Third title in the Stonewylde Series, picking up where the cliff-hanger in the last book left off.

A horrific climax, where five must die, ensures the reader is left spellbound.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stonewylde Comes Alive 31 July 2010
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read the first two books, I didn't want to start this one --- only because I knew when I finished it, it would be a long wait until the next in the series. Well, I couldn't resist and just like the previous two, Kit Berry's descriptive talent was brilliant. I was in Stonewylde with all the characters - move over Harry Potter, this would make a great film. Really looking forward to the continuing story of Stonewylde and its habitants - what will Yul and Slyvie do next? Thank you Kit Berry for such a riveting read.

This book ( 3rd in the series so far) gave me the 'droopy eye look' accompanied by the black bags! yes! yet again the book was glued to my
hands and my head was falling off with tiredness.

But did i put it down? no way, hosay! an awesome read! a gripping story which fed my imagination as i read page after page. I didnt want it to stop and now am suffering a strange kind of mourning until more, YES! YES! YES! stonewylde books are in making.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant Series 31 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is the 3rd of the series and is the best so far. It is a page turner and I have stayed up late many nights just to find out what happens next. There will be a total of 5 books in the series - the final one to be released in 2012.

5.0 out of 5 stars The story continues ... 24 Oct 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I managed to get an advanced, autographed copy of this book from the author Kit Berry at last weekend's Halloween Festival. Unfortunately for Kit, I couldn't stop gushing.

The story of Sylvie, Yul, the Magus and the community continues in this the third book of the Stonewylde series. This third book does wind up the major plot line involving the three main characters, but still leaves some questions which will allow for the next two books. I expect I will read these in one sitting, as I did with the first three novels.

Kit Berry is certainly a talented writer, allowing the reader to revel in the atmosphere of the Stonewylde community for a few blissful moments before taking up the narrative. The author also has the knack of being able to provide a backstory simply and, almost subtlely. This allows the reader to understand the consequences for the behaviour of certain characters without the need for long explanatory notes by the author. This allows the storyline to continue at a cracking pace.

There are some developments in this book that may leave some readers disturbed, certainly I did a bit of skimming over the sections when Sylvie is in the rooms of the Magus - not because the writing was lacking, but because the situation was more than a little uncomfortable and given that I had guessed a certain "twist", it made it even harder to read. It might not affect all readers this way, but it did me.

Dark, mysterious, spellbinding... book 3 of the Stonewylde Series is definitely the best to date, and I love them all as you'll see if you read my other reviews.

The series are full of folklore, wildlife, pagan rites and natural magic, with Yul drawing on the magic of Mother Nature and the Earth, and the shining Sylvie drawing strength and magic from the power of the moon. The gripping story of Yul and Sylvie fighting for the well-being of the manorial and village community of Stonewylde is gripping in its intensity and beautifully written throughout.

In book 3 Yul and Sylvie face one of the darkest moments in the history of Stonewylde, the run up to the winter solstice at which the prophecy that Mother Heggy made sixteen years ago might come true... or could even fail... It all rests in hands of young Yul and Sylvie, who are fighting against the dark force of the Magus.

I've loved these 3 books and in a way I wish they ended here, as the author originally intended, but apparently there are another 2 to come. That said, I'll be the first to rush out and buy them when they're published! I can't recommend them enough - easy-to-read fantasy for 12+ ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars You have to read these books! 2 Nov 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My sister first got me into reading the series after she came across them online & when I borrowed her copy of the first book 'Magus at Stonewylde' I was hooked. This third installment of the series is, I believe, the best so far. A little darker than the first two, it sends the reader on a rollercoaster ride of emotions from beginning to end. Throughout the story I willed the two sweethearts Yul & Sylvie to be together & it is this feeling that leaves you incapable of putting the book down! It's definately a page turner.
Kit really captures the magic of the different sabbats & through her descriptive writing makes you feel like you are there, as Autumn becomes winter at Stonewylde. You do not have to be a pagan or even have religious beliefs to read these books- take them for what they are; fantastic stories that send you to a world of earth magic, romance, deceit & darkness. These books are for anybody who is wise enough to pick them up & enjoy them.

*always moongazy*
