Once upon a time, the great Faeran High King Angavar and his twin brother - and nemesis - Morragan the Raven Prince, were trapped in mortal Erith when the Gate to the Faeran Realm closed ...
Now, many centuries later, the fugitive who calls herself Tahquil at last knows the truth: She is being hunted by the Raven Prince because only she can open the Gate to the Fair Realm. Morragan plans to use her to escape from exile. Yet Tahquil's mind is still clouded by a potent spell called the Bitterbynde and she is dying from a mystical wasting disease. The cure, along with the final answers to the mystery of her past, can only be found in Evernight - at the fortress of the Raven Prince. Though Tahquil has survived deadly trials of goblins, spriggans, pixies and haunts, nothing can prepare her for Evernight. Here, magic rules, the sun is banished and the Faeran Prince's whims shape the weather, the elements, the very nature of existence. And nothing can ready her for the most shocking revelation, still to come.
Is Tahquil a mere pawn of the Faeran? Is one immortal brother good. . . or are both coldhearted monsters? As Morragan's wights and Angavar's knights lock in a battle that can engulf Erith, Tahquil's quest for the truth will finally hinge on a desperate choice: If she opens the Gate, will she save two worlds - or destroy everything she holds dear?
