Epic Fantasy Dessert and Appetizer: The Heart of What Was Lost

After more than twenty years, Tad Williams is returning to the world of Osten Ard, which he created in the bestselling Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn trilogy. The Last King of Osten Ard trilogy is on the way in June, beginning with The Witchwood Crown. The series continues the story of Simon Snowlock, thirty years after he was crowned king following the events of MSaT. To bridge this considerable time gap, Williams has written The Heart of What Was Lost to set the stage for what’s to come in The Witchwood Crown. While MSaT was a coming-of-age epic, The Heart of What Was Lost is a relatively intimate war story that depicts two worn-down armies fighting a brutal campaign where one side faces complete extinction. Taking place directly after the events of To Green Angel Tower, the benevolent Human/Sithi alliance has saved the world and scattered the armies of their enemies, the Norns. The novella follows Duke Isgrimnur as he leads an army of Northern Rimmersmen to pursue the last of the Norns in an invasion of their harsh, frozen homeland, culminating in a brutal siege of their capital city, Nakkiga.
