Overview

A group of adventurers searching for a cure for comatose children find themselves trapped in a sequence of virtual worlds, the only opponents of a conspiracy of the rich to live forever in a dream.

Few science fiction sagas have achieved the level of critical acclaim-and best-selling popularity-as Tad Williams's Otherland novels. A brilliant blend of science fiction, fantasy, and technothriller, it is a rich, multilayered epic of future possibilities.

    Excellent fantasy-science fiction

    The Grail Brotherhood control OTHERLAND, a place where reality is checked at the dimensional portal and dreams and nightmares can become real. Human children find the OTHERLAND an enticing landscape in which they never mentally return as they remain in a comatose state. <P>Led by the enigmatic Mr. Sellers, a horde of earthlings begins efforts to penetrate the veil. At the same time, the Grail Brotherhood begins the final ritual that will make them immortal. However, both plans fail as a former human servant Johnny Dread kills all but the leader of the Grail Brotherhood. Dread starts his own quest to become God with only a shaky alliance between the surviving Grail and Mr. Sellers' band standing in his way of success. <P> The fourth in Tad Williams¿ OTHERLAND series, SEA OF SILVER LIGHT, is a tremendous accomplishment that shows that the author is the leader of the science fiction fantasy world. The story line is loaded with action and filled with even more action as well as an intriguing look at the universe. The novel is not only superb, but Mr. Williams ties up his loose ends from the previous three stories. If you read any novel from the cross-genre realm, this is the one. <P>Harriet Klausner

    #4 Otherland

    The fourth in Tad Williams¿ OTHERLAND series shows that the author is one of the best science fiction & fantasy writers. The story has plenty of action and offers an intriguing look at the universe Mr. Williams has created. Williams ties up his loose ends from the previous three stories as well. This is the one for sure!

    Fantastic Series

    This is a fantastic conclusion to an amazing series. Tad Williams has written a futuristic, yet warm science fiction series. The breadth of his imagination and attention to detail rivals that of Clive Barker. This is a great series for avid sci-fi fans, as well as those just getting into the genre.

    Book #4 'A Must Read'

    If you have read the first three books in the series, then you wont be disappointed with 'Sea of Silver Light' Williams picked right up where he left off, with a quick refresher, to set the stage. All my questions were answered regarding the main characters, with a few suprisies mixed in. Definitely the book kept me interested throughout, and I was sorry to see the series end. Tad Williams deserves the highest accolades for a well written conclusion.

    Silver

    Silver slid from under him. "Not funny!" She purred, licking his cheek. "That's one of my weaknesses!!!" She protested, shoving him gently.

    I Also Recommend:

    Otherland should have had Otherending

    The final book in this series and I guess I had high expectations. While the first 90% was fabulous. Great nodes the characters went through, interesting plot and character twists and conclusions to some of the story lines. However, I found some of the ending conclusions a little too far fetched to be enjoyable. Strange, considering the pills of fantasy which had to be swallowed to get through the series in the first place. Nevertheless, stopping before the last few chapters would have been the best course of action. Rounding the story out with relationships starting and mostly happy tidy endings was discouraging. I would have preferred Dread getting more than he got, Orlando reverting to something more than his Thargor sim and Sam stepping up and growing more would have been a lot more satisfying. I must confess I was over Xabu and Renie by the time the third book even started and would like to forget the character of Renie's father all together, if possible. Would recommend as long as you stop before it gets crazy at the very end.
