A new age dawns in the kingdom of Eileanan, but not without resistance. Now the Righ, Lachlan the Winged, overturns his dead brother’s decrees against witchcraft. But sixteen years of hatred and superstition have cloaked Eileanan in darkness. And though he has won the power of the Lodestar, Lachlan’s rule is challenged by a mere babe—and a civil war erupts.
The flame-haired twins—Iseult the Scarred Warrior and Isabeau the apprentice-witch—must go their separate ways. Iseult to fight side by side with her husband, Lachlan. Isabeau to the Cursed Towers, to master her powers and to find the family she has never known.
One woman battling for a new reign, one woman learning the old ways, their separate threads will twist and turn into a tale of mayhem, mystery, and magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent read.. The third story in the trilogy, "The Witches of Eileanan", by Kate Forsyth, "The Cursed Towers" tells the story of the young apprentice witch Isabeau, and her twin sister Iseult. Forced apart by civil war, Isabeau flees to the mountains, to protect the baby Bronwen, where she struggles with understanding her power, and herself. Iseult must plan a war, along with her husband Lachlan, Righ of Eileanan. Many new characters are introduced without the story, and incredible new adventures begin. The Cursed Towers is a story of love, war, death and betrayal. It also includes the same amount of magic as the first two stories. I highly recommend this book.
