I'm thrilled you enjoyed the book. I might write a sequel some day. I love Letta and her world. I think when the book finished she probably went to live with the Desecrators and became active in their world. Maybe she taught children how to read and gave them all the words she knew. What do you think?(less)

Wonderful book. I really enjoyed this retelling of ancient Irish sagas. Some I knew from my childhood but others were new to me. Kieran makes all of them seem new and fresh. Highly recommend.
