Barrick Eddon, prince of Southmarch, is no longer entirely human. He has vowed to safeguard the legacy of the dark Qar race, and must now decide where his loyalties lie.

His twin sister Briony has a difficult choice of her own. Her father, King Olin, is held captive by the Autarch, a mad god-king who plans to use Olin’s blood to gain unlimited power. And the castle of Southmarch still remains in the possession of Hendon Tolly, Briony’s murderous relative. As time runs out, will Briony decide to save her father’s kingdom . . . or her father?

As the foretold Great Defeat draws near, history is stripped of its costume of lies. Poets and players, mortals and fairies, warriors and gods – all will have their roles to play as the fate of the known world hangs in the balance.

Reviews

'A fourth volume that nails everything you could want from the conclusion of an epic fantasy yarn... rich in detail and exploding with imagination
SFX
The plot springs from climax to climax as intrigues and secrets are unwound and revealed
Booklist
His books are immersive, drawing the reader into his work, seducing them to not notice the time flying past them as they delve further into Williams' imagination
Sacramento Book Review
Perhaps the greatest thing I can say about Shadowheart is that through four long volumes of a story, Williams convinced me to care utterly for his characters and there's a hole now in my life where they once lived. Few storytellers can do that. Williams does it with alarming regularity.
A Dribble of Ink
Shadowheart was an immensely satisfying final entry to the series.... Anyone who likes their fantasy 'Tolkienesque' will be hard-pressed to find any author writing today better than Tad Williams.
SFSite
All four volumes of Shadowmarch are must reads for any fan of high fantasy.
