After King Orphanos’ brutal attack, Sadie Sugarspear heads back to the Grey Church to retrieve something that will help her find justice–her sword.

On the way, Sadie battles through demons and dragons accompanied by a new friend, a wolf named Blue. Eventually, she reaches the sword, but before she can kill King Orphanos, she comes across something that she didn’t expect to ever find again: her one true love, Alasdair Astigan. Overwhelmed by emotion, Sadie is willing to give up on her journey to stay with Alasdair.

When Alasdair is attacked and his life hangs in the balance, Sadie must go in search of the Three True Men, believing they can help save Alasdair and lead her on her way. But by the time she returns, Alasdair is gone—and standing by a pool of his blood is the Dark King, who once again has come for her soul.

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 Sadie Sugarspear Chronicles:

“This book is to the literary world now what Wes Anderson films are in a world full of Magic Mike movies. 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!

“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
Safety is not meant for Sadie: After the Forgotten Waters wash her away, she finds her way to shore, travels through a burnt forest, and finds refuge in a small cabin. That is, she finds refuge until the angry Queen of Ashthoreth, determined to destroy Sadie, drags her down through the Valley of Mud. With unexpected help from a trusted friend, Sadie manages to escape, but soon finds herself in front of yet another enemy: Serpythia.

In one final act of resistance, Stadie stabs the serpent. Before it perishes, though, it swallows her. She travels through Serpythia’s belly and finds an entire world inside, containing all those who were swallowed over the years and were never able to leave.

Is this Sadie’s final journey? Is this where her road comes to an end? Or is there something more to discover, something hidden within the living walls that now contain her?

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. 

This ebook contains the twenty-second and twenty-third novellas in Nicole Arlyn’s epic dark fantasy series, The Sugarspear Chronicles.
