Mountain of Black GlassM's Walls in the heart of Troy they know that their uest 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 foreverBut 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. I have no problem with multivolume doorstop epics; however Williams doesn't know where he's going and it shows Characters stumble aimlessly through worlds Williams kills off the metaphysical side of the story and substitutes imagery for substance

Well this book was really really good again I think we can solidly say that Tad Williams is now a very firm favourite author of mine I did feel that although I really love the different worlds within Otherland and seeing our team exploring them this one actually didn't give us that many answers in terms of the overall plot direction until right at the end I do think some of it could possibly have been cut to make it exciting but otherwise this is just of the same super world from WilliamsThis book particularly made me enjoy the characters of Orlando Fredricks and Martine Although each of these three I liked in the previous two books this book was the one where they all became excellent characters for me and seeing the way they each dealt with the Simulations they ended up in and the problems they were faced with was greatMartine's diary entries each one ended with Code Delphi are an excellent look into her character We get to see how a blind woman experiences the world of Otherland through static and information rather than sight and we also see how this 'ability' to sense the network helps her and the others out of tight spotsSeeing Orlando and Fredricks' relationship develop in this book was beautiful and I think that their friendship was taken to a whole new level I loved seeing Fredricks as he came to terms with understanding his own feelings and also decided to act for himself and take the lead when Orlando wasn't able to Together they make for a great duoI also really liked seeing the Gods getting involved in the story and the people outside the system like Long Joseph and the parents of Orlando and Fredricks All of them played a really interesting role in explaining of the world outside the network and also how if you're rich you can investigate properlyChristabel and Sellers remain favourites of mine and I worry about the two of them and the stuff they face I also like Olga and her on going uest to find out what is happening to her because I think she will become ever importantRenie and Xabbu are still firm favourites for me too and seeing them also developing as a pair was greatThe world building of this Network which our characters traverse is great and you never know uite where you'll end up The two worlds I most enjoyed seeing in this book were the ever expanding and never ending house Simulation and the Trojan War Simulation Both very interesting for vastly different reasons Basically I love all the characters here and this book kept me hooked even though it is a little on the long side I cannot wait to dive into book 4 the final one and really figure everything out 4s overall
