Publisher's Summary

In order for the Storm King to cement his power over Osten Ard, he must find and defeat the rebel forces massing against him. But the rebels, led by the exiled Prince Josua, have rallied at the Stone of Farewell and are ready to fight the Storm King with every power they can muster. The key to their victory lies in finding the third sword of legend, Memory - but the sword has been lost for ages.
Lost, that is, until Simon Snowlock realises that he knows exactly where the sword is and how to recover it. The only problem: An undead army, bolstered by powerful magic, lies between him and his destination. It will take every ounce of Simon's courage and intelligence to journey to and then recover the great sword, Memory, and bring peace to Osten Ard.
If Simon's quest is to have any hope, Josua must move against the Storm King himself - a journey that will take him across endless seas, through ancient forests and into the stronghold of the Storm King himself.
The finale to Tad Williams' breathtaking, beloved series Memory, Sorrow and Thorn.

The End of a Long and Winding Road.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, and I have since I read this series thirty years ago. A great set of believable characters in a brilliantly described world.


What other book might you compare To Green Angel Tower, Part 2 to, and why?

Tolkien and George RR Martin. This is a huge compliment and also a slight dig at the books. I really enjoyed these book but they are overlong and the grand finale could have had a better pay off in my opinion.


What does Andrew Wincott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A truly superb reading. Definitely up there with the Game of Thrones books and Ken Follett's Century cycle. These are epic books with huge casts and Mr Wincott makes each voice unique. I hope he won prizes for this narration, he deserved to!


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I'm a 48 year old burly bruiser and I cried pretty much for the whole last hour. My gripes about the lack of a hugely exciting ending aside, I had invested over 120 listening hours to these books! I was embroiled in the lives of the characters. It was very cathartic!


Any additional comments?

A great listen, like the latter Game of Thrones books, there is a little too much eye for the detail but that gripe aside, a great fantasy quartet for fans of the genre.

A Masterful Finale

A grand, sweeping and gut-wrenching finale to a masterwork of fantasy. Long, yet immensely rewarding. When all the disparate threads come together, it is, quite simply, a masterpiece.
