Publisher's Summary

A year ago, the March Kingdoms were at peace, and the Eddon family held the throne. Now the family has been shattered. King Olin Eddon is a prisoner in a faraway land, and Olin’s heir Kendrick is dead – slain by treachery and dark, bloody magic.
With their father and brother taken from them, the royal twins Barrick and Briony have done their best to hold the kingdom together, but now Barrick has been captured in a failed war against the immortal Twilight People and Briony has been forced to flee.
Behind the Shadowline, Prince Barrick is lost and spellbound in the land of the fairies. While Princess Briony, in her flight from the castle, finds both allies and deadly enemies in the unexpected places far from the land of her birth.
During their desperate journeys the twins discover that even a land’s rulers may know little of its true history, and that both families and nations can hide dark secrets.

Stuff is happening but it's rather dull

Dick Hill does a fine job but the material is just poorly written. The book contains what should be really exciting plot but the author phasing and tone make it feel like it is about as exciting as reading the the coles notes of a book rather then what could be a gripping story. While Tad Williams is a big name and the actual plot is good the presentation of events is poor and unimaginative. (Unimaginative is about the worst in a fantasy that could happen.) The book seems to have a pace and not want to speed up or down. Even the unexplained magics in the book seem rathern yawn worthly not because they couldn't be interest but because I never felt that their workings would be much of a shock.
