Fionn: Defence of Rath Bladhma
by Brian O’Sullivan
Ireland: 192 A.D. A time of strife and treachery. Political ambition and inter-tribal conflict has set the country on edge, testing the strength of long-established alliances.
Following their victory over Clann Baoiscne at the battle of Cnucha, Clann Morna are hungry for power. Meanwhile, a mysterious war party roams the ‘Great Wild’ and a ruthless magician is intent on murder.
In the secluded valley of Glenn Ceoch, disgraced druidess Bodhmall and her lover Liath Luachra have successfully avoided the bloodshed for many years. Now, the arrival of a pregnant refugee threatens the peace they have created together. The odds are overwhelming and death stalks on every side.
Based on the ancient Fenian Cycle texts, the Fionn mac Cumhaill Series recounts the fascinating and action-packed tale of the birth and adventures of Ireland’s greatest hero, Fionn mac Cumhaill.
