Publisher's Summary

The Stone of Farewell: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!

Following a brutal civil war, Osten Ard has been crushed under the rule of the two villainous High Kings. A single hope remains: if the rebels can find the three swords of legend - Memory, Sorrow and Thorn - they might be able to bring the Storm King and evil King Elias down.

Once but a humble kitchen boy, Simon is now Simon Snowlock, dragonslayer and bearer of the mythical sword Thorn. But Simon is more alone than ever before: his friends have been imprisoned, and his liege lord, Prince Josua, has been exiled. And the Storm King may also be in possession of one of the swords....

A single chance remains: if Simon can deliver Thorn to Joshua and lead his followers to the Stone of Farewell, the rebels may be able to muster the forces necessary to rise up against Elias and the Storm King. But no one knows where the Stone of Farewell is. Or, indeed, what it is...

In The Stone of Farewell, Tad Williams sets his characters against impossible odds - and proves that the beloved, internationally best-selling Dragonbone Chair was no fluke but one of the greatest fantasy novels of all time.

Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

The recording itself is a disappointment

Background music while the reading is being done? seriously? and then not even softly, but loud enough to be distracting!

i am 5 chapters into this book, and although I like the series so far, i am comtemplating to rather get the ebook than listen to the distracting audiobook.
