Dawnspell: The Bristling Wood (The Deverry Series, Book 3) by Katharine Kerr
Book three of the celebrated Deverry series, an epic fantasy rooted in Celtic mythology that intricately interweaves human and elven history over several hundred years.
Over a thousand years ago the People of Deverry were driven from their splendid kingdom by their enemy, the Hordes, and forced to find sanctuary in the remote forests in the east of their lands where they eventually settled.
Succeeding generations remembered these terrible events as the Burning - and they never forgot the cities, towns and marvels of the far, far west. DAWNSPELL, the third compelling volume in Katharine Kerr's epic Deverry series, continues the bold saga of Nevyn, Rhodry and Jill as they battle with the evil forces threatening the world of Deverry in the decades that follow the Burning.
