About 1/2 done with second book in this series and I am so impressed with the story. Set in the future and relates to a modern VR internet. Great reading.

I've really liked all of Tad Williams' books. I just finished his most recent (I think), War of the Flowers

Shadowmarch.com has the first 5 chapters of his next series coming out. Read it and pre-ordered the book immediately, and now I must wait until Nov. 2 to finish it. Amazing story so far. In just the few chapters on the website I am extremely intrigued with the fantasy world he is creating in this series.

Otherland, actually. Just finished the fourth & last book in the series yesterday, as a matter of fact. Very creative writing, vivid characters. A good mix of straight-forward writing technique with a bit of foreshadowing and metaphore, and plenty of tension. I am sad that it's over and will miss all the characters.....

I really liked this series, though when I gave the first book to my dad and he quit reading it because it took forever to start the story, I realized that the whole first book was to set up the next three. In retrospect, it seems like the first 500 pages of the Sword of Shanarra.

I really did enjoy the characters though. you really can't not like Jonas, and Dread's pretty cool even though he's insane... He reminds me a lot of Kefka, only with Dread you actually get to see his justification of delighting in slaughter... He thinks that he is the hero. There used to be a poster called TheEvilHero on this site that had a quote in his/her signature stating something to the effect that every villain is a hero in his own eyes. I know that the most interesting villains always are.

Very good series, I liked how the story evolved. !Xabbu was hilarious to picture while reading, this serious man trying to learn a new culture but people just don't seem to take him seriously.
