Tad Williams introduced readers to the incredible fantasy world of Osten Ard in his internationally bestselling 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.
 
An 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.
 
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!
 
Praise for Osten Ard:
 
"Inspired me to write my own seven-book trilogy.... It??s one of my favorite fantasy series."
??George R. R. Martin, New York Times-bestselling author of A Game of Thrones
 
"Groundbreaking...changed how people thought of the genre, and paved the way for so much modern fantasy. Including mine."
??Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times-bestselling author of The Name of the Wind
 
"Tad Williams is a master storyteller, and the Osten Ard books are his masterpiece." ??Brandon Sanderson, New York Times-bestselling author of Mistborn

"Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn is one of the great fantasy epics of all time."
??Christopher Paol

This review is for the whole Memory, Sorrow and Thorn trilogy (or tetralogy, since the last book is sometimes divided in two books, being so long).

It was good, I appreciate what Williams has done here. This was one of the LoTR copycat trilogies in the 80s (and early 90s, in this case), targeting readers who loved LoTR and wanted more like that. What distinguishes this particular effort is that it's actually good. It's well-written and gives the reader a sense of a deep history behind the current situation of the fantasy world. It's a bit like LoTR (fight against a powerful dark lord, "elves" who are vanishing from the world, deep mythological past behind the story) but also different enough to have its own style and character.

People have criticized that it's too slow and long, and they have a point. I did not mind too much, because when a story is good and you can immerse yourself in it I don't mind giving it time and space, but occasionally I also felt it was a bit too slow and wordy. For me it was worth-reading, though. ( )

Incredible story telling. Looking forward to starting the last of the trilogy. ( )

Voor mij is het weer 5 sterren. Eigenlijk vanwege hetzelfde als wat ik bij deel 1 schreef en ook bij de volgende delen zal schrijven. Het verhaal blijft ook na vele malen herlezen steengoed en de karakters blijven geloofwaardig en interessant. ( )

El infernal poder de Ineluki, el Rey de la Tormenta y jefe sitha no muerto, destruye el reino de Osten Ard y siembra un Mal contra el que no parece haber defensa. Sólo cuando el reino esté en posesión de las tres espadas de gran poder mágico, recobrará la paz, pero el camino a recorrer para reunirlas está sembrado de una maligna brujería muy difícil de superar. De este modo, los maltrechos restos del anteriormente glorioso ejército de Osten Ard huyen en búsqueda de un último refugio y punto de reunión: la Roca del Adiós, lugar envuelto en misterios y pesares.

Still want to punch most of the characters, but I think this book was all about personal fragility, and some general buttheadedness...
I love the audible version of this, very well read. Now to book 3.... ( )

. . . Of all the many changing things

In dreary dancying past us whirled,

To the cracked tune that Chronos sings,

Words alone are certain good.

Where are now the warring kings,

Word be-mockers?—By the Rood,

Where are not the warring kings?

An idle word is now their glory,

By the stammering scholboy said,

Reading some entangled story:

The kings of the old time are dead;

The wandering earth herself may be

Only a sudden flaming word,

In clanging space a moment heard,

Troubling the endless reverie.
 

—William Butler Yeats
  (from The Song of the Happy Shepherd)

This series is dedicated to my mother, Barbara Jean Evans, who taught to me a deep affection for Tad Hall, the Hundred Aker Woods, the Shire, and many other hidden places and countries beyond the fields we know. She also induced in me a lifelong desire to make my own discoveries, and to share them with others. I wish to share these books. with her.

Even in the cave, where the crackling fire sent gray fingers of smoke up to the hole in the stony roof, and red light played across the wall carvings of twining serpents and tusked, staring-eyed beasts, the cold still gnawed at Simon's bones.
