Finn Mac Cool
Publication Date: 28 Oct 2019
Somewhere in the shadowlands between myth and history wanders a warrior poet who transformed a nation…
Finn has always been an outsider. The son of a disgraced druid and an outlaw who defied a High King, he is raised in secrecy by foster mothers who train him to hunt and kill.
When Finn is apprenticed to a local bard, he finds strength and solace in the sorcery of poetry, and for the first time dares to dream of something more than the hand the gods dealt him.
As soon as he learns of the legendary warriors of the Fianna, the army his father lost along with his life, Finn longs to reclaim his honour and heritage as their rightful leader.
This is a spellbinding historical adventure of an iconic Celtic folk hero, perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Juliet Marillier.
