On Raven's Wing

ISBN: 9781788637190

One day they will call him the hound of Ulster, born to glory, brushed by the raven’s wing…

The small boy who arrives at the ancient royal fortress of Emain Macha has only one desire – to join the legendary Red Branch, a mighty order of warriors pledged to defend the standing stones and river-strewn hills of Ireland.

Setanta has always longed to follow in his father’s footsteps as a knight, but he could never have prepared for the fatal beauty of Deirdre, the brutal jealousy of King Conor or the blistering fires of Queen Maeve’s vengeance.

From the shapeshifters of the Otherworld and their goddess of war to the mythical spear of Gae Bulga, Setanta’s adventures set him on a path to finally claim his long-foretold destiny as Cuchulain, the fabled hero of Celtic lore.

An epic historical tragedy seething with magic and mayhem, this will be utterly adored by fans of Bernard Cornwell and Robin Hobb.

Published in North America as The Red Branch.
