    With it's deliberate pacing, slow unveiling of the deeper mysteries, and
    fitful advances of the plot, this is hardly what one would describe as
    an all-consuming read . . . and yet, no matter how many times I put it
    down, it was never long before I found myself itching to take it up
    again. A far more languid read than the first two volumes, this is also
    the first instalment where we really begin to get a sense of what is
    going on in the realm of Southmarch and beyond. All the various tangled
    threads begin to come together here, hinting at deeper meanings, yet
    never really coming right out and declaring the story's intentions. As
    it always the case with Tad's books, the writing here is stellar, with
    the dreamlike scenes beyond the shadowline more powerful than anything
    I've read in recent years. The dialogue is crisp and clever, and the
    theology/mythology is wonderfully detailed. Even the minor characters
    stand out on their own, instantly recognizable no matter how little page
    time they receive. Part of me wants to rail against Tad for choosing to
    split this final volume into two parts (with Shadowheart concluding
    things), unnecessarily drawing out the story, and dragging us through a
    novel that's as much set-up for the end as it is movement towards that
    end. The other part of me, however, is perversely thankful for the
    prolonged climax and the chance to spend a little more time in his
    world. Don't get me wrong, this is no Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn, but it
    is Tad Williams, and that means it's epic fantasy of a higher calibre.
    Had this been any other author, I likely would spend more time singing
    it's praises, but Tad has created such expectations that I (perhaps
    unfairly) feel the need to nitpick.

    One of the best Heroic saga since the lord of the ring

    I read a lot of fantasy already and was a bit bore about this kind of stories. Tad Williams brought me back with this fantastic serie. The Shadowmarch series is one that comes the closest to Tolkien's philosophy : Williams develops this world entirely, from the religions to the personnalities of each character. I think he succeeded to overtake the genius of Tolkien because his writing is easier to read and no one in his books is bad because they belong to an evil species. The purpose of each character is explained (if you read them all :D) and be carreful to every details because they'll make sense later !
