About the Author

Tad Williams Tad Williams grew up in Palo Alto, California. He didn't go off to college after high school, he was more interested in living on his own and supporting himself. Williams therefore began a long string of collectively bad part time jobs. He stacked tiles, made tacos, sold shoes, peddled mostrar mais insurance, collected loans not all at the same time and worked at other things in his free moments, such as writing, as well as, several years in a rock band, hosting a radio talk show, making commercial and uncommercial art, acting, and others DAW was the first to publish Williams, accepting "Tailchaser's Song," which became an big success. It never occurred to Williams that his books wold not sell and indeed they have not stopped selling since the beginning. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Not sure what to say about this one.
Probably my usual "enjoyable enough" comment.
Very long. I just hope the whole 4 book series is worth it.

Almost 5 stars, but went with 4.
This series is building nicely. Bit of a "who is the spy?" that only gets revealed in the last few of the 800 pages.
Little pieces slowly being revealed but still no real idea about how its all going to look moving forward.

Like the first 2 books, can't quite give it a 5 star rating, but all are well above 3 stars.
