A fun new mythology.

I wasn't sure what to think at first, having just finished the pendragon series of books also by Lawhead and become so attached to those characters I knew, but the narrator's talent and the authenticity his accent gives to the tale kept me plugged in during the developing stages where you don't really know enough about the new characters to be attached to them yet. Not far in to the story things get exciting and I was hooked. I think branching out from Britain mythology and delving into a tale of the green Isle is a great direction for Lawhead to have gone. Two thumbs up.

First rate performance of a first rate story.<br />

A first-rate performance of a first-rate Celtic fantasy tale. If you have read or listened to any Stephen Lawhead previously you should definitely partake of this offering. Though not as large as some of his previous epics it is nonetheless extremely well done and compelling and enjoyable. What else could you ask for?

Lawhead is just a master of Celtic fantasy!

Lawhead just doesn't disappoint! He gives us a brazen protagonist, elven charm, druidic lore, and a mystery to solve... and manages to keep the action going from the beginning! He weaves a story beautifully!
The narration was a bit heavier than I typically prefer... It wasn't bad, just not the lilting brogue I expect from a Celtic fantasy. Still, it won't keep me from the next book in the series, which I have already pre-ordered.

My favorite author

Stephen R Lawhead has long been my favorite author. This book lives up to my expectations of great story telling in such a descriptive way that I feel like I'm there. Looking forward to the next one in the series.

another hit for Stephen Lawhead!

stick with the story. it won't be long before you "get it" and are immersed in the story and the characters. By the time you reach the end you won't remember turning the pages. and at the end, you'll regret you didn't wait until the second one was published.

Classic Lawhead Lore

I liked the story a lot. Can’t wait for the next book.

This was not my favorite narrator. I found the fake Irish accent a little annoying. I did get used to it. Kind of. But wasn’t my favorite thing.
