Fionn: Defence of Rath Bladhma
by Brian O’Sullivan
Ireland: 192 A.D.
Following the massacre of their enemies at the battle of Cnucha, Clann Morna are hungry for power. Elsewhere, a mysterious war party roams the forests of the ‘Great Wild’ and a ruthless magician is intent on murder.
In the secluded valley of Glenn Ceoch, a disgraced druid and her lover, the woman warrior Liath Luachra, have successfully avoided the bloodshed for many years. Now, the arrival of a pregnant refugee threatens the peace they have created together. Run or fight, the odds are overwhelming.
And death stalks on every side.
Based on the ancient Fenian Cycle texts, this is a gritty and authentic retelling of the birth and early adventures of the famous Irish hero, Fionn mac Cumhaill.
