Publisher's Summary

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, the king’s children Princess Briony and Prince Barrick, are both trapped far away from home and fighting for their lives.
Barrick is lost behind the Shadowline, facing all the terrible dangers and mysteries of that magical twilight land. Briony is alone in a treacherous foreign court, struggling to survive with no weapon left to her but her wits. And in the midst of all this, something unbelievable is awakening underneath Southmarch, something powerful and terrible that the world has not seen for thousands of years.
In this third volume Barrick and Briony, along with Qinnitan - the Autarch’s desperate, escaped slave - a loyal soldier named Ferras Vansen, and a tiny handful of other folk, ordinary and extraordinary, must find a way to save their world, or else witness the rise of a terrible new age - an age of unending darkness.

a great listen

Tad Williams has to be one of the most imaginative writers, I've had the pleasure of reading or listening.

Terrible book with a terrible narrator

It becomes painfully obvious almost immediately in this book that the narrator does not like the characters he portrays. He reads them as whiny spoiled children who hate everyone and have no redeeming qualities. The sad part is that I agree with him. This is the worst "attempt" at character development I have ever been exposed to. The characters, with few exceptions, are completely unlikeable. The storyline drags like it is stuck in the bog of eternal stench. Yes, it is really that bad. I've read books by or co-authored by, Tad Williams and it is hard for me to believe this is the same writer. I'd give the book zero stars or negative stars but people tend to skip over reviews that appear to not have a rating.

much much better

The story gets so much more interesting. the first book was such a slow burner but characters have all blossomed interestingly.
A little more pace is required to make this a better read but all in all I loved every minute.

Good story

Tad Williams is a good craftsman and this story is well crafted. Not the best of his but worth the trouble to listen to.
Narration is SLIGHTLY annoying, but works out pretty well anyhow.
