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.

    "Got tired of it..."

    I forced myself to listen to the first book, but just could not with this one. It bounced around to the different groups to try to keep them even I guess but all it did was to help me lose interest.

    Story
    "Deep. Great performance."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Stone of Farewell to be better than the print version?

    It may have been easier to have the print version to lookup the parts I wanted to re-read because I didn't get it all the first time through some parts.


    What about Andrew Wincott’s performance did you like?

    Andrew Wincott's performance is stellar. Hard to go beyond that. He's awesome.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is deep and has many moving parts. Listening to this audio book required me to pay much closer attention. There were times the author switched voice and I had to go back and re-listen because I didn't catch the switch. That aside, its a good story with a great performance.

    "As good as I remember"

    As you will read in so many reviews, it's a slow pace book. It is however, a great story with great characters. If you have ever listened to lord of the rings and enjoyed that audio version, you will enjoy this ones as well. Just don't compare it to some of the newer books in this genre.

    "Rich, engaging, world building master"

    Tad Williams only peer is the master, Tolkien himself.
    That said, Tad Williams' books and book series (all large) differ from one another dramatically. Some being similar to Memory Sorrow and Thorn. Others being epic cyber space sci-fi. I've read most of his books. Memory Sorrow and Thorn remains my favorite. It's the series I read over and over. It's a perfect polished gem.

    "So incredible!"

    The second book in this amazing trilogy keeps building upon where The Dragonbone Chair left off.

    Again, Andrew Wincott does this amazing story justice with his powerful voice. Breathing new life into this epic adventure and will leave you scrambling for the next book.
