For many centuries, an age of magic and peace has flourished in Ireland for the faerie race known as the Danaans. But an invader has now come to those shores who will conquer more fatally than any army, driving the Old Ways from the land forever. His name is Pátraic--and he will be the worst thing that ever happened to Ireland...
In the Earth year 453 by the Common Reckoning, a small fleet of ships left Ireland, carrying emigrants seeking a new home in a far land. But he seas they crossed were not the wild Western Ocean, nor were the ships they sailed the leather-hulled boats of later legend.
Those ships were starships; the oceans the dark starry gulfs of space itself. The new world they sought was a distant double-ringed planet, and though this great heroic voyage was indeed led by a man called Brendan, he was no Christian navigator-monk but the son of a mortal lord and a princess of the Sidhe. And when magic began to die in Ireland, he took the best of Celtdom to the stars.
In The Deer's Cry, eight book of her Keltiad series, Patricia Kennealy-Morrison takes us back to the distant days when Keltia was not yet, and weaves the tale of how it came to be...
