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.

Involving and enjoyable escapism!

Very sorry that I've now finished the series and have to say goodbye to everyone, but really enjoyed every aspect.

Fantastic that this last book kept up the twists and turns and never ran out of steam.

Highly recommend.

A (mostly) satisfying end to a genuine epic.

Like many, I wrestled with the initial chapters of this saga before falling headlong through the second half of book 1, all of 2 and 3, then the vast majority of this final volume. TGAT2 ties up the "trilogy" perfectly in terms of resolving the many characters' storylines and it manages to keep readers still guessing about the outcomes for most of the story. In my opinion, the only flaw is the climactic events in the tower feel like a slight letdown, with the roles of the Norm Queen and Sithi especially feeling a little bit stunted. Overall though, I have invested around 130 hours of listening to this series and do not begrudge any of it. Andrew Wincott's performance deserves much credit too; I thought I'd struggle to adjust to "Adam Archer" telling the story but his range and consistency of characterisation was fantastic and made the story work for me.

Worth it for the narration alone!

Great series! Three dimensional characters (by no means all human), well fleshed out; compelling life and death storyline; beautifully written, with a welcome touch of humour (albeit sometimes rather dark); AW’s range of voices, and interpretation of the prose and each individual protagonist, are nothing short of masterful. Several days’ enjoyable audible immersion in a detailed fantasy world superior to many others.

Loved this. Read it years ago. Audio book is superb

This was a brilliant narration of the book, I listened to the whole series having read it at least two or three times many years ago
The narrator brought the characters to life and made me enjoy it even more
