Fantasy. Fiction. HTML:New York Times-bestselling Tad Williams landmark epic fantasy saga of Osten Ard begins an exciting new cycle!
 
One of my favorite fantasy series. George R. R. Martin Groundbreaking. Patrick Rothfuss One of the great fantasy epics of all time. Christopher Paolini
 
Tad Williams introduced readers to the incredible fantasy world of Osten Ard in his internationally bestselling series Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn. The trilogy inspired a generation of modern fantasy writers, including George R.R. Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, and Christopher Paolini, and defined Tad Williams as one of the most important fantasy writers of our time.
 
BOOK THREE: TO GREEN ANGEL TOWER
 
The evil minions of the undead Sithi Storm King are beginning their final preparations for the kingdom-shattering culmination of their dark sorceries, drawing King Elias ever deeper into their nightmarish, spell-spun world.
 
As the Storm Kings power grows and the boundaries of time begin to blur, the loyal allies of Prince Josua struggle to rally their forces at the Stone of Farewell. There, too, Simon and the surviving members of the League of the Scroll have gathered for a desperate attempt to unravel mysteries from the forgotten past.
 
For if the League can reclaim these age-old secrets of magic long-buried beneath the dusts of time, they may be able to reveal to Josua and his army the only means of striking down the unslayable foe....
 
After the landmark Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn trilogy, the epic saga of Osten Ard continues with the brand-new novel, The Heart of What Was Lost. Then dont miss the upcoming trilogy, The Last King of Osten Ard, beginning with The Witchwood Crown!

Na al die jaren herlezen nog steeds mij tot tranen toe geroerd krijgen tijden wat eigenlijk een heel kleine scene is, dat kunnen slechts zeer weinig boeken. Deze serie is mijn all time favorite, een echte klassieker. Ik ga hem vast weer eens herlezen.

En ik moet echt even kwijt dat er juist op het einde een aantal juweeltjes van scenes zitten. Het moment dat Rachel de Draak en Simon elkaar weer ontmoeten is verreweg mijn favoriet. Rachel en ik zuchten dan echt samen, terwijl we onze tranen wegvegen "Uilskuiken". Ergens is dit voor mij het hoogtepunt van het boek, het ultieme thuiskom-moment voor Simon en voor Rachel. Zelfs als ik eraan denk schieten mij de tranen van geluk in de ogen.

Maar ook heel geweldig, ietsje daarvoor, is het gedeelte waarin Isgrimmnur ziet dat Isorn in de val van de Nornen trapt. De wanhoop van de hertog, zo voelbaar. Vreselijk gewoon. En al helemaal dat hij Isorn moet gaan missen. Niemand hoort zijn kind te verliezen en al helemaal niet Isgrimmnur. Ik hou van hem als van de meest geweldige opa ter wereld. Misschien wel omdat ik zelf nooit mijn opa's heb gekend. Isgrimmnur is mijn opa. ( )

And so with this final volume, Williams closes out the "trilogy" (read, Quartet) about Osten Ard. I gather that there is a next gen sequel coming out soon and I will look forward to it, in the meantime I'll read some other Williams, of which there appears to be plenty!

I don't really have any serious quibbles -- although, as with some other styles of genre writing (I'm thinking not just of Game of Thrones but of Jim Chee in the Navaho detective series, etc etc ) the lad, Simon, gets beaten up, pounded, tortured etc. to a degree that starts to go beyond, well, the believable or even . . . readable really. The bad guy gets what he has coming and the plot, complex and twisty to the end, unfolds satisfactorily. I was sorry about a couple of the deaths -- that's tricky -- people do have to die, yes, or it gets too "unreal" but gee whiz, this is fantasy, now real does it have to be? Tolkien only killed off Boromir, after all, and Frodo has his wounds, just sayin'.

Besides the gift of showing the teenaged characters maturing, Williams is also very very good at describing action -- whether it is climbing, fighting, foraging, or just taking a walk he always connects the reader very physically and directly to what the protagonist is experiencing. (for the series) ****1/2 ( )

A great story overall that should be a must-read for any true fan of fantasy fiction. I found this last installment in the series to be a bit drawn-out but there were still many great parts. I really felt connected to most of the characters by the end and a bit of me is sad to be leaving them behind.
Binabik was my favorite character through the series - definitely a Samwise to Simon's Frodo. If I had unlimited time I would gladly reread the series to see how everything comes together better, but unfortunately I have so many other stories awaiting me. Thanks Tad Williams for a great story and I'm looking forward to future readings from your novels. ( )

And death shall have no dominion.
Dead men naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone
They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion...


-Dylan Thomas
(from "And Death Shall Have No Dominion")
Tell all the truth but tell it slant,
Success in circuit lies,
Too bright for our infirm delight
The truth's superb surprise;

As lightning to the children eased
With explanation kind,
The truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man blind.


-Emily Dickinson

This series is dedicated to my mother,

Barbara Jean Evans,

who taught me to search for other worlds,

and to share the things I find in them.

This final volume, To Green Angel Tower,

in itself a little world of heartbreak and joy,

I dedicate to Nancy Deming-Williams,

with much, much love.

La desnudez desarbolada del Alto Thrithing le resultaba opresiva; Kwanitupul también le era ajena, pero la había frecuentado desde la infancia y sus ruinosos edificios y abundnates canales le recordaban, un poco al menos, a su hogar de los pantanos.
Tiamak found the empty treelessness of the High Thrithing oppressive.
