It took me literally months to finish this book. I suppose I wasn’t in the mood for it when I started this book, because I never got further than a few chapters and then let it lie on my bedside table ever since. This season I finally decided to tackle this book and found myself really enjoying it and looking forward to reading the next chapter in the evening before bedtime. The Stone of Farewell is the second book in a trilogy, following the events of The Dragonbone Chair. You should really read the first book before getting to this, because there is a continuous storyline.

This series is a classical fantasy story along the lines of Lord of the Rings. After all the “modern” fantasy I read in the last months it is a nice break. Real heroes and everything. Being the middle book of a trilogy it ended on quite a cliffhanger, so I might just have to get to the last book some time in the near future. I might try the audiobook version for that, though. I have a feeling that I could stick to it better as an audiobook.
