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 www.stonewylde.com.

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.

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 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.

With "Solstice", book three in the Stonewylde series author Kit Berry continues to go from strength to strength.
This is a much darker book than the previous two. Both the main characters, Yul and Sylvie, start the book in a dark place and as the tensions build toward the prophesied endgame at the Winter Solstice things do not get better for them. The character of Magus is a scarily bad man, sometimes "villains" in literature can be a bit too cardboard and pantomime like but he is believable in his nastiness. The book was gripping and well written - this really does deserve to be the Next Big Thing.
One final thing - there was one scene, towards the very end of this book (can't go into details, sorry - spoilers!) that was possibly the most beautifully written and moving piece of work it has ever been my good fortune to read.
Looking forward to book 4 in August to see where Ms. Berry takes the series.

Format: Paperback
Stonewylde has been a series to capture the readers imagination since its original inception and release a few years ago and with a new fourth part to come shortly it's was time to catch up with everything as well as to see what would unfurl for the stories heroes as the villains were left with the upper hand in the end of the last instalment.

What occurs is dark and bleak but also shines the greater for the hope that springs from within. Its well written, the characters crisp and whilst the crueller aspects are played to great effect by Magus, the heroes always struggle against his darkness and as such bring this tale to a gripping conclusion. Add to this great prose, wonderfully detailed landscape and of course the growth of the characters that really keep this novel gripping as death and mayhem ensue which make this series one that refuses to let go. Great stuff.

Format: Paperback
Solstice of Stonewylde is the third (and currently the last completed) novel in Kit Berry's Stonewylde series. At the end of Moondance of Stonewylde, Sylvie is suffering under Magus' cruel desire to siphon off her moon magic and Yul's life is in permanent danger. In this third installment of the Stonewydle saga we are once again transported to Kit Berry's magical world, but this time it is a much darker place for all its inhabitants as the titanic struggle between Magus and Yul draws to a close.

Solstice is the story of how the final days of a prophecy unfold. At Yul's birth Mother Heggy prophesised that he would come to challenge the Magus on his 16th birthday (the day of the Winter Solstice) and only one of them would survive. In the meantime, she believes that Yul's enemies will fall, one by one.

Sylvie's life is being endangered by Magus forcing her to channel the moon magic for him every month. Her mother Miranda is bearing his child and the Hallfolk are making every aspect of Sylvie's life a misery. Perhaps it would be best if they left Stonewylde, especially now that Sylvie is unsure of Yul's feelings for her. Perhaps there is a way to negotiate an end to the conflict between Magus and Yul and ensure that they both survive?

Although I love this book, I felt the ending was a little predictable. Kit Berry also ties up all the loose ends, as it was her intention that this would be the final Stonewylde book. However, she has since changed her mind and there are more in the pipeline. Anyone who is interested in fantasy worlds will love the Stonewylde series and should pick up the first book without delay!

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.
