BOOK THREE: TO GREEN ANGEL TOWER: PART I
 
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 King’s 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 don’t miss the upcoming trilogy, The Last King of Osten Ard, beginning with The Witchwood Crown!
 
Praise for Osten Ard:

“Groundbreaking...changed how people thought of the genre, and paved the way for so much modern fantasy. Including mine.”
—Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times-bestselling author of The Name of the Wind
 
“Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn is one of the great fantasy epics of all time.”
—Christopher Paolini, New York Times-bestselling author of Eragon

Williams begins to tie together all of the disparate threads from the first two books in the trilogy, as this story draws to its magnificent close. This series definitely counts among my all-time favorite high fantasies.

I recently finished this series, and was very impressed with Tad Williams and his writing abilities. The series moves at a rapid pace, and the characters are much more believable than in most other fantasy series. However, I also thought that the characters were developed more superficially than in other series. I also thought too much time was devoted to telling the stories of minor characters, at the expense of fleshing out Simon, Josua and Miriamele. Well worth a read for all this, but it does have some minor warts.

I have just finished reading this book and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. While the first book seemed to drag a bit, the second was better and this one far surpassed either! I couldn't put it down! I can't wait to read the last one! I am an avid reader of fantasy novels and I believe this book ranks in the top 5 for books I have read!

Five minutes ago, I finished this book. It truly was the best book I have ever read. By the end of the day I will own the complete trilogy. It has great story lines, each chapter makes you want to explore futher. I can just see myself riding along side Simon, and the rest of the cast sword in hand fasing evile wherever it may be. Anyone who just needs a little escape should try this book.
