The Dragonbone Chair

The Dragonbone Chair

Memory, Sorrow and Thorn #1

Tad Williams


5 Stars


A young scullion boy, who is a hopeless clutz, ends up becoming embroiled in a plot by an elder race to supplant the humans.

Rereading this so soon after finishing Williams Shadowplay series, it is real easy to compare. This series holds up much better than the Shadowplay series. Simon, the main character, is likeable. Yes, he has his annoying traits, but he is growing into someone the reader can cheer for. So many of the same ideas in this series are taken to greater depths, but you can see where Williams is starting to repeat himself.

I was fearful that this wouldn’t hold up to the memories, but just like the Otherland series, this was even better the second time around.
