Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, the great Faeran high king, Angavar, became trapped in mortal Erith, along with his twin brother and nemesis, Morragan, "the Raven Prince". It was when the gate to the Faeran Realm was closed on them. Now, many centuries later, the fugitive who calls herself Tahquil has at last discovered the truth. She is being hunted down by the Raven Prince, because she alone can reopen the gate to the Fair Realm, so Morragan plans to use her for his escape from exile. However, Tahquil's mind is still clouded by a potent spell called the Bitterbynde, and she is also dying from a mystical wasting disease. The cure, and the final answers to the mystery of her past, can only be found in Evernight - at the fortress of the Raven Prince himself.

The first book was great, the second was OK, the third just felt like nothing happened!
The story constantly gets lost amid ridiculously long descriptions and i found myself not knowing what was happening half the time because of this. The characters have many names and this makes keeping track of them hard. I thought this was the last book but it turns out its the last book (part 1), kind of like what they did with the harry potter books in cinema. So i was a little worried when 5 minutes to the end nothing was being resolved. Nothing is resolved in this book.

Here is a brief synopsis:

- She goes into a forest
- She finds some kind of rope maze and slides down ropes
- She finds a village where every man thinks she is hot
-She meets a man who has trouble walking over small trickles of water
- She leaves and travels far looking for the door
- Then just before she gets to the door her friends get kidnapped
- She travels away from the door looking for her friends
- She makes funny shoes to walk over a hedge maze
- She finds a lava kindgom
- She turns into a swan

She always gets close to finding something plot worthy when she gets distracted right at the last minute and decides to travel 500 miles (as the crow flies) in the other direction. MENTAL. The main character (Imhrien, Rohain, Ashalynn, Taquil) is just annoying me now. It was better when she was a mute.
