Der letzte König von Osten Ard (Nr. 1)
The stunning successor to one of the greatest fantasy trilogies of all time . . . Thirty years ago Ineluki, the Storm King, was destroyed and his armies scattered. Osten Ard has been at peace ever since, ruled by kitchen-boy-made-king Simon Snowlock, and Miriamele, King Elias' only child. But now Simon's dreams have deserted him, old allies are dying and betrayal and assassination threaten.
Meanwhile in a mountain fortress in the frozen North, Ineluki's ally, the Norn Queen, wakes from her decades-long sleep and tells her followers that she will sleep no more. Humanity must be destroyed. Her sorcerers will bring a demon back from death, her warriors will scour the world for living dragon's blood . . . And the greatest artefact of all, the Witchwood Crown, will finally be hers. Praise for The Witchwood Crown 'This is flawless epic fantasy. . . Williams' grand-scale storytelling mastery is on full display here. Not just utterly readable - an instant fantasy classic'
Tad Williams is a California-based fantasy superstar. His genre-creating (and genre-busting) books have sold tens of millions worldwide, in twenty-five languages. His considerable output of epic fantasy and science fiction book-series, stories of all kinds, urban fantasy novels, comics, scripts, etc., have strongly influenced a generation of writers: the Otherland epic now plays as an MMO on steam.com. Tad is currently immersed in the creation of The Last King of Osten Ard , planned as a trilogy with two intermediary novels. He, his family and his animals live in the Santa Cruz mountains in a suitably strange and beautiful house. @tadwilliams @mrstad
