The Heart of What Was Lost by Tad Williams

Author’s Note: As we prepare for the imminent release of The Witchwood Crown, we now look at The Heart of What Was Lost, Tad Williams’ “bridge” novella. This review is spoiler-free in the sense that I don’t spoil the novella. However, the premise of the novella itself necessarily spoils certain aspects of Memory, Sorrow and […]

Shadowmarch by Tad Williams

Shadowmarch by Tad Williams
3.75

This review’s been a long time coming. It’s almost a year to the day since a friend loaned me his copy of Shadowmarch and suggested I read it and, in a year where I’ve been averaging a book a week, it’s taken me almost a month to complete. It’s as if I’ve been avoiding the […]

Happy Hour in Hell by Tad Williams

Happy Hour in Hell sees angel Doloriel–AKA Bobby Dollar–make a welcome return, following on from his adventures in The Dirty Streets of Heaven. If you haven’t already pounded those pavements with Bobby, you’d best look away now to avoid any spoilers. Bobby’s as down on his luck as any man can be, even one with […]

The War of the Flowers by Tad Williams

The War of the Flowers by Tad Williams
4

Welcome to the first Classics Corner, where I’ll be reviewing fantasy novels from the mists of time. Well, not quite; more the books I’d missed out on reading when I’d given up on the genre between 1990 and 2004. If you’d like to make a comment or suggestion for a book to review (it doesn’t […]

To Green Angel Tower by Tad Williams

To Green Angel Tower by Tad Williams
4.5

To Green Angel Tower is literally a book of two halves. Following a hardback heavier than a house brick, the publishers made the decision to release the paperback version as two books, Siege and Storm, so as not to compromise on quality – a 1600 page novel would need pages as thin as tissue paper […]

Stone of Farewell by Tad Williams

Stone of Farewell by Tad Williams
4.25

After being overwhelmingly impressed with The Dragonbone Chair, I was a little reluctant to pick up its sequel, Stone of Farewell. Sequels can often fall into the trap of the law of diminishing returns; not quite as good as the first one, sometimes a huge disappointment. There are exceptions – the movie Empire Strikes Back […]

The Dragonbone Chair by Tad Williams

The Dragonbone Chair by Tad Williams

I picked up The Dragonbone Chair at a second-hand bookshop a few weeks ago, twenty years or so after I first journeyed to the land of Osten Ard. I recalled it as a pleasant enough voyage, but I’d only ever made it through the first two books of the Memory, Sorrow and Thorn trilogy before […]
