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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse | 2/20/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book, its better than the first. Too bad I have to wait a year or so for the final novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/6/2014

    " Fun, but not as good as the first volume in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Badgerlord | 1/30/2014

    " That was good, but was too slow paced. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bingo | 1/16/2014

    " This continues a good story by an author with a vivid imagination and a distinctive style of telling. Four books put me (and the story) in a roomy comfort zone for scrolling through the adventure. Volume (4 x 600 pp), equals getting to know deeper characters with reinforced understanding of the story and its details. A good book. A great experience/exercise you can only get from a 3 or 4 volume story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shayna | 1/15/2014

    " Half way through and still curious as how it will play out!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacque | 1/3/2014

    " Fabulous, I became so involved with the characters, I felt like I was in the book. It' a vast and extraordinary world. I can't believe I missed this set. They are diffenently keepers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff Raymond | 12/25/2013

    " Tad Williams would be my favorite fantasy author had I not grown into adult fantasy with Terry Goodkind and Terry Brooks. The guy knows how to tell a story, even if it takes him forever to finish it. This may rival Otherland when it's finally done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 12/20/2013

    " Good! I like his slow style. It's maybe not for everyone, but I like how he takes the time to develop a moderate number of characters, rather than have you juggling 700 at once (AHEMBRANDONSANDERSONILOVEYOUBUTREALLY?) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rebecca Mcdole | 12/10/2013

    " I could barely get through this book. It was so slow and this story has been done before-just better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thain Segler | 11/27/2013

    " Tad Williams still rocks! Love the progress this story is making, looking forward to reading the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacey | 10/16/2013

    " Better than 1, gets better and better!!!!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Veronica Bailey | 4/5/2013

    " Honestly...I found myself so bored, so uninterested in this entire story, that I didn't even finish it. I've never before gotten this far into a series and then given it up, but....it was becoming a waste of time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Todd | 3/21/2012

    " I'll write a review when I finish the "4th" book, Shadowheart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassandra | 9/15/2011

    " Great second volume. I'm still having a wonderful time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Therese | 6/4/2011

    " Pretty good, but I had to put it down every once in a while when I needed a break from all dark parts. Not my favorite series by Tad Williams so far, but I have one more book, so we'll see! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johan | 5/24/2011

    " Definitely a step up from the first novel in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cristina | 5/6/2011

    " Better than book 1 but still missing his usual gripping sotry line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 3/9/2011

    " I'm sort of sad that I finished this as it means there's only one book left! Barrick has quickly become my favorite character in this series, so it should be no surprise that I really liked this one. Looking forward to the next with mixed feelings if only because I don't want it to be over yet. :P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 2/25/2011

    " Definitely has kept my attention. I'm wondering where he is going with some of the plot developments at the end. Can't wait to read the last book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DeAnna | 1/31/2011

    " Book three of the series. Again with the lack of rational judgement regarding Tad Williams' work.

    We finally get to find out the reasons why most of this stuff is happening. Also a well-built twist at the end of this book. We shall see... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary | 12/31/2010

    " It just keeps me wanting MORE! Great mega series to get lost in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 12/7/2010

    " amazing - twists and turns everywhere - on to the last one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristal | 12/3/2010

    " His writing style just has a way of pulling you into the story and has you wanting more, wanting to know what's going to happen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 11/21/2010

    " After reading only 3 of his books, I've determined that Tad Williams is worth the $30 for Shadowheart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 7/11/2010

    " While it's tempting to compare with Tad's groundbreaking Memory, Sorrow, Thorn trilogy, all I'll say is that the Shadowmarch books have really come in to their own. The scope is ambitious and the characters are memorable. Looking forward to the final volume. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 7/9/2010

    " I like Tad Williams a lot. This series, though, has been a slog for me without a ton of payoff so far. Third book in what’s now a four book series, it ended up being more of a setup for the upcoming endgame than anything else, and that’s all well and good, but… "
