      Oh yes, I liked Tigana much better, and I actually really liked Lions as well, though I can not say that that was a fantasy book. Pseudo-history novel, which might classify as fantasy, but in that case it was so thinly veiled that I can not say it was a fantasy genre book. Anyway, I liked it whatever it was. I'm several years behind on my reading list, and so haven't read Last Light yet.
