Stone of Farewell (Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn, #2)Stone of Farewell by Tad Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Still engaging if not completely original.  The butterfly meeting hall particularly stands out as a memorable scene.  It's interesting how focused Williams is on the novelty of a wolf as a mount/partner for one of his characters, while Eddings and Jordan had already taken this concept much further by the time these books were written - must've been a late 80s thang.  Given that the last book is 50% longer than the first two, I wish he had put more of the action and maybe a few more answers into this book, but fortunately I start the next one tomorrow!
