As her journey continues, Sadie boards a ship guided by a pirate called Half Moon. He leads her through treacherous waters and tells her stories of how the map to Revelathia came to be.
 
With his help, Sadie finds the key to a treasure chest that contains treasures beyond jewels, but soon after she is swept away by fierce tides to a fairy-tale island with a mysterious angel. Once Sadie returns to the ship, she is reunited with the orphans who escaped the clutches of Princess Faegeria, but when they hit rough storms, she falls off, plunging for miles until she lands in…Muddlewoods. 
 
…Or at least she thinks it’s Muddlewoods. Some things seem a bit different, but some things haven’t changed at all. Soon enough, Sadie wants an escape from Muddlewoods, but also from her childhood and from her life. Relying on her willow tree once more for help, can Sadie outlast death and disappointment long enough to get to the Promised Land?

This book is intended for mature audiences and contains disturbing content that may cause the reader to delve into his or her own land of fantasy…just like Sadie.


Praise for The Sugarspear Chronicles:

“This book is to the literary world now what Wes Anderson films are in a world full of Magic Mikemovies. It will challenge you…But if you open your mind and stretch back to the bygone era of literary symbolism that was Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying, you will appreciate the shining jewel that is this book.” — A.D. Marrow, author of Chaos and Moonlight, Book One of the Order of the Nines series

“One of my favorite fantasy series.” —George R. R. Martin 
“Groundbreaking.” —Patrick Rothfuss 
“One of the great fantasy epics of all time.” —Christopher Paolini

New York Times-bestselling Tad Williams’ landmark epic fantasy saga of Osten Ard begins an exciting new cycle with THE WITCHWOOD CROWN, on sale now!
 
With The Dragonbone Chair, Tad Williams introduced readers to the incredible fantasy world of Osten Ard. His beloved, internationally bestselling series Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn inspired a generation of modern fantasy writers, including George R.R. 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!
