Description


"When it comes to inventing new worlds, he's as skilled as J.R.R. Tolkien and Frank Herbert." -Christopher Paolini, bestselling author of Eragon.

Southmarch Castle is about to be caught between two implacable enemies, the ancient, immortal Qar and the insane god-king, the Autarch of Xis. Meanwhile, its two young defenders, Princess Briony and Prince Barrick, are both trapped far away from home and fighting for their lives.

And now, something is awakening underneath Southmarch Castle, something powerful and terrible that the world has not seen for thousands of years. Can Barrick and Briony, along with a tiny handful of allies, ordinary and extraordinary, find a way to save their world and prevent the rise of a terrible new age-an age of unending darkness?

Praise For…


“The plot springs from climax to climax as intrigues and secrets are unwound and revealed.” — Booklist

“His books are immersive, drawing the reader into his work, seducing them to not notice the time flying past them as they delve further into Williams’ imagination.” — Sacramento Book Review

"Perhaps the greatest thing I can say about Shadowheart is that through four long volumes of a story, Williams convinced me to care utterly for his characters and there’s a hole now in my life where they once lived. Few storytellers can do that. Williams does it with alarming regularity." — A Dribble of Ink

Shadowrise and Shadowheart are as good an ending to a fantasy saga as I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.” — Fantasy Book Critic

Shadowheart was an immensely satisfying final entry to the series…. Anyone who likes their fantasy ‘Tolkienesque’ will be hard-pressed to find any author writing today better than Tad Williams.” — SFSite

“All four volumes of Shadowmarch are must reads for any fan of high fantasy.” — BookLoons
