Product Description

Book Description

Weapons glitter, men’s voices are raised in battle-song and bright banners crack and flap in a sharp breeze; armies of steel and bronze are marching to war as the ruthless king of the southern realm executes his plan to seize dominion over the Four Kingdoms. With Tir’s most powerful protectors slain by treachery and the defenders scattered, it appears nothing can stand in the tyrant’s way. Asrāthiel, summoner of storms, called 'Weatherwitch' by her wayward, eldritch companion, aids the defenders as best she can, but the invading armies are pushing further north and it seems that all is lost . . . Until a new peril unexpectedly looms; a far more dangerous and deadly menace that threatens not merely the balance of power, but the entire human race . . . ‘Dart-Thornton conjures up her world of Tir in the luminous yet hard-edged manner of Jack Vance and Mary Gentle’ Washington Post --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Another good book. Shame there are no more to follow in this series as it is nice to follow a family through several generations
when there is a good story line.

i would recommend the qua-trilogy to anyone who enjoys fantasy and very long stories that tie together at the very end of the forth book. each book captures you after the 5th chapter and holds you still with only your eyes and imagination moving. read and enjoy.

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Voracious for Books VINE VOICE on 16 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback
This would have been an enjoyable book, but was ruined in my opinion by two things. Firsly that the villan from the previous book is disposed of neatly and anticlimatically quickly, at the beginning of the book.

And secondly that the author spends large portions of the book flogging the reader over the head with her long diatribe against animal cruelty and evil carnivorous humans. I skipped huge sections only to find that the author was still spewing her message via the voices of the main characters, but it just cluttered up the book and ruined the tone of what should have been the main plotline. I won't be reading any more of her books.

Stunning conclusion to a great series! 9 Oct. 2008
By L. Gott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.
Great Four book series 15 Feb. 2014
By Lynda Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great four-book series. Last book in the series was over $20.00, and I did not understand why? Needed to purchase it to finish the story. Enjoyed all four books.

Great book priced way too high 10 Aug. 2012
By Karris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I find it odd that the first three books in this series are all widely available at low prices and this one is priced astronomically. Good way to ensure lack of interest for reading any of these if you have to pay $30 - $100 for a used paperback in order to finish the series!
