This book without stretching the truth one hair's breadth, changed my life and me forever as a writer and reader. This book is what the term epic was coined for. The characters for as fantastical as they are, become so real that you feel them passing through your life as you read. You know them, feel them, mourn them and mourn along side them. It is rousing, passionate, powerful and a true hero saga in every sense of the word. Llywelyn's prose is incomperable and he Cuchulainn she gives us here is one of those tragic heroes that if you know anything about Celtic myth at all, you know how he will end up, but how she gets you there is worthy of song. This is probably one of the five best things I have ever read and it deserves to be on every Celt book lover's shelf.
