Publisher Comments:

In this mesmerizing sequel to The Dragonbone Chair, best-selling author Tad Williams, returns us to the troubled realms of humans, Quanuc trolls, and Sithi, as the dark magic and terrigying minions of the undead Sithi ruler, Ineluki the Storm King, spread their seemingly undefeatable evil across the realm of Osten Ard.

As the very land is 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. And the widely scattered surviving members of the League of the Scroll desperately struggle to fulfill missions which will take them from the fallen citadels of humans to the hidden mountain caves of the Qanuc...across storm-tormented waters to discover the truth behind an almost-forgotten legend...through a forest alive with dangers no human could hope to the secret heartland of the Sithi, where the near-immortals must at last decide whether to ally with the race of men in a final war against those of their own blood....

The plot thickens... This is one of those fantasy novels that you finish feeling that both a lot and very little has happened -- it's very detailed and kind of dense, and follows so many threads of the story, that the actual plot tends to progress a little slowly. I'm not complaining, really; I never had the feeling (as I have had with Robert Jordan's works) that Williams doesn't have an ending in mind, and I basically became helplessly engrossed in the lives of all the characters. I like the way that Simon is growing up; it pleases me that he's not a preternaturally great leader or warrior, as the young protagonists of these books often are. He has more in common with a character like Taran in Lloyd Alexander's Prydain Chronicles, who is brave and eventually grows to be a strong leader and fighter, but who more often than not messes up, or saves things in spite of his own shortcomings.
