T is for To Green Angel Tower . . . and Type O Negative (#AtoZChallenge)

The A to Z Challenge is a daily meme posting every day (except Sundays) in April. Check out the list of 1500+ participants below and follow along for 26 days (and 26 letters) of fun. The 2-letter code after each blog name may help narrow your choices - (BO) is Books, (WR) is Writing, (PH) is Photography . . . and, if you're concerned about those NSFW pages, (AC) is Adult Content.

For my theme, I'm going with a little author/title alliteration.

Today's challenge post is brought to you by the letter T, as in To Green Angel Tower by Tad Williams. The final book of the Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn trilogy has to be one of the most satisfying conclusions to a fantasy saga. Williams clearly knew exactly where he was going, and had a roadmap for how to get there. It's a heavy volume in every respect, but absolutely stunning in its scope and power. Instead of being one of those final volumes where you're just anxious to get past the filler and get to the end, the drama and the suspense is maintained throughout, keeping the journey just as important as the destination.

The musical accompaniment for the day comes to us courtesy of Type O Negative. What can I say about these guys that hasn't been said before? They're not exactly hook-laden, but there's something accessible about their music, making them a great introduction to the darker halls of industrial music.
