Her search will lead from the depths of space, where worlds are born, to the heart of an ancient enemy's stronghold and on to a trial of courage and magic that even the Queen of the Kelts ...more

Consistent. Obviously, others really like her style. This volume satisfactorily closes the trilogy. All is--more or less--put to rest.

That the conclusion of Aeron's quest presents her with as big a challenge as the quest is appropriate and well presented.

War in space is, at best, alluded to. The big battle at the end is again a land battle. Unconvincing. That earth would just hop into the middle of a galactic war stretches the credibility, too. The Imperium had not nearly the menace of well-wrou

I loved the entire Keltiad series by Kennealy-Morrison. The concept and the characters really caught me and pulled me into the story; Aeron is one of my all-time favorite characters (if you are a Sarah Maas fan, and like Aelin, you would likely be fond of Aeron as well).

The Copper Crown and The Throne of Scone - one story.

What a muddle!

Okay, first things first. These covers are just gorgeous. Thomas Canty isn't given any credit in the actual books, but it's his artwork. (And he even sells signed prints of the images.)

I fully expected to love these. I got a whole bunch of the books of the 'Keltiad' in advance of reading any of them. I don't think I'll be reading all of them.

Fine, the premise is a bit absurd: In the 27th century, a probe ship from Earth discovers

I love this book, and the two that follow. This is a book for sci-fi/fantasy fans only--casual readers of popular literature will probably not like it. Aeron, the hero, is a true fantasy figure--she's beautiful, smart, gifted in magic and warcraft alike--her only flaw is her fiery temper.

The premise is fascinating--what if space traveling Earthlings discovered, in the far reaches of the universe, several planets full of earthlings who had fled Ireland thousands of years ago as a result of religi

The second book in the series. Continues the story of the overthrow of Aeron and the search for Arthur's treasures so that evil Jaun Akhera and his ilk can be tossed off of Keltia and the return of Aeron and her people. A LOT of action. Excellent read! Another must read.

The second book in the Keltia series if you dont include the prequel. This describes Aerons flight to locate the 13 tresures of Author and save Keltia from destruction. Alomg the way she makes unlikely allies and changes the face of the galaxy for ever. This book is a great read.

So good! Such a relief to past some of the cliffhangers but sad that the book is finished too.

Enjoying re-reading the saga. I'd forgotten a lot of detail and plot so it almost reads as brand-new :-)

Just as enjoyable as the first. Finished the stuff off nicely.

I probably read this series once every 18 months or so. Likely my favorite book series. It has the additional benefit of portraying my religion in a way that is accurate while accessible.

Ok, once you get past the Kelts in space, it's really a great premise for an epic tale. And for those of who like to wallow in our "kelt iciness", it's a perfect book to do that with.

I'm very fond of this series. An inspired retelling of classic Irish Myth set forward several centuries into the stars.
