Publisher's Summary

The sequel to one of the best loved fantasy epics of all time, the inspiration for Christopher Paolini and George R. R. Martin.

The Witchwood Crown continues the story of Simon, servant boy made king, and his queen, Miriamele, 30 years after the events of the concluding part of the Memory, Sorrow and Thorn trilogy. In To Green Angel Tower, the might of the Storm King was conquered by the League of the Scroll. Now new troubles have come to the kingdom of Osten Ard, a world where humans, Norns and the Sithi can live in peace for only a little time before war raises its head....

Wonderful

Wonderful story. Powerful narration. I cannot wait for the next book in the sequel. Time to listen to the initial trilogy again.

Accents

First time I ever heard the welsh accent sprinkled throughout the story regardless of race (human/nonhuman characters)。 Really wish he’d kept the accents specific to each group, it would have been more immersive. His regular narrative voice was great… just the character reading was off. (By the way I’m Welsh)

Eclipses MS&T

As much as I love the original series, I found this book to be so much more. I high recommend to old fans, new fans and general fantasy fans. Excellent.

A long awaited continuation of the Dragonbone Chair trilogy.

This has a slow beginning as we reacquaint ourselves with the characters but is an engrossing story, leaving me anxious to continue the tale. Well narrated.

Impeccable fantasy

Memory, Sorrow and Thorn was very good but The Last King of Osten Ard is great! Some of the best fantasy I’ve read!
A word of warning though Williams is taking his time finishing the last book and according to his website it will not be published this year. It’s going to be a tough wait after I’ve finished Empire of Grass...

good yarn

some interesting twists and reveals! enjoyable to listen along to though I did find myself drifting off at some points and had to rewind numerous times....but I am 6 books in so it becomes a bit like a background story at times.

What a performance! What a way to come back to Ost

This book is a fantastic example of the best writing Tad Williams has ever done, and the performance is truly out of this world. I immediately downloaded the sequel and will be listening to anything else performed by Andrew Wincott. A must-have if you enjoyed the Memory, Sorrow and Thorn series!

Good but slow to get going

I enjoyed this eventually, but nearly sent it back early on. I have listened to and enjoyed many audiobooks by Tad Williams, this isn’t quite as good as I’d hoped.

great story - shame about the narration

Loved the original series and am thoroughly enjoying this so far apart from the terrible Norn/Qanuk voices - they're seriously annoying and in places hard to make out what the characters are actually saying. Mind you I wasn't keen on the narration on the MST original trilogy either and this is the same bloke so it's my own fault. Cool story tho - looks like it's building up to be a real good 'un!

Perfectly read, with so many voices!

So many characters are brought to life here, with accents and mannerisms that leave you in doubt as to who is speaking.
A masterful performance.
