A chilling, fast-moving, and captivating page-turner told in the aftermath of the great Leprechaun Wars.
While the Emerald Isle lies ravished in famine, young Gwydion of the Clan O'Dubney rises from the ashes of defeat after his father is brutally murdered by the ruthless King Ortho. Gwydion narrowly escapes the King's wrath by seeking a safe harbor on the Isle of Darkness.
During his travels, Gwydion runs afoul of the King's most despicable enforcer, a vicious hunchback known to all as ‘Extor the Cruel.’ Along the way, he has a spine-tingling encounter with the dreaded Caoronach, whose erotic allure almost proves fatal.
While planning his ultimate revenge on King Ortho, Gwydion buys time by hiding out among the world of the humans. During his adventures in this bewildering new world, he finds both love and internal conflict as he struggles to decide his future path.
Gwydion has his ultimate revenge in a spellbinding return to the Emerald Isle. The aftermath is a poignant and satisfying conclusion to this truly enjoyable epic.
Although the novel is listed as a ‘Fantasy,' the incredible underlying story is suitable fodder for mature readers of all genres.
What an amazing novel! I had no idea what to expect, but I have read several of this author's novels and trust his work, and this book was no different than his other stellar outings.
Imaginative, exciting, scary at times, and brilliantly plotted, this novel is a must read.
Loved it! Absolutely loved it! Jonas Saul, author of the best selling Sarah Roberts series
