Connor’s younger brother is jealous of him, and one of the Irish kings is colluding with the Scálda. The two circumstances run into each other and Connor is exiled. The Druids are also divided, is there anything they can do to save Ireland, and should they even be doing anything? What about the fairys, why are the Scálda kidnapping them – aside from the ‘kidnap beautiful women’ idea?
I realized by page 100 that this story is taking twice as long as it had to, and started skipping pages.
The short chapters by alternate points of view are interesting, don’t skip those.
I really loved Lawhead’s book Sherwood, though.
