Ireland: Second century.
The Lonely Land of Osraighe: Ireland’s shadowy centre, a desolate region of forest, marshes and mountainous terrain where unwary travellers are ‘swallowed’ and never seen again.
Caught up in a tribal conflict when her latest mission goes sour, the woman warrior Liath Luachra finds herself coerced into a new undertaking. Dispatched to the Lonely Land to find a colony of missing settlers, she must lead a mismatched group of warriors, spies, and druids through a land of spectral forest, mysterious stone structures, and strange forces that defy the very rules of nature.
In the shadows of this ancient ground, Liath Luachra must hold her war-band together and face her inner demons, while predators prowl the dark spaces between the trees …
Awaiting their moment to feed.
