Folk of Stonewylde behold our new Magus!
And the end of the first part of the Stonewylde series is near. I really enjoyed reading these three books with my best friend even though I struggle from time to time.

This will be for now my last review of the Stonewylde series. I am still going to do the other two books, but due to problems with time-management I do not have the time to read the books before publishing my next review. Just to let you guys know.
I very much enjoyed reading Solstice of Stonewylde, I am very sad to have finished it. I think it is beautifully written. Of course I am not happy about all the ordeal Sylvie and Yul have to endure. But it felt real and all my feelings went with the story.
Solstice is not the fast book of the three. I think the second one, Moondance, read at a much faster pace. During this book the emphasis lays more with the ordeal the two go through, then not the adventure. The characters do grow a lot over the events of this book.
Sylvie finally grows into a woman over the course of this book. At the beginning she still feels a lot like a young girl, who is easily drawn in with charm and gifts. Even though Magus is showing his true colors.
Miranda also grows a lot, just like the child in her womb. She finally goes back to the woman she was before Stonewylde. I am very glad about that, because I liked her being all independent and such, but due to Magus influence I got annoyed with her.
I was so proud of Yul, going through even though he felt really bad for putting the one he loves through so much. I felt very relieved when the final fight began. And I had to keep back tears and I never cry when reading books!
I would recommend this series to everybody who like a more real story. It does have some fantasy elements in them, but is like not all out magic.
