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.

    "middle book of trilogy is middle..."

    While still entertaining, this one droned on a bit in parts. Still an awesome story, starting the 3rd and hoping for some good resolution!

    "A good sequel to Book 1"

    This is a good sequel to book one, but things grow a little muddy. I don't think it had the drive of the first book, but it leads us well enough toward the third. Worth the buy.

    "Story seems ok but drags"

    I know the story is suppose to be epic, but seriously does every thought, every rock, and even the wind need three sentences if not more "to describe it?" This book easily could have been cut down by 100 pages without 'everything' being overly described. At this point I'm going to the last book just to say I've "read it."

    "Terrific"

    While some have said that the book meanders, and muddies the spoken performance, I find the voice acting impeccable, and the story enthralling. Multiple times I endured goosebumps upon realizing a certain part was coming up...

    Story
    "Side plots keeps it interesting"
    Any additional comments?

    Andrew Wincott does a masterful job separating characters and making them unique. Though the story has over 6 subplots they can stand on their own merits and make me wonder how they will tie back into Simon's story. Cannot wait to find out what is in the bag.
