Description - The Cursed Towers by Hannah de Valda
The Witches of Eileanan- Book Three. The Cursed Towers, another spellbinding episode in this enchanting series
Lachlan the Winged now holds the Lodestar and is Righ of Eileanan. But his battle to gain the throne is only the first of many that he and Eileanan must face. The sea-dwelling Fairge are taking over more and more of the coasts. The half-breed Maya, who wrought such terrible persecution upon Eileanan's witches and fairy creatures, has disappeared -- though this has not deterred groups of soldiers maintaining their loyalty to her and her baby and threatening Lachlan's rule.
Despite having played a crucial role in his victory, Isabeau feels increasingly uneasy at Lachlan's court. She has taken responsibility for Maya's baby, Bronwen, and fears her brother-in-law's jealousy of the child. Once again she must take to the road, though the road she travels this time is unlike any other ...
Under the watchful eyes of the dragons, Isabeau and Bronwen make their home at the crumbling Towers of Roses and Thorns deep in the mountains. It is there that Isabeau will discovers her true heritage -- and the true nature of the dragons.
As Lachlan seeks support throughout Eileanan, from distant lords and from the faery creatures, his armies continue to fight the invading Tirsoilleirean soldiers. Meanwhile, Maya has kept herself well-hidden and makes plans to regain her baby and her power. However in the aloof Margrit of Arran she finds a dangerous ally, and in the end aid comes to her from a most unexpected direction ...
