5.0 out of 5 stars shadows on the march, 28 Nov. 2007

This review is from: Shadowmarch: Shadowmarch Trilogy Book One (Shadowmarch Quartet) (Paperback)
Fantasy writer tad williams starts a new trilogy here. In a world of countries on the verge of war, one is in turmoil as the king is a prisoner elsewhere, and the shadowline, which divides their world from the world of the fairy creatures, is moving forward. their enemies, both human and otherwise, are on the move? Can the kingdom, and young royals briony and barrick survive and save the day?

A little tricky to get into thanks to an introduction that fills in a lot of detail about the world in very matter of fact prose, and then a prelude that does much the same. But after that the prose is very readable and throughly absorbing. There's a reasonably sized cast of characters but not so many that you won't have problems recalling them all, and they're all well written enough that they do appeal.

This is eight hundred and thirty two pages long, and the first part of a trilogy. thus it ends on several cliffhangers. But I really, after reading it, want to know what will happen next. and that's a sign of good writing.

If you like big long fantasy series you can really get your teeth into, then should more than suffice
