Filled with lovely prose and colorful descriptions, the author's vivid imagination creates a world filled with fascination. There are many characters to keep track of which I found very challenging, and to tell you the truth, I nearly set the book aside out of frustration. But I am a big fan of Morgan Llewelyn so I persevered. I'm glad I did because when I realized that the story was not about the characters but about what happens when two different cultures struggle to live side by side with all their vast differences, that I found my stride and understood the meaning behind the story. It is very much a tale of survival, of change, of adaptation. A challenging, but satisfying read!
Thank you to the author and publisher. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Beautifully written, this is a tale about forbidden love and respect for nature. If you like J. Marillier, this is a great introduction to the magnificent world of Irish tales and myths. I highly recommend it.
