Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Tad Williams' landmark epic fantasy saga of Osten Ard begins an exciting new cycle!

Tad Williams introduced listeners to the incredible fantasy world of Osten Ard in his internationally best-selling 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 two: Stone of Farewell

It is a time of darkness, dread, and ultimate testing for the realm of Osten Ard, for the wild magic and terrifying minions of the undead Sithi ruler, Ineluki the Storm King, are spreading their seemingly undefeatable evil across the kingdom.

With the very land blighted by the power of Ineluki's wrath, the tattered remnants of a once-proud human army flee in search of a last sanctuary and rallying point - the Stone of Farewell, a place shrouded in mystery and ancient sorrow.

And even as Prince Josua seeks to rally his scattered forces, Simon and the surviving members of the League of the Scroll are desperately struggling to discover the truth behind an almost-forgotten legend, which will take them from the fallen citadels of humans to the secret heartland of the Sithi - where near-immortals must at last decide whether to ally with the race of men in a final war against those of their own blood.

    Every nonhuman character sounds pretty much the same. He does a good job with the rest though.

    "Slow progression of story. Excellent narration."

    The story progresses very little in this second book. The narration is very good so I stuck with it. Haven't decided if next book will be worth the time to listen

    Story
    "too wordy"

    Interesting story, but the plot was long and dry. Had to take many breaks to listen to all of it. I don't know if I can handle the last book.
