The stunning second novel in Tad Williams' classic fantasy series, Memory, Sorrow and Thorn, set in the fantasy world of Osten Ard.
Following a brutal civil war, Osten Ard has been crushed under the rule of the two villainous High Kings. A single hope remains: if the rebels can find the three swords of legend - Memory, Sorrow and Thorn - they might be able to bring the Storm King and evil King Elias down.
Once but a humble kitchen boy, Simon is now Simon Snowlock, dragonslayer and bearer of the mythical sword Thorn. But Simon is more alone than ever before: his friends have been imprisoned, and his liege lord, Prince Joshua, has been exiled. And the Storm King may also be in possession of one of the swords....
A single chance remains: if Simon can deliver Thorn to Joshua and lead his followers to the Stone of Farewell, the rebels may be able to muster the forces necessary to rise up against Elias and the Storm King. But no one knows where the Stone of Farewell is. Or, indeed, what it is....

Good story but hard to follow
The book has chapters but the story jumps within the chapter from one place with its characters to another which I found sometimes confusing when listening. Despite the best efforts of the reader, I suddenly found I didn't know what was happening and had to jump back. It was worth it though.
For the most part the story was enjoyable. Once in a while there are long stories told, which were so long that it was a bit boring - I wondered if they were relevant and if I should be paying more attention because they were giving information pertinent to the plot later in the story. I still don't have an answer to that question. In the relatively long book that didn't happen too often!

Great recording of a compelling story
