Bethany What a great list! I can't wait to read the books up there that I hadn't heard of yet. Some other books that I think should be included, though...
The Light-Bearer's Daughter
The Chronicles of Faerie The Book of Dreams
The Summer King
The Hunter's Moon

Thanks! And thanks for the recommendations - I just got Hunter's Moon. Let me know if you discover more great celtic books.

Grace Tjan Laura, thanks for inviting me to vote on this list. But since I haven't read any of those books, I can't really vote for any of them. :-)

If you're thinking of Rutherford's "Princes of Ireland" it's up there :)
