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.

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.
