Epic storytelling at its very best, the OTHERLAND series gets better and better with each new volume.
Bestselling author Tad Williams broke new ground in 1996 with his wonderfully imaginative novel CITY OF GOLDEN SHADOW. The place is an incredibly complex and detailed virtual reality, home to the wildest dreams and darkest nightmares of its users and creators. The conspiracy threatens to sacrifice our Earth for the promise of this far more exclusive place. And, somehow, Otherland is claiming the Earth's most valuable source, its children.Then came RIVER OF BLUE FIRE: OTHERLAND BOOK 2, which firmly established the series as a landmark in imaginative fiction, challenging and thrilling even more readers.
Now, in MOUNTAIN OF BLACK GLASS: OTHERLAND BOOK 3, Tad Williams demonstrates ever greater virtuosity, entering ever more deeply into the conspiracy and the rich world of Otherland.
