Some 30 years ago Tad Williams started his Osten Ard series with The Dragonbone Chair Stone of Farewell and concluded it in 1993 with To Green Angel Tower I never expected him to return to this wonderful world and characters Now we have a long novella The Heart of what was Lost which picked up some threads directly after the first trilogy and this new doorstopper of a novel So yes dear newcomer you have to read all the books before this oneThose 30 years gone are also reflected in the setting the main characters got old mayhaps wiser Imagine a Mooncalf Simon Snowlock established as a renown king of some 50 years old shouting around at his drunkard grandson The Duke of Rimmersgard Isgrimnur kind of old back then is now about to die of age After some 100 pages the old gang has gathered Simon Miriamele Binabik Isgrimnur Tiamak and Eolair travel around in a state visit in their dominion which sounds as boring as it reads Heavily missing are the Sithi Jiriki and Aditu but that has its reasonsOn the antagonist side of the Norn that mischievous folks are gathering their strength again We get good insights into the culture heroic characters and traditions resembling a template for every roleplaying dark elfWilliams takes his good time to elaborate a tension arc lets the book start easy happy nice and only Simon s grandson Morgan seems to be a problem child with his drunkard friends one of them old Sir Porto from the preuel novella dangling around But immortal Norn ueen Utuk ku has awakened and prepares for war against the mortals of the realm She sent out elite warriors to get her the eponymous Witchwood Crown Also political unrest drives the southern part of the realmOnly the last third of the book takes up urgency again and develops speed Take your time and enjoy the slow cruising before taking the roller coaster ride Because that is what the last 100 pages will bring youI feared that I wouldn t be able to return to this beloved epic fantasy world because I changed myself in the last couple of years But Tad Williams has outdone himself to picked up the character changed them in time without loosing the atmosphere of the first books He transported me back again to Osten Ard without headaches Oh joyI recommend this to readers who need a different taste in their diet of dark gritty near pornish Fantasy worlds of GRRM Lawrence or Abercrombie who want to go for a lighter reading without loosing complex settings characters and plots

Tad Williams í 1 FREE READ FREE READ ß ASICSRUNNINGSHOESOUTLET.US í Tad Williams FREE READ ´ The Witchwood Crown New York Times bestselling Tad Williams’ ground breaking epic fantasy saga of Osten Ard begins an exciting new cycle • Volume One of The Last King of Osten ArdThe Dragonbone Chair the first volume of Memory Sorrow and Thorn was published in hardcover in October 1988 launching the series that was to become one of the seminal works of modern epic fantasy Many of today’s top s. Tad Williams is a master a true master of epic fantasy I can only think of perhaps a handful of novels that are this well written in the genre Firstly it s worth pointing out that I ve not read Tad Williams original trilogy but after this I feel like I ought to I want to see of this world I need to see of this world It s flawless and bleak and magical it s easily one of the best fantasy universes created Why Because it s vast and finely crafted resting on years of history and lore My lack of experience with the world of Osten Ard didn t affect my enjoyment of this book It s very friendly to new readers And that s really important for me fantasy is nothing without rich history to help cement the world building It acts as a platform for the characters to develop And I wasn t overwhelmed by it despite not reading the first three books The balance is just right There s no reason not to make this your next fantasy readCentral to the plot is the on going struggle between men and Norns The world of men is ruled by kind hearted King Simon who is utterly overwhelmed by his burdens He is surrounded by betrayal though he doesn t know it and his ancient enemies have returned to plague his kingdom He is beset by petty politics and frustrating courtiers His son is dead and his heir his grandson Prince Morgan is a useless drunkard And this is where there is the biggest room for growth Morgan has big things coming his way and he needs to step up because King Simon seems like a man ready to break I think Morgan is than he realises Despite the apparent evilness of the Norns and the maniacal will of their ueen I found myself uite invested in their side of the story They are not all bad They do not all want to rid the world of men they are forced to do so by their monarch whose thoughts leech into their brains and drive them forward into battle And this made the novel real interesting going forward into the rest of the series I m really intrigued to see how this will develop There s much to this immortal race I find them uite mysterious and as such their sections of the novel were some of the best It is a slow book and it will certainly appeal to readers who like careful fantasy By careful fantasy I mean books that take their time slowing letting the plot build up as the characters are revealed in good time And because of this I think it will directly appeal to readers of Robin Hobb Like Hobb Williams has not rushed but has laid the groundwork for something uite grand There are some big surprises in here and the next book is sure to take an interesting direction It s a book driven by cultural clashes and racial wars The world is stark and grey and I m not entirely sure who to root for It s highly compelling fantasy go read it You can connect with me on social media via My Linktree


Tad Williams í 1 FREE READ FREE READ ß ASICSRUNNINGSHOESOUTLET.US í Tad Williams FREE READ ´ The Witchwood Crown Have passed since the events of the earlier novels and the world has reached a critical turning point once again The realm is threatened by divisive forces even as old allies are lost and others are lured down darker paths Perhaps most terrifying of all the Norns the long vanuished elvish foe are stirring once again preparing to reclaim the mortal ruled lands that once were their. So good to be back in Osten ArdAround 30 years passed since The Dragonbone Chair was published and the same in the Saga Simon and Miri are now High King and ueen of the realm and also grandparents Tiamak settled in Hayholt Binabik and Sisi have a daughter of their own and a delicious future son in lawThe Norns are having their own story on par with the humans A lot has changed since the Battle of Nakkiga and after 30 years of peace the clouds are gathering again and whispers of a new war are becoming louder Evil gods long forgotten are rising and humans must prepare again for the worstUnlike the previous trilogy where mostly we follow the path of Simon and his friends here are a multitude of points of view including new very interesting characters apparently not related to the main thread in the beginning The worldbuilding is superb full of even richer details than in the first series The writing is as astonishing as ever the pace slow but not a moment boring things are getting complicated and convoluted with each pageThe end brings a complete surprise one which I did not expect and I was left counting the days till the next release If you plan to pick this one up I strongly suggest to start with the first trilogy Memory Sorrow and Thorn and read also the novella in between The Heart of What Was Lost You ll understand it way better because there are a lot of references not fully explained here from the previous seriesThat being said I think Tad Williams is one of the greatest worldbuilders and storytellers that I have had the pleasure to read so far If you love The Lord of the Rings you ll love this one too
