Overview

Mountain of Black Glass (Otherland Series #3) by Tad Williams

Third book in New York Times-bestselling author Tad Williams's cyberpunk fantasy series • “Tad Williams is the brightest and best of the fantasists.” ―Neil Gaiman, author of American Gods 

"The Grail Brotherhood has built the most powerful, sophisticated simulation network imaginable. At the same time, they have manipulated ad injured the minds of thousands of children."

This proclamation from the mysterious Mr. Sellars confirmed what Renie Sulaweyo had feared to be true when she first broke into the Otherland network in a desperate search for the cause of her brother Stephen's deathlike coma.

Now Renie, the Bushman !Xabbu, and their companions find themselves navigating a treacherous and ever-changing course―from a strangely unfinished land, ro a seemingly endless labyrinthine House―pursuing a sociopathic killer who has stolen one of their group.

To Renie's despair she is no closer to uncovering the secrets which could help save Stephen's life, and now it appears that something may be very wrong with the Otherland network itself.

As Paul Jonas, Orlando, Renie and the rest strive to reach Priam's Walls, in the heart of Troy, they know that their quest is running perilously short of time. For the Grail Brotherhood has finally set the date for the Ceremony when they will make their bid for the immortality, and thereby seal the fate of Earth's children forever.

But before Renie and her allies can hope to stop the Brotherhood, they must first solve the mysteries of Otherland itself, and confront its darkest secret―an enitity known only at the Other.

Keep your hunger for the journey sedated

I'm really puzzled as to why the third and fourth volumes in this series have been published to ebook format before the first and second volumes...I'd like to re-read this series (EXCELLENT story, well-written, btw, hence the 5 stars), but I'd really like to start at the beginning, not in the middle.

When I first picked up the first book in this four book series by Tad Williams I was a little confused at first about the overall direction this series would eventually take. After the first few chapters that confusion was replaced by curiousity.After completing 'City of Golden Shadow' I could not wait to delve into the next book in the series. The series has held my attention fully through three well written books and I can't wait to read the final book in the series. A true fan of the mixed genre of sci-fi and fantasy will enjoy this book as well as it's two predecessors.

The third installment in the Otherland series adds a mountain of information to the already complicated story. The main characters all continue to develop further into themselves, with some becoming a little too mushy towards each other. Dread continues to live up to his name, delighting in the pain and suffering he inflicts on others. While Rennie and Martine flip from heros to mindless victims several times throughout the book. Really enjoyed the visits in the recent similations. I think I enjoyed this version of Troy to the original poem. Some of the old characters fall off in this installment, not sure if some one will be back to finish the tale or not, or if it will make a huge difference either way. Can't wait to finish the last book to see where it all leads to.

Tad Williams has spawned an amazing series in Otherland. It incorperates many believable future societal possibilities. Not only does his strong use of detail amaze any reader, but Mr. Williams does a beautiful job at 'setting up' his next and final book of the series. The ending is very moving and powerful. It's a curveball that not many would suspect. A must read. p.s. Not only are his books good, but his personality is golden. I had a chance to meet Mr. Williams a few weeks ago and was delighted to find that he is one of the nicest individuals that I have come in contact with.
