Jarred is a young boy who has grown up among his mother's peaceful desert people. While Jarred loves his mother, he longs to know the history of his father, a journeyman who left years earlier, promising to return for his wife and infant son. A broken promise but a token left behind--an amulet for Jarred that he has worn always. Some say it brings more than a bit of good luck his way, for no harm has ever befallen the boy.

When Jarred comes to manhood, he decides to journey into the world to seek his fortune and perhaps along the way find news of his father. In his travels he will come to a place so unlike his own as to boggle his mind--a place of immense tracts of waterways and marshes, where the very air seems to teem with magic and a people surrounded by creatures fey and not, with enough strange customs and superstitions to make his head swirl.

And to the beautiful Lilith, a woman who will haunt his dreams and ultimately steal his heart...who perhaps can provide a key to his heritage.

""...Dart-Thornton has crafted an impressive start to an epic journey down the corridors of myth and legend....This isn't a fairy tale wrapped up with a happily-ever-after, but readers looking for an intense and old-fashioned magical world will eagerly anticipate the next step in the journey.""--Romantic Times BookClub Magazine on The Iron Tree

""Endowing her characters with courtly yet bucolic diction, almost Elizabethan, and casting her narrative in clean yet poetic prose, Dart-Thornton conjures up her world of Tir and its rituals and beliefs in the luminous yet hard-edged manner of Jack Vance or Mary Gentle.""--The Washington Post on The Iron Tree

""The first Crowthistle volume is a leisurely paced romance of extraordinary events. One can almost hear Nikolay Andreyevich Rimsky-Korsakov or Erich Wolfgang Korngold's music in the background as Jarred tries to free himself from the clinging skeleton or takes the lovely Lilith in his arms. With scenes as vivid as any Technicolor extravaganza, The Iron Tree will capture readers' imaginations.""--Starlog on The Iron Tree
