Stunning conclusion to a great series!
Dart-Thornton's Crowthistle Chronicles charts three great love stories in three generations. Lilith and Jarred share the most poignant love (in THE IRON TREE), Jewel and Arran have the most epic pairing (beginning in THE WELL OF TEARS, and hovering in the background of WEATHERWITCH), and in this concluding novel, FALLOWBLADE, Asrathiel becomes caught up in the most surprising, tempestuous, and mythic romance of the series. Is she flirting with evil or has she found her immortal beloved?
Dart-Thornton's writing is mellifluous, but sharp and honed as the blade of the novel's enchanted sword, when it needs to be. Her skill in magical world-creation is just as powerfully displayed in this series as it was in the Bitterbynde trilogy. Perhaps I felt even more enchanted by this series and experienced even more of the celebrated longing for the world of faerie. I admire the author's research and her careful documentation of her sources for certain incidents, faerie language, and some of the novel's themes. This makes fascinating reading, especially for anyone contemplating writing fantasy, and it lays bare her process in a helpful way that doesn't diminish any of this author's gramarye.

About the Author
Cecilia Dart-Thornton was discovered on the Internet.
She had written the three books of the Bitterbynde Trilogy without showing them to anyone.
After she uploaded the first chapter to a Writers' Workshop her work was spotted by an editor. Within a short time Time Warner's publishing department had signed her up for a six figure advance. They published her books in hardcover, the first time they had ever done so with a new author. The Bitterbynde Trilogy hit the best-seller lists world-wide and has been translated into five languages. Since then she has written four more fantasy novels.
New, revised and extended Special Editions of The Bitterbynde Trilogy available in 2013.
