Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Fionavar Tapestry

The fionavar tapestry is a wonderful novel focusing on the adventures of 5 young people from earth who travel to the Land of Fionavar. Once there, they become very involved in the lives of the people of Fionavar and its situation. They each play an intrical part in the war between the Light and the Dark peoples of Fionavar, all being on the side of the Light against the evil god Rakouth Maugrim of the Dark. This was a wonderfully written story with an amazing and involving plot, with characters so real that you actually grow to care a great deal about all of them. I throughly enjoyed this book and I recommend it to anyone who is able to read! It was incredible!
