(From the publisher):
The Isles of the Blest
is based on the ancient Irish tale of Connla of the Fiery Hair. An archaic account of one of the most characteristic Celtic conceptions, that of an earthly paradise where heroes fight and die gloriously and live again, and no one ever grows old.
The mighty Connla is weary from the tiresome and bloody battle fought in the name of his father, Conn, and his land, Erin. Willingly, he lets himself become intoxicated by the surreal beauty of a fairy-woman who offers to take him to a far away, forbidden land where all his desires will be fulfilled. He welcomes the opportunity to be away from the gruesome war that has consumed his life for so long, but what price will the warrior pay to be in a land void of death, loss and pain? Does the pleasure of company of the stunning stranger outweigh the price he must pay to remain in The Isles of the Blest?
