And what were these figures who approached him across the shambles of the courtyard, moving as gracefully over the icy stones as blowing thistle down? His heart raced. At first, as he saw their beautiful, cold faces and pale hair, Hengfisk thought them angels. Then, as he saw the fell light in their black eyes, and their smiles, he turned, stumbling, and tried to run. The Norns caught him effortlessly, then carried him back with them into the depths of the desolated castle, beneath the shadowed, ice-mantled towers and the ceaselessly flickering lights.

In the sequel to The Dragonbone Chair, Williams continues the story of our hero, Simon Snowlock ( I do like the Sithi names for things). Having bested the dragon using the sword Thorn, Simon is now at a crossroads in his life. He isn't the scullion in Green Angel Tower, but he isn't quite the hero. But he is still a mooncalf (whatever that may be). Our fractured story now fractures even more as we follow many characters in this book as they fight against the growing darkness and attempt to mount a last resistance at the Stone of Farewell.

Geloe, the wise woman, tells them all at different times that they must go to the Stone of Farewell. And so we follow Josua and his company as they leave the ruins of his castle. We follow Rachel the Dragon back at the castle as it begins to change and as she grows more aware of what is and isn't going on. We follow Eolair and Maegwin as they assemble all that remain of the Herynstir people and look for new allies.We follow a couple more minor characters as their plot lines converge. And most importantly, we follow Simon, Binabik, Sludig, and Qantaqa as they follow Geloe's advice and seek the Stone of Farewell. The Simon parts are some of the best parts of the book and will let you learn more about the Sithi.

This is a great continuation of the story and it reads very quickly. There is a feeling of the darkness growing and that hope is diminishing throughout the book. It almost feels as if it is possible that the hero may not win. But we shall see in the final book.

I'm a fan of epic fantasy. I grew up on brooks, goodkind (before he got preachy), jordan, rawn, etc. as an adult, I've despaired of finding authors to draw me into their worlds. Novels might be fun but they turn out to be the equivalent of chinese take-out. It was good, but it didn't stick, and i don't remember if i had the kung pao or the gen tsao's. There are some excellent books underway, and I eagerly await the conclusions to several series (butcher, sanderson, rothfuss)

The Dragonbone Chair and the rest of the series are NOT chinese food. There is more than enough to keep a speed reader occupied, and the characters and drama stay with me when i have to return to the real world. There's meat. There are hints to things not spelled out, so you have to use your imagination and strain to see around the corners for answers. Bits of humor, well placed. Great descriptions. Strong characters. Loved it!

Book 2 has a lot of cool elvish stuff in it, and finding out about their history and lore was a lot of fun. The villains also become clearer in this book. While book one has many characters on many disparate threads, they start to come together in book 2 as they meet to consolidate their power base and prepare to strike back.

As for the series as a whole:

It's a cool high fantasy novel with a rich setting and a lot of lore. There are a lot of twists on the original races so it's not boring, and there's a lot of politicking going on, if you're into that kind of thing. The religions of the setting were very cool too.

This book is VERY long, and you're going to need to read all 4 of them for a good payoff. It starts very slow, but when you get to the end, the payoff is very worth it. I was so happy with how this series ended!

The main character is kind of ignorant and dumb in the first book. but part of his journey is how he overcomes that and transforms into someone heroic, so he gets better. There is a core of side characters that are generally very lovable, so that helps too, though in the first book it can be a little difficult to keep track of where they all are at first, it becomes clear later. I especially liked Binabik, Isgrimnur, Josua, Eolair and Maegwen.

This is the second series I've read and loved by Tad Williams, the first being the Otherland Series. If you liked this and you're also up for a long, slow-starting, Cyberpunk story with mad 90s virtual reality universe, a diverse main cast, and an absolutely fantastic ending, you might want to give that a shot too.

I'm planning to try Williams' Shadowmarch series next time I get some serious downtime.

I read in the Guardian the other day that George R.R. Martin is considered “the reigning laureate of fantasy.” Well, I certainly beg to differ.

Marin has himself admitted that he was inspired to set out on the Song of Ice and Fire by reading Williams’ Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn, but I’m sure he will not be as quick to admit that he has yet to reach the level of fantasy fiction that Williams has produced.

The second installment in Williams’ trilogy does not start off slowly (that was all taken care of in the first installment), but keeps the various very well-knit threads moving along at a near perfect pace and pacing.

Comparing Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn to Ice and Fire I find Williams’ story more captivating, better described and paced, and less involved with long (and for me extraneous and somewhat indulgent) description of meals.

Simon, though still childish at times, is growing up and is much easier to sympathize and empathize with in the second book than the first. That said, he no longer carries the story on his own, far from it. Other strands are growing quite as vivid and vital.

If you like Ice and Fire, do yourself a huge favor, and read Williams’ trilogy as well. You will not regret it.
