With The Dragonbone Chair, Tad Williams introduced readers to the incredible fantasy world of Osten Ard.

Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, and Christopher Paolini, and defined Tad Williams as one of the most important fantasy writers of our time.
This edition features a brand-new introduction from Tad Williams' editor as well as the original introduction from Williams himself!
BOOK ONE: THE DRAGONBONE CHAIR
A war fueled by the powers of dark sorcery is about to engulf the peaceful land of Osten Ard-for Prester John, the High King, lies dying. And with his death, the Storm King, the undead ruler of the elf-like Sithi, seizes the chance to regain his lost realm through a pact with the newly ascended king. Knowing the consequences of this bargain, the king's younger brother joins with a small, scattered group of scholars, the League of the Scroll, to confront the true danger threatening Osten Ard.
Simon, a kitchen boy from the royal castle unknowingly apprenticed to a member of this League, will be sent on a quest that offers the only hope of salvation, a deadly riddle concerning long-lost swords of power. Compelled by fate and perilous magics, he must leave the only home he's ever known and face enemies more terrifying than Osten Ard has ever seen, even as the land itself begins to die.
After the landmark Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn trilogy, the epic saga of Osten Ard continues with the brand-new novel, The Heart of What Was Lost. Then don't miss the upcoming trilogy, The Last King of Osten Ard, beginning with The Witchwood Crown!
Praise for Osten Ard:
"Inspired me to write my own seven-book trilogy.... It's one of my favorite fantasy series."

"Groundbreaking...changed how people thought of the genre, and paved the way for so much modern fantasy. Including mine."
-Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times-bestselling author of The Name of the Wind
"Tad Williams is a master storyteller, and the Osten Ard books are his masterpiece." -Brandon Sanderson, New York Times-bestselling author of Mistborn
"Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn is one of the great fantasy epics of all time."
-Christopher Paolini, New York Times-bestselling author of Eragon
