Lion of Ireland
Publication Date: 28 Oct 2019
From the ethereal mists of medieval Ireland, one legend will rise above them all…
Brian Boru is the twelfth son of the monarch of Munster, the jewel in the crown of an island torn apart by raids and rebellion, but he dreams of a glory that will outshine the stars.
Everything changes when Brian discovers his home burned to the ground and his family slain by Vikings. Fuelled by grief and rage, his quest for vengeance carries him across the country into the path of Queen Gormlaith and a battle that will decide the fate of Ireland.
As anarchy spreads like spilt ink, Brian must contend with enemies at every turn on his journey to become prince, warrior, avenger, king.
A global phenomenon which has sold more than 40 million copies and with a major TV series in development, this is an unputdownable epic perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell, George R. R. Martin and M. K. Hume.
