What the Reviewers Say!
“An incredibly tense and satisfying read about the face-off between a predator and a lone pregnant woman in the wilderness of ancient Ireland. Best short story I’ve read in a while.”
“This is a prequel to Fionn: Defense of Ráth Bládhma, and as such it details some of the journey of Muirne Muncháem, who is fleeing through the wintery Irish landscape while pretty pregnant with a future Irish Mythological Hero to get to her destination (which is Ráth Bládhma, as it turns out).
Short and sweet, a thrilling little read which gives a nice feel for O’Sullivan’s writing style. It concluded well and left lots of room for the entirety of the Fionn mac Cumhaill story to begin in earnest. If you haven’t read it, this is a great place to start!”
“A short but tense tale of a pregnant woman in ancient Ireland fighting to survive an encounter with a starving wolf. It’s the first chapter of another book by the same author which I bought based on this very good story alone.”
“A nail-biting confrontation between a pregnant refugee and a ravenous wolf in the ancient Irish wilderness, this wee book had me hooked from the first page. The version I read also had sample chapters for the subsequent series which I also enjoyed immensely.”
