Summary

'“Say what you like about the lack of company,” said Myles, clearly trying to lighten the mood. "But you’ve got to admit this is better than being shot at.”' 
An unidentified ocean, the 4th Century: Sirel and Myles are on the run. Chased by dark figures that seek to hurt them and their loved ones, the two childhood friends have fled across the sea, hoping for a better life.  
Then salvation comes their way, and Sirel thinks they are free at last. 
But as they look deeper, both Sirel and Myles fear that they might have fled one nightmare only to find themselves caught in another one. One where this time, they have no means of escape.

This time the nuns seem intent on killing her. Yet that doesn’t pain her as much as her broken heart. Will Sebastian realize his mistake and come back for her?
    
    Her younger sister Kate, 15, embarks on her training with the witch, coming of age under her auspices, mastering the sword, gaining more power than she ever imagined possible—and determined to embark on a quest to save her sister. She finds herself immersed in a world of violence and combat, of a magic she craves—and yet one that may consume her.
    
    A secret is revealed about Sophia and Kate’s lost parents, and all may not be what it seems for the sisters. Fate, indeed, may be turned on its head.

    A shape-shifter and an errant soul share an unbreakable bond and a curse, and must join together to fulfill an ancient magical prophecy in Nancy Springer’s final installment of the Book of Isle When Prince Dair was a small child and still in wolf form, he saw his future in the loom of Ylim, the weaving seeress as old as the world. It was prophesied that he, the changeling son of King Trevyn of Isle, would travel far from his home and his loved ones, carrying his magic to the mainland. For the first time, Dair saw the golden swan, and the face of the stranger to whom he was eternally linked, the wanderer called Frain. But this mysterious youth who can feel everything Dair feels—his emotions, his anxieties, his pain—bears an obligation to a lost love and a curse of dark enchantment. Still, the bond that unites Dair and Frain is stronger than iron, and in their mystical union rests the fate of a troubled land.   Reviewers have compared the volumes in Nancy Springer’s enthralling Book of Isle series to the works of J. R. R. Tolkien and other masters of fantasy literature. The captivating saga concludes spectacularly with an unforgettable tale of duty, friendship, peril, fate, and love that adds a new richness and color to this remarkable island realm and its magical inhabitants.
