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.

Good story but hard to understand

I'm a Tad Williams fan and this story does not disappoint. However, I have problems with the narration. Dick Hill is great with all of the different voices. Unfortunately, the grunts, coughs, laughs, whispers, and exaggerated accents sometimes make it very difficult to understand what he is saying. I've noticed this with some other narrators. I wish they would understand that while the acting can enhance the audiobook experience, it should not detract from the reading of the story. In this case, I will have to forgo the audiobook versions of the rest of this series and read them myself.
