The Iron Tree - Cecilia Dart-Thornton ... breathtaking first volume in The Crowthistle Chronicles Jarred, recently come of age, is leaving the sun-scorched desert village that has always been his home. He sets out with a band of friends to see the mighty and beautiful kingdom of the north and to seek out the truth about his father, who came to the village a stranger and departed when Jarred was ten, never to return. After the travellers are set upon in a ravine and several of their number sustain injuries, they seek shelter in the Marsh of Slievmordhu - a cool green world of dazzling beauty as different from their homeland as night and day. Here Jarred meets Lilith, and in a single moment he realizes that his life can never be the same again. But neither of the young lovers is aware how closely linked their fates - and their past - really are. During a visit to Cathair Rua, the Red City, Jarred stumbles across the secret of the Iron Tree, and with it an unbearable truth about his father's identity.

I am what could quite easily be described as a fairly indiscriminate, voracious reader. Basically, if it has a story line I will quite happily pursue it, regardless of genre. I read Cecilia Dart-Thornton's first trilogy about a year ago, and was pleasantly surprised by its dark drama, very twisted plot lines, and not entirely happy ending (shan't say any more incase I spoil it for you). Whilst randomly bumbling about on Amazon, I was pleased to discover that she is attempting a second trilogy, and immediately got myself a copy of the first volume of it.
