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-selling fantasy authors, from Patrick Rothfuss to George R. R. Martin to Christopher Paolini credit Tad with being the inspiration for their own series.Now, twenty-four years after the conclusion of Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn, Tad returns to his beloved universe and characters with The Witchwood Crown, the first novel in the long-awaited sequel trilogy, The Last King of Osten Ard.Thirty years 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-vanquished elvish foe—are stirring once again, preparing to reclaim the mortal-ruled lands that once were theirs....

- January 31, 2017Bookdragon SeanThis comes out not long after I finish my final year at university, so I think I'll be treating myself to an all day book binge on release day!The Witchwood Crown can't come soon enough.
- May 22, 2015AmberOMG, I can't wait for another Tad Williams trilogy!
- September 25, 2015LindaOnce again such an awesome story! The bad guys are never just bad, and really believe they are doing the right thing. The good guys are never just good, but can be a true pain in the ass.I love how this book tells both the story of Morgan, son of King Simon, and that of several of the Norns.I'm really sad the release date of this book has been postponed for a year.more
