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.

Solstice is the story of how the final days of the 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 surviv

If you thought I hated the Magus before then that is nothing compared to now. No, strike that. I do not hate him, he disgust me now. If he was on fire I would not spit on him, I would not even think about it. He is slowly rotting inside in this one, and finally, people start to notice.

But I will go back a step. This book was just so emotional. I did not want to stop because I had to know! Could this sorry excuse for a human being be stopped?!

The magus has tried to kill Yul or break him more tha

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

Solstice at Stonewylde is the third book in a five book series by author Kit Berry. The fifth Shaman of Stonewylde is due out in Oct 2012. You have to read all the books.

This is the first book, which the characters had grapped my attention, making me want to find out what happens. This has been a slow progress starting in Magus bk1, building in Moondance bk2.

I will never give away anything from a story. I’m not mean like that.

This book is full of tension and suspense. As a reader I was grippe

OK, had to go on to see how Sylvie and Yul manage to outwit Magus and his increasing decline into irrationality.....

Again, the story is predictable; Yul gets poisoned and nearly dies; Sylvie realises (eventually) what Magus ACTUALLY wants to do with/to her; and the ending is satisfying in that I thought it was THE END.

Nope. No such luck. I believe there are two more books to come, but I can't see them getting any better.

Loved it.
Rich descriptions of nature and the buildings of Stonewylde. It's easy to get lost and escape in these books. I've lost sleep because I wanted to get to the end but now I feel a sense of loss that its over. Kit Berry's descriptions of the Festivals are beautiful and the undercurrent of abuse of power and materialism being mankind's ruin threads throughout. makes me want to have a simpler life and move to Stonewylde.

The third book of the Stonewylde collection and the best yet, enthralling climax as the destiny of Yul & Sylvie's future unfolds. As soon as I finish one of these book's I always feel desperate to return to Stonewylde... Will do so in July when I recieve the 4th Book in this series.

This is one of those rare books (series) that I could actually read again. I have never had a book take me so fully into the story that I see every tiniest detail and feel the feelings of the characters so intensely as this story does. Recommend a million times.

These books are engrossing easy reading. I found myself caught up in the plot and the characters and started to imagine that the place was real! There are some proper goodies and baddies and in places you want to boo and hiss!
Can't wait for the next book to see how the story further develops.

I love this series. Each book brings new things for Yul and Sylvie to deal with. I was on the edge of my seat reading it and rooting for Yul and Sylvie. Cant wait for the next one :)

Tied up very neatly so no idea what will happen in Volume 4. I thought credibility was stretched a bit far towards the end.
