In case you haven’t spotted it yet, Shadowheart (UK/ANZ) was released this month in paperback. It’s the breathtaking conclusion to Tad Williams’ epic fantasy, the Shadowmarch series. The finale of this tale sees Barrick Eddon, Prince of Southmarch, choose where his loyalty lies – with humans, or with the black Qar race, whose legacy he has promised to safeguard. . .
It’s a fantastic end to a knockout series and as a big Tad Williams fan I have to say it’s definitely not to be missed. A few other people think so too:
‘Rich in detail and brimming with imagination. Dive in there and get lost’ SFX
‘It’s always bittersweet to see a series come to an end; As fans, we’re always eager to know what happens to our heroes and heroines, but we don’t want them to leave our lives either. . . Williams convinced me to totally care about his characters and there is now a hole in my life where they once lived. Few storytellers can do that. Williams does it with alarming regularity’ A Dribble of Ink
‘Raising shadows and Shadowheart are the best ending to a fantasy saga I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. . .’ fantasy book review
