Publisher's Summary

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 3: To Green Angel Tower

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!

Kings and Queens, trolls and kitchen boys

Love love love Tad Williams! Poor Simon...being a Moon-calf is hard! Loved the characters from this series. I could not stop at a handful so rather than take up too much space I'll just say really hated Pyrates. Elias and Cadrach should have known better. The rest stole my heart...each and every one flaws and all.

A bit exhausting, but better than most

Any additional comments?

I will say I am so split on this series that it is another exhaustion. The story is well thought out and the performance excellent. However, the story pounds on your head with depression and hopelessness, coupled with the overall length of the series and book, that you just feel that you should consult a therapist. It really is too much. I might suggest the first book to anyone, but I would suggest only those with bright lives and brighter personas buying anymore of the series. It really is too much. As a warning to others, I would have rated the story 2 stars, but it is very well put together and unworthy of such a harsh judgement. I will give Mr. Williams another shot with other stories, but I suspect that this style of pathetic life and depression is more his story-telling style, than this specific story.

Great read, found myself skimming a bit though.

This was a great series. I did enjoy it but I did find that I find myself listening at 2.0x fur parts of it. the was to much back story in my opinion on less that relevant characters. How did that quote go? "Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly". All that being said however it was worth the purchase and passed many hours that would have otherwise been dull.

Great story with very detailed writing.
The ending surprises and delights. The narrator is awesome but does mispronounce some words.

Amazing series

Great author, great narrator and great story. What more could you want?This is my second time reading through the series. I wanted to prep for the more recent books and knew I wouldn't regret it. I enjoyed it more than when I read it as a kid. Outstanding.

The Best

Better than Star Wars Saga, Tolken's The Hobbit and my Favorite Lord of the Rings. The Dragon Bone Chair was given to me by a co-worker when I was working on a fishing boat in Alaska back in 94' along with the other two books, well let me tell you when I wasn't working I was reading the stories . I loved them so much that when I got back to Seattle I ordered the hard cover copies to have in my library, and I've read them so many times over the years the bindings are coming apart. Now I drive a truck for a living and Andrew Wincott has made the miles roll by.
reading them was a joy, but listening to to them brought tears to my eyes.
