Liath Luachra: The Winter Cave


Available now

After completing her ‘tasking’ in the Lonely Lands, the woman warrior Liath Luachra retreats to spend another winter alone in the bleak Luachair valley.

It’s by no means certain she’ll make it through to Spring.

[Note: This short story is Chapter One of Liath Luachra: The Seeking]

What other reviewers have said about ‘The Irish Woman Warrior Series‘:

“A fast-paced traverse through bush trails and battles with a female heroine who is commanding and fascinating.”

In the legends of Fionn mac Cumhaill, Liath Luachra is an intriguing name with minimal context, but in Brian O’Sullivan’s adaptions she becomes a most fascinating and formidable character in her own right. Her backstory is a great read; brigands and bloodshed, second-guessings and double-crossings. This is an Ancient Ireland that is entrancing and savage, much like Liath Luachra herself.”

“The plotting is riveting – full of twists and turns – and the action is full on, hell for leather. If you like Games of Thrones style dramas with a strong splash of Celtic culture, this is a book you’ll enjoy.”

“The Grey One is a savage and broken woman, who is also intelligent and vulnerable. This historical novel is a fascinating look back.”
