Publisher Comments:

Bestselling author Garth Nix's amazing Seventh Tower series is back--now with a great new look!

The Underfolk are restless. For a long time, they have kept quiet, occupying the lower levels of the Castle. But now they are going to be heard... Tal and Milla are no longer alone in their quest for the truth about their world. They have been joined by Crow, a rebel Underfolk, and his band of conspirators. They know many secrets about the Castle--and are on the verge of uncovering the greatest secret of all. The darkness is growing deeper. The shadows are growing stronger. And Tal and Milla are in greater danger than ever before.

About the Author

Garth Nix is the New York Times best-selling author of the Seventh Tower series, as well as the acclaimed novels SABRIEL, LIRAEL, and ABHORSEN. He lives in Sydney, Australia, with his wife and children.

Shoshana, April 1, 2007 (view all comments by Shoshana)
+ Continued revelations about the world of the story, good character interactions

- No substantive critiques

The fourth in the series. Tal and Milla continue their uneasy alliance. Tal, still hoping to return everything to normal, sometimes misses or does not ponder information that could be highly relevant. Milla, though in some ways initially more rigid, sees change and the implications of new knowledge more clearly. They respectively illustrate Piaget's notions of assimilation and accommodation.

In the previous volume, the reader learned more about Aemir, the world from which the Shadowspirits come. In book 4, the Underfolk of the Castle have their chance to become more vivid and personal. In this way, the series allows the reader to follow Tal's growing awareness of other people and the broader world as his skilfulness with light magic develops. One hopes that he will awaken from his youthful egocentrism. Milla undergoes a different sort of transformation after she returns to her people to deliver her news, then give herself to the Ice.
