through every page. Pausing and closing the book was like coming up for air, almost disorienting, definitely displeasing as I wanted nothing more than to keep reading.

I was worried at first because the book started out with a fraught quarrel, and I was afraid this was going to be angsty. I shouldn't have worried. This was a gripping story and I look forward to the next installment.

Normaly the 2nd of ether books or movies have a Hard time being just as good as the first but in this case it is better, we is moved into our history books as we enter the greatest city that was, and see it through our charecters eyes as it falls in all its horror. I enjoyed this book and recomend it highly.

The second book in a trilogy, The Golden Horn finds Alfred, elf and priest, in Byzantium during the Fourth Crusade and the sack of Constantinople, c. 1203 [the "Golden Horn" of the title -- named for its shape and its famed wealth]. Alfred begins to reconcile body and mind, and continues to grow as a person, while questioning his own and his Kinsmen's part in his religion. After reading The Isle of Glass, I found the Golden Horn something of a disappointment. Everything about it seemed rushed, unfinished. The writing is only a little better than average for a fantasy novel, and I craved more of the rich characterization and dialogue that I found in the first book. Still, entertaining enough.

I first read this in a volume collecting the whole trilogy, and it really is one story in three books though the first can work on its own. I think my favourite thing was the way the medieval characters had a worldview grounded in Christianity - this gave it an element of realism that many authors miss out on. Tarr manages to avoid the trap of putting anachronistic modern belief systems into her characters without necessarily condoning all aspects of medieval Christianity.
