Are the Thirteen Lords of Shadow still trapped in their pocket dimension prison?

Are the Thirteen Lords of Shadow still trapped in their pocket dimension prison, @TheEdVerse? I know there were creatures summoned in the Harper novels called shadevari, but not if they were the same creatures who tried to help Shar against Selûne and were later trapped by Azuth.
