    Fifth century Ireland comes alive in this imaginary tale of Kiara the healer and the shepherd boy who would change the face of history. This book weaves fact and fantasy into an engaging story. Beginning with Niall of the nine hostages, high king of Ireland, this story tells of Maewyn Succat, a young Briton from a prosperous Christian family, who is kidnapped by Niall and made a slave in pagan Ireland. It is there he meets young Kiara, Niall's kinswoman who has learned the healing arts of her fellow pagans.
