Publisher's Summary

For centuries the Túatha Dé Danann lived in peace on an island where time flowed more slowly and the seasons were gentle - until that peace was shattered by the arrival of invaders. The Gaels, the Children of Milesios, came looking for easy riches and conquest, following the story of an island to the west where their every desire could be granted. They had not anticipated that it would already be home to others, and against the advice of their druids, they began to exterminate the Túatha Dé Danann.

After a happy and innocent childhood, Joss was on the cusp of becoming a man when the Gaels slaughtered the kings and queens of the Túatha Dé Danann. Left without a mother and father, he must find a way to unite what is left of his people and lead them into hiding. But even broken and scattered, Joss and his people are not without strange powers.

    "Preferred audio to print"

    I started reading the hardcover of this title and was so overwhelmed with all of the characters introduced in the first 2-3 chapters that I gave up. Fortunately, when I found it on audible I gave it another try.

    The story is good and complete and the narrator gives it extra flavor with his correct pronunciation of challenging words and melodious accent.

    I would have been delighted if a map of the island with landmarks noted from the book was available online or included in the book edition but I think I was able to piece most of it together by the author's details.

    "Wonderful story telling"

    Enjoyed the book, its rich characters. It took me until the fourth chapter to adapt to the strange names of people and places. But then the story came alive for me. Excellent narration.
