The Battle of Evernight 
Special Edition

The Bitterbynde Trilogy: Book 3
By Cecilia Dart-Thornton (Author)
The fugitive who calls herself Tahquil has at last discovered the truth. She is being hunted down because of the secret she alone knows. Her mind, however, is still clouded by a potent spell called the Bitterbynde, and she is also dying from a strange wasting disease, whose cure is elusive…

Disaster strikes and she finds herself in Evernight - at the fortress of the Raven Prince himself.
Nothing can prepare her for the horror that is Evernight, where magic rules, the sun is banished -
and the Raven Prince's whims shape the weather, the elements, the very nature of existence.
Yet Tahquil refuses to be a mere pawn of these Faeran lords and ladies, who are as merciless as they are beautiful.

As Morragan's wights and Angavar's knights become locked in battle that could engulf all of Erith, Tahquil's quest for the truth finally hinges on a desperate choice.
If she opens the Gate, will she thereby save two worlds - or instead destroy all and everything she holds dear?

The stunning conclusion to the best-selling Bitterbynde Trilogy, now with an extra chapter!

'Not since Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring fell into my hands have I been so impressed by a beautifully spun fantasy. .. Many fantasies are compared to Tolkien these days but few really have the excellent writing and good characterisation that this work offers. This is far above the usual offering in the fantasy field and the reader is left longing for the adventures to continue’
Andre Norton, Grand Master of Science Fiction

‘Cecilia Dart-Thornton exhibits strong and authentic evidence of ­having visited some of the more exotic corners of Faerie . . . Crucially for readers, she proves she’s able to bring the unicorn back alive, netted in golden prose . . . '
The Washington Post
