    A series ahead of its time, by looking to our past

    It's been fascinating how O'Sullivan has taken a little-known character from the Fenian Cycle, and essentially built her anew from the ground up. In doing so, he shows what is so great about mythology - that there's no copyright, it belongs to us all, and anyone is free to take one or all parts of it and create their own narrative space within it. Updating myth for a 'modern' audience is essentially what has always been done with these myths, from 2000AD's Sláine, to James Stephens, and back to the Christian-era monks who first wrote them down. As the stand-out character from the Fionn series, it was no-brainer to give Liath Luachra her own prequel. What shocked me was how young she is here, but O'Sullivan explains his reasoning in the illuminating epilogue. Female readers I'm sure will identify on some level with the protagonist's struggle in a brutally patriarchal society, with LL constantly having to doubly-prove herself - more aggressive, more skillful, more cunning - to the sceptical, predatory men surrounding her. I've intentionally avoided discussing plot details, but rest assured, like the Fionn series, The Grey One, features all the bone crunching action scenes and blind-siding plot twists that O'Sullivan excels in. That's not to say, it's all grim 'n' gritty. The action is occasionally tempered by moments of surprising tenderness, particularly the Sean Fergus scene, and the scene on the beach with Muirne, which foreshadows LL's (or shall I call her LiLu?) future relationship with Bodhmall. I don't hesitate to these books will be regarded as future classics of the genre. In other words, highly recommended.

    The grey ne

    Brillant attempt at historical lore. Had a sense of "trueness" and the protagonist is revealed with all her faults and callousness but develops as a person with a clear vision of right and wrong suitable to her time, nature, experiences and environment. I was moved by the story and will follow this author closely! Mullach Abu!

    Stunning Follow Up to an Earlier Adventure

    A spell-binding follow up to the Grey One, this novel read something like an Irish version of that adventure movie “The Thirteenth Warrior” although O’Sullivan’s penchant for plot-twists means you never know where or how it’s going to end until it rears up and smacks you in the face. This is very much a novel (and a series) for grown-ups. The politics and the violence is realistic, the reality of sexual harassment is not shied away from but confronted head on. The ongoing after-effects of trauma are also dealt with in a realistic but tactful manner. The tension and mystery surrounding a group of missing settlers intensifies as the story progresses (particularly in the second half) and the action scenes are genuinely riveting. In my opinion, the world of ancient Ireland has never been so effectively or authentically portrayed and it puts most of the other “Celtic fantasy” out there to shame. As for the protagonist, Liath Luachra … She’s still just as tough, just as ruthless and uncompromising and yet this story reveals a rare and surprising tenderness to her very much at odds with her violent background. I think I’ve fallen head over heels in love.
