A story that is the dark side of the Fey, a side that gives a new meaning to the word ‘fairytale’, The Last Stitch takes Adelina the Traveller’s narration to its climax at a terrifying masked ball in the secretive mirror-world of Veniche.
It is a story of revenge, of friendships lost, of love and the cruel machinations of enchanted Others who weave in and out of mortal live

The Last Stitch is the second installment in Prue Batten's The Chronicles of Eirie. A fantasy come fairy tale adventure that does not require the reader to have read the first volume. A synopsis and prologue are thoughtfully included, as well as a glossary and map.

Batten has constructed a vocabulary for her World of Eirie based on ancient folklore and this gives the novel an authenticity, and reinforces the magical atmosphere of a world inhabited by Faerans, Others, magical creatures, herbology

The Stumpwork Robe and The Last Stitch really form one longer book. Neither book stands alone.

I believe this is a self-published set. I'm pleased to see someone get their story out there and I found the books enjoyable.

The story is set in a world similar to ours but also populated with creatures who are borrowed from mythology. The author has a visual artist's sensibility in her descriptions of landscapes, water, hair, etc. Those who stitch will appreciate her prose. Stitchers will also be pleas
The direct sequel o The Stumpwork Robe keeps the same poetic style that made me finish the first book and it becomes more interesting as the first novel, maybe because it is more limited both in theme and space and follows Adelina in her attempts to thwart the evil Severine.

So instead of trying to conjure an extended world like in the first novel, here we are in a relatively small space both geographically and thematically and it's much better suited to both content and style; after all in fair

Loved every line of this sequel book. A wonderful story a thick plot, rich with magic elements. Phelim is a true hero the fight within him is brutal but he succeded, his good nature wining over the faeran aspect of him. Adelina is the heroine a very strong woman and a loving mother from the moment she finds out she's carring Kholi's child to the time of the birth and beyond; a true example. Fascinating world created by Prue Batten.

I was born in Australia and studied history and politics at the University of Tasmania. I've worked as a hotel cleaner, a cosmetician in a major department store, a bookseller but most properly as a journalist/researcher for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation where I met my husband, also a journalist.

We now farm in Tasmania, growing the superfine wool for which Australia is famous. I spent al
