Following on from The Witchwood Crown, Empire of Grass: Book Two of The Last King of Osten Ard continues the story of one of the best loved fantasy epics of all time - Memory, Sorrow and Thorn, the inspiration for Christopher Paolini and George R. R. Martin.
Praise for Tad Williams
'One of my favourite fantasy series' - George R. R. Martin, author of A Game of Thrones
Ground-breaking . . . changed how people thought of the genre and paved the way for so much modern fantasy, including mine - Patrick Rothfuss, author of The Kingkiller Chronicle
One of the main reasons I started writing fantasy . . . Tad Williams' work is an essential part of any science fiction and fantasy library - Christopher Paolini, author of the Inheritance Cycle series
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.
