The 2nd book in The Last King of Osten Ard series.

I have just purchased my copy and so far I am finding it an improvement on the first book although Simon's character is still annoying. It does look like Williams is atrempting to force the the pace a bit quicker with this one.

Williams is a great writer, though his pacing is often on the slow side. I'd recommend pretty much all of his major serieses to anyone with a bit of time on their hands lol.

I'm looking forward to dipping back into Osten Ard, as I read Memory Sorrow and Thorn over a decade ago, so it's got sonenostalgia for me.

I guess Williams is using the same strategy as the movie industry: hooking his older fans back in through the use of established, sentimental IPs. Not that there is anything wrong with that, provided there is a story worth telling.
