The trio travels to Arcdur but their journey isn't easy because they pass through lands inhabited by the unsealie who wish all mortals harm. Magical allies assist them, but eventually Morragan catches her and tries to force her to remember where the gate is located so he can return home and exile his brother the High King Angavar forever. Angavar learns what his brother is planning and comes to stop him. Tahquil recognizes him as Thorn, her true love. The brothers clash and Angavar wins the battle, claiming Tahquil as his own. They were supposed to have a happily ever after ending but tragedy strikes, separating the two lovers once again.

THE BATTLE OF EVERNIGHT is a very satisfying conclusion to “ The Bitterbynde Trilogy”, an epic romantic fantasy that will appeal to romance and fantasy lovers. The heroine is a very determined woman who is not deterred from her quest despite the dangers and pitfalls she knows she will face. The romance between mortal and Faeren rings true and when the lovers are reunited readers are happy for them. It is hoped that the author will return the readers to Erith in future books because it is a fascinating and magical place to visit.
