“a stunning read!” –charles payseur for quick sip reviews

“this is a beautifully written, poetic myth. although the story contains many lines of untranslated gaelic, it never becomes confusing, thanks to the author’s narrative skill. the background seems both magical and completely convincing.” –victoria silverwolf for tangent
