I'm a long time Tad Williams fan, ever since I was given Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn books 1 & 2 as gifts. Ever since, I eagerly await his next book, his next series. I listened to the Memory, Sorrow, & Thorn audiobooks before starting this - and thoroughly enjoyed the performance! When I saw the short length of this audiobook, with Williams' next book's scheduled release so close on its literary heels, I knew it was primarily meant to bridge a gap between the two series, introducing new information that would be pertinent for the series to come... But I expefteed it to be MORE of a stand alone story and not so disappointing in its 'bridge-iness'. I'm still looking forward to this new visit to the world of Osten Ard, so I couldn't bronv myself to give an overall rating below 4 stars...but I surely hope the new series is more worthy of the journey than this.

Would you listen to The Heart of What Was Lost again? Why?
I downloaded this book yesterday, and couldn't stop listening until it was done. Andrew Wincott is absolutely perfect as the narrator for such an involved book.
What other book might you compare The Heart of What Was Lost to and why?
This book is not like any other book, other than a Tad Williams book - it is a unique, dark fantasy, gripping and compelling.
Which character – as performed by Andrew Wincott – was your favorite?
Duke Isengrimnur, followed closely by both Porto and Endri, and Viyeki, They are all portrayed so differently, but very much as they should be.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Many - Viyeki's struggle as whole was quite powerful, and I was deeply moved by it. I was left wondering about his story--will it continue?
Any additional comments?
This is quite an involved story. I'm going to listen to it again, and read along with the hard copy to see what I may have missed.
