Liath Luachra: The Seeking

How do you catch and kill a ghost?

In the bleak Luachair valley, Liath Luachra’s winter seclusion is brusquely disrupted by a desperate plea for help. Raising her ‘fian’ to rescue a comrade’s abducted sister however, she quickly discoveres this simple ‘Seeking’ is far more perilous than she could ever have imagined.

Traversing the wilderness of ancient ireland in pursuit of a mysterious raiding party, the woman warrior finds old enemies seeking to undermine her and new allies who can’t be trusted. Meanwhile, within her own war band, unspoken secrets from her warriors have also begun to surface.

Faced with horrors she’d thought long forgotten, a chilling spectre from her past and new threats rising in country’s south-east, Liath Luachra must revert to the very worst part of herself to survive.

And confront the phantoms of her past and present.

 But you cannot stalk – or kill – a ghost.

Previous reviewers comments on the character Liath Luachra:

“The thinking woman’s warrior”

“A female heroine who is commanding and fascinating.”

“Liath Luachra, the troubled and withdrawn woman warrior, has always been one of the best things about the (Fionn mac Cumhaill) series and O’Sullivan does a tremendous job relating the events of her early life, presenting her as a much more vulnerable character – although just as resilient.”

“An intriguing female protagonist unlike any I’ve come across before. Intelligent and competent, she’s also tragically damaged and vulnerable and yet somehow manages to cling to her fragile moral core.”
