Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

The Dark World is in danger, for the Veil is vulnerable. War is soon to come. On one side are Tal and the Underfolk rebels, struggling valiantly for freedom. On another side are Milla and the Icecarls, preparing to assualt the Castle in order to preserve their world. And on a third side lies the most sinister force of all--a force of evil that has only now chosen to reveal itself--a force of such power that it could unleash the ultimate destruction.

Synopsis:

Tal and Milla are caught in an Underfolk uprising that will have dire consequences for the Castle--and for the entire Dark World.

Shoshana, April 10, 2007 (view all comments by Shoshana)
+ Sustained action rising toward a crescendo

- A little more emotional depth would better match the characters' growing maturity

The fifth in the series. Tal must go to Aenir to enlist the Empress's help, and Milla must lead the Icecarls into the Chosen enclave. The Freefolk, an unknown quantity, nicely complicate their missions and goals.

The action generally alternates between Tal and Milla's stories as each races to complete daunting tasks. The pace is a bit more frenetic and chapters often close on a cliffhanger. Both protagonists come into their own more fully, and the association with the Freefolk suggests what I hope will happen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which is that privileged protagonists must empathize with and promote justice for their society's underclass.
