SKELLIG: The Tales Of Conor Archer, vol. 2
by E. R. Barr
RUMORS OF MAGIC AND MURDER hung over the tragedy at Tinker’s Grove which destroyed a town and killed some fine people. Aunt Emily thought sending Conor Archer to Ireland to see his godmother was the solution to keep him safe and out of harm’s way.
Conor went, and immediately got himself in trouble with a local landowner, a Japanese war criminal, and a bunch of Otherworld things that wanted to destroy him. Not everyone was an enemy. There were the secretive Travelers–the Tinker folk with legends that tended to come true. Of course, the Roan were there, the People of the Sea, promising to watch over him. But there was something more–an ancient being camped out on the mysterious Skellig Islands, intent on protecting him and the land.
Good thing he had his shapeshifting powers. But would his new found abilities be able to defeat the Dark who wanted him dead?
