Description

The Sons of Mil long held the dream of the Island of Destiny close to their hearts. A dream perhaps, but to these restless, adventuring people it was a shining emerald prize to be won by those who were brave enough, or foolhardy enough, to sail to the very ends of the known world.For the Bard Amergin and his people, that dream comes true. When they land safely on the shores of this enchanted isle, they know that they have won the favor of their gods. Joyously, they begin to build their settlement. But it is soon clear that they are not alone in this green and pleasant land; their fellow inhabitants are the secretive Danu, a people who resonate power and mystery in abundance.As Amergin negotiates with the Danu, so that both peoples may peacefully share the island's wealth, he sees their beauty, their wisdom, and their love for the land. And one more thing.Amergin's second sight shows him that the Danu are not human.The Danu. The "little people." Everyone knows of this mystical race that landed on the shores of Eire long ago. They were imbued with power over nature and - some would say - over Time itself. They were the guardians of the land. While many doubt they ever existed, there are many who claim they are still among us.What if the people of the Danu were not mythic, but were based on historical evidence? Juilene Osborne-McKnight's Song of Ireland tells of the coming of the Celts to Eire, their discovery of this race, and the clash of cultures that resulted. It is a story of war and revenge, madness and magic. And perhaps how one love can bring hope when all seems lost.show more
