Ireland: 198 A.D.
Six years have passed since the brutal attack on the community of Ráth Bládhma. The isolated valley of Glenn Ceoch is at peace once more but those who survived still bear the scars of that struggle. Now, new dangers threaten the settlement.
The warrior Liath Luachra has discovered troubling signs of strangers in the surrounding wilderness. Disgraced druid Bodhmhall fears a fresh attempt to abduct her talented nephew.
A summons from the fortress of Dún Baoiscne sets them both on a perilous traverse of the Great Wild where enemies, old and new, await them. And Muirne has returned to reclaim her son.
Come what may, there will be blood.
Sequel to Fionn: Defence of Ráth Bládhma, this exciting novel continues the adventures of the infant Fionn and his guardians’ desperate attempts to protect him from a range of treacherous enemies – some far closer than others.
Based on the ancient Fenian Cycle texts, the Fionn mac Cumhaill Series is a gritty and exciting retelling of the birth and adventures of Ireland’s greatest hero, Fionn mac Cumhaill.
