The Bristling Wood, or Dawnspell as it is known in the UK, is the third book in the Deverry Cycle. The book is set in two parts; a continuation of the travels of Rhodry and Jill as Silver Daggers during 1063, and; the story surrounding the origin of the Silver Daggers.


Jill is kidnapped by a very peculiar lord, and Rhodry searches for her, but is captured by pirates and sold as as slave in the island country of Bardek. When Gwerbret Rhys is mortally wounded, the king overrides Rhodry’s sentence of exile.
