Audible Editor Reviews

James Stephens' retelling of 10 Irish fairy tales is a true delight, and narrator Kevin Stillwell's understated performance highlights their charm. The stories are set in a medieval Ireland filled with larger-than-life hunters, warriors, kings, and magical creatures; many of the tales are derived from the Fenian cycle of Irish mythology. Listeners will thrill to the stories of the Fianna and their leader Fionn mac Cumhaill as he embarks on adventures with druids and enchanted children. Stillwell's delivery of Stephens' words captures their poetic cadence wonderfully.

Publisher's Summary

Assembled by a renowned poet and student of Gaelic language and culture, this edition includes "The Birth of Bran", "The Little Brawl at Allen", "The Enchanted Cave of Cesh Corran", "Becuma of the White Skin", "Mongan's Frenzy", and other stories.

    "Great Celtic stories"

    this is a great work, it is a longer and a different tales style from many of the stories you have heard if you are a Lister to Irish tales. I would recommend it

    "I'd buy 20 more stories"

    Needs more Diarmuid of the Gay Face, one of Irelands most underrated characters, with stories of witches, demons and magic spears; but the selected stories were awesome.

    Kevin Stillwell does an incredible job of performing the stories, adding a sense of mysticism and wonder to all, paired with perfect pronunciation made this one of the most enjoyable anthologies I've heard.

    If they teamed up to release another compilation, it would be an insta-buy for me.
