    The thinking woman's warrior!

    A very good mix of tension, full on adventure and fascinating characters set in ancient Ireland made this a very enjoyable read. The two main characters Liath Luachra (a disturbed warrior woman) and Bodhmhall ( a druid with a dark past) have established an idyllic oasis of peace in the wilds of ancient Ireland until they're disturbed by the arrival of Bodhmhall's ex-husband (a hilarious Fiacail mac Codha) and her conniving sister-in-law Muirne Munchaem. Pregnant and desperate, Muirne is fleeing not only from the threat of an enemy tribe (Clann mac Morna) but some terrifying, unknown enemy who wants to kill her unborn son. The spirited defence of the tiny and isolated community against a horde of gruesome warriors is absolutely nail-biting stuff. The love triangle between the three main characters meanwhile, is touching without ever being mawkish or over-sentimental. I can't recommend this book enough.

    Very original

    This was an interesting book I obtained because of a freebie prequel by the same author. It reads a bit like David Gemmell but with much stronger female characters. There's a very nice mix of action, clever dialogue and a mounting tension up to the dramatic finale but it's the touching relationship between the woman warrior (Liath Luachra) and the druid Bodhmhall (and little references to Celtic culture) that really made this book for me.

    Great action! Brilliant characters!

    I became a fan of O'Sullivan because he consistently writes plots with gripping tension, great dialogue, and strong female characters. This action packed yarn of a siege in ancient Ireland certainly was definitely one of the most enjoyable books I read over the last year.
