Outcast. Betrayer. Chosen.
After five years being a Fianna, Aisling O’Malley still has to prove herself every day. The sins of the father weigh heavily on her shoulders, and no matter what she does, her fellow warriors regard her as the undeserving one. It doesn’t help that one of the four mythical treasures of Ireland has turned up under her nose, leaving her none the wiser. If by any chance the touted Spear of Lugh up for auction is indeed the legendary Spear of Victory, she needs to get her hands on it before anyone else does—and be spectacular enough about it to make the rest of the Fianna forget she almost missed the artifact in the first place.
Exile. Betrayer. Forgotten.
After spending twice as long undercover as he ever lived at home, Ronan no longer knows where he belongs to or where he’s actually exiled from. He can’t return to his people, not unless he collects the four artifacts of power the Tuatha Dé lost when they were forced to leave Ireland, and three millennia after the fact, he’s pretty sure they’re going to remain lost. Except one of those ancient treasures has landed in his lap—or could land in his lap, if he brings himself to work with the spunky young woman who wants to hire him to consult on the Spear’s authenticity.
Can two broken people learn to trust one another? And even if they can, will it be too late to save Ireland… or themselves?
Aisling is the protector of Ireland (Fianna) so of course, she has all of the magical power that is Ireland behind her but she still has to fight every day and overcome the reputation of her father and that she is worthy to lead. She has to keep the territory safe but when a magical artifact is rumored to surface, well, things get tough. There is a cute meet between her and another warrior named Ronan which is filled with humor and intrigue.
The world building is quick and believable but then again, I have been reading stories about the magic in Ireland for as long as I can remember. The spark between Ronan and Aisling is palpable. Everything moves along quickly with lots of action. It was nice to read something full of adventure and excitement.
