Book Description

8 Aug 2013

The Outside World clamours at the wrought iron gates, while the evil alliance within Stonewylde threatens to destroy everything. With their new business and their relationship in tatters, Yul and Sylvie find their once-beautiful world has been desecrated by the dark forces.

But Stonewylde is as old as the hills themselves, and the landscape endures. Leveret has at last discovered her true calling and is determined to lead the community back into a golden age of magic and prosperity.

As the enchanting tale of Stonewylde draws to its end, Sylvie finally realises why she was brought here and Yul understands his true destiny. Whilst Leveret sees exactly what lies ahead for Stonewylde...

This cult series is a magical tale of love, anger and loss - but also, finally, of triumph against all adversity.

More About the Author

Kit Berry lived in Dorset for many years, where she worked as a school teacher and brought up three sons. She was inspired by the beauty of the landscape and her interest in folklore and earth-based spirituality to write the Stonewylde Series.

The first three novels in this five book series were originally self-published and achieved such success that in 2010 the rights to the series were bought by Orion. Under their Gollancz imprint, they re-published the first three books and then the final two. All five Stonewylde novels are now available, including an omnibus e-book.

Kit gives talks at literary festivals and book groups, and runs creative writing workshops in secondary schools and for adults. Details of her events, and the story behind Stonewylde, can be found on

Following her second marriage, Kit moved to Berkshire where she lives with her husband and animals. She's now working on a new project - an adult historical novel. Broadly following the themes in The Tempest, this story is set on the Isle of Portland during the English Civil War.

Product Description

Book Description

In the dramatic conclusion to the Stonewylde series, the future of the community teeters on a cliff-edge.

From the Inside Flap

Disaster has struck. Is this the end for Stonewylde?

The community's golden age is over. Now, with their new business in tatters, Yul and Sylvie increasingly estranged and Clip making plans to leave for good, darkness has taken hold of Stonewylde.

There is a glimmer of light in the darkness. Leveret's affinity for magic and for healing is blossoming and, alongside it, so is Magpie's art, but as the community's woes grow these are small consolations. Magic is fading from their lives and as the Outside World becomes more important to their survival, so it seems the magic may not return.

Painful truths must be revealed, about past wrongs, old lies and ongoing deceits, if broken relationships are to be mended. There are poisons which have festered for too long, and unless they are healed - and soon - the damage may prove too great to ever recover from . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant. 6 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
There is a vipers nest at Stonewylde ready and poised to strike at the heart of the Community and strike it does but not randomly.

The Community starts to break down with petty quarrels here and there and a betrayal of all betrayals. Stonewylde is now nearly bankrupt, the people are restless and some of them wish to go back to the old ways i.e., the Hallfolk living at the house and the villagers kept 'down' and in their place. This will never happen whilst Yul, Sylvie, Clip and the rest of the Committee stand firm. There is a'mole' at Stonewylde however who has been feeding information to someone on the 'outside' and soon a old Hallfolk girl turns up at Stonewylde..........Rainbow!

Leveret has been forgiven and now lives with Clip in his tower, learning all she can from him until he leaves at Samhain. She is still bothered by Jay though, but being with Magpie so much he leaves her alone.

This really is a rollercoaster of a read taking you through a whole gamut of emotions............happiness, sadness, anger and hatred. I freely admit that I cried reading a couple of chapters.

However, the wheel of the Pagan years turns and death and life will always have their part to play because what is one without the other?

I'm sad that this is the last book but like the sacred Pentacle it must end on the number 5.

I am a practising Witch and couldn't find a single fault with this book. Kit has done her research well and I applaud her for that.

I highly recommend this book to Pagans and non Pagans alike as there is something for everyone in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark days at Stonewylde 4 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So, we reach the end of the Stonewylde story - and what a way to finish this wonderful story.

These are dark times indeed. The spirit of Magus is still around, waiting for the chance to pounce, several old faces try to return and some want a return to the Hallfolk/ Villagers way of living. Yul and Sylvie are still struggling with their relationship problems - every time they seem close to working things out something else drives them apart.

The story, as ever is very involving and beautifully told. Kit Berry paints a vivid picture that makes the people and places of Stonewylde come to life - and that, for me, was the problem with this book - I kept putting it down because I didn't want to get to the end, knowing that this is the last book ever in the series.

But, eventually I bit the bullet and finished it. I was astounded, amazed, saddened and stunned. The last section of this book may well be the most wonderfully written and moving end I have ever read - after finishing the last page I think I just sat for 10 minutes or so trying to take in what had just happened.

Bravo Ms. Berry, you've done a wonderful job. The gates of Stonewylde may now be closed but I will be going back to these books for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing series 8 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the four earlier books, which I read over a period of about three weeks, and then patiently waited for the final instalment. Having pre-ordered it, it arrived on the day of publication and I started to read it that evening. I was immediately hooked and read half of it before I went to bed. I was delighted to see that things were beginning to sort themselves out in Stonewylde, and put the book down for the night, anticipating a fairly standard 'happy ending'. What a surprise, then, when I continued reading the following evening! The ending was very emotional, and very in keeping with the spiritual side of the series.
I will now be watching for Kit's next book, although I can't imagine how she is going to follow such a complete and satisfying series.

5.0 out of 5 stars nikki the hare 13 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The final book was a joyous and sad day when it arrived,sad as it marked the end of the stories that have captured our imagination made us fall in love and hate such well written characters and scenery,joyous as its like going to visit old friends so well written that you feel like your in the story watching the characters you have got to know so well.the final book does not disappoint,taking us on a ride of emotions. its a book that you will not want to put down ...just one more more chapter. The journeys end. there's not many storys you can re-read and not get bored with,but with kit berrys book's you can start from the beginning again and find things within the books you hadn't seen before.these are books you will never want to part with.

By Sarah

The wait for this book, the final part of the series of five books ('Five, Always Five.....if you're a Stonewylder, you'll know the significance of this!) has been a long one. Since book four was launched, in August 2011, the unanswered questions have hung in the air, the other books in the series have been read again and then re-read, plots have been discussed and the days to publication of book five, Shaman of Stonewylde, have been counted down.
I obviously don't want to reveal anything of the plot, so all I will say is that in this book the author, the wonderful Kit Berry, takes her readers on a rollercoaster ride of emotions across the pages, as the story that begun with Magus ends with Shaman. The plot twists and turns and twists again and frankly I couldn't put it down: I started it at about 8pm last night and finished it at 3am this morning.
All I will say is, make sure you have a box of tissues handy throughout and be prepared to be shocked.
Yet again, Kit manages to convey her story in a way that makes it accessible to Pagans and non Pagans alike: from my perspective, a Pagan one, certain parts of the story made my skin tingle. Once again it was as if I was standing there, within the grounds of Stonewylde, a bystander not a reader.....I was there in that stone circle, on that hill, in those woods, was evocative and very, very real.
However, now that I have read it, I am struggling with adequately putting into words how closing the final page in this series has made me feel.....because its simply stunning. I know that this book, like the other four, will be read and re-read time and time again and each time I will find something new, something that I somehow missed before, different layers that wait for the reader to discover them. These are not simply books, they are a phenomenon.
All that is left for me to say is, thank you Kit for the gift of Stonewylde.
