Thousands of years ago, the gods fought and fell in the deeps beneath what is now Southmarch Castle, then were banished into eternal sleep. Now at least one of them is stirring again, dreaming of vengeance against humankind.

Southmarch haunts the dreams of men as well as gods. Royal twins Barrick and Briony Eddon, the heirs of Southmarch's ruling family, are hurrying back home as well: Barrick now carries the heritage of the immortal Qar inside him, and Briony has a small army at her back and a fiery determination to recover her father's throne and revenge herself on the usurpers.

The cruel and powerful southern ruler known as the Autarch of Xis wants the power of the gods for his own - a power he can only gain if he conquers Southmarch.

And nobody knows what the Qar want, only that the mysterious fairy-folk are prepared to die for it - or to kill every living thing in Southmarch Castle and in all the lands around.

It will come to an apocalyptic conclusion on Midsummer Night, when the spirits of the haunted past and the desperate struggles of the present come together in one great final battle. Many will die. Many more will be transformed out of all recognition, and the world will be forever changed.

    " Decent and mostly well-written, but it doesn't cover much new ground compared to other books Tad Williams has written. Some characters that appeared seemed a bit sudden/random and things that happened seemed a little too pat at times, to the point it might have been good if Mr. Williams' editor had been a bit more stern with him. A solid fantasy series, but nothing exceptional, and the ending was bitter and depressing. "

    " Wow... I'm really not sure what to say about this final volume in the Shadowmarch series. Wonderful, intricate, exciting, and satisfying. The ending was two parts unexpected and one part very expected, but that's okay. This series has held so many surprises that an expected thing or two is okay with me. :) "

    " Tad Williams shows us once again that he is a true master storyteller. In this forth and concluding book of the Shadowmarch series, Tad not only brings a dozen story lines to a conclusion, but he does so with truly delightful and refreshing imagination. Tad's stories never feel like they are copied from some one else's ideas; they are always new and interesting. I love being surprised and unable to guess how a story will end. I love it when the story is so creative that it is truly fascinating. If you love epic fantasy, you can't miss by reading any of Tad's books. I strongly disagree with reviewers that suggest the series is too long; I wish a story like this would never end. "
