Reviews of Shadowmarch


Fans of Big Fantasy should not pass this up...if you do, it may take longer than you think to get caught up. -- Edward Carmien, SFRevu

Breathtaking in scope, lyrical, frightening, intriguing, and -- above all -- wildly entertaining, Williams's Shadowmarch is, simply stated, a magnificent literary achievement. -- Paul Goat Allen, Barnes And Noble

SHADOWMARCH is fine fantasy on an epic scale in a world in which those wielding magic must battle those who vastly outnumber them (Israel with technology instead of magic vs. the Arab nations). -- Harriet Klausner, ParaNormal Romance Reviews

...if one simply reads the story without analyzing it, it does make for excellent entertainment. -- R Michael Harman, Strange Horizons
