A dazzling fantasy inspired by the legend of the first true queen of ancient Ireland. In the kingdom of Eire, banshees chill the air, and water-wights lurk in the rivers. But the gods have abandoned the isle, and magic is jealously hoarded by the king's Druid priests. Neve is the forgotten youngest daughter of the king, and Ronan is a Druid's apprentice turned thief, making a living by selling stolen spells. They should be enemies, but their shared hatred of the Druids—and a strange magic that has marked them both—makes them unlikely, if uneasy, allies. When a shocking death throws the kingdom into chaos, Neve must seize the chance to take the throne, with the help of Ronan and the realm's most dangerous outcasts. Their journey takes them to the outskirts of Eire where magic still runs free ... and where an outlaw and a warrior princess might carve out a future with spells and swords. Lesley Livingston vividly reimagines Celtic legends and fairytales to craft a thrilling fantasy adventure that will captivate readers of Brigid Kemmerer and Tricia Levenseller.
