Blackmantleby P Kennealy Morrison
Synopses & Reviews
Once, in Keltia, a woman dared to wrest back from the Lord of Death himself the greatest treasure of all: her beloved mate . . .
It is a time when the star-kingdom of Keltia is plagued by the Firvolgi, an ancient alien race. Yet along with a problem, the gods have sent a solution: Athyn Cahanagh, born orphaned on a battlefield, becomes High Queen and drives the invaders out. Athyn--now known as Blackmantle--and the great bard Morric Douglas fall in love and wed, ascending the Keltic throne as king and queen. But the lovely, dissolute courtesan Amzalsunëa vows she would sooner kill her onetime lover Morric than see him with Athyn--and she keeps that vow.
But Athyn has sworn an oath too, one of love and vengeance. Taking the Low Road that only those mighty in magic may tread, she journeys to the Otherland, to find her lost lord and bring him home...
"A splendid tale."
Attacking savagely, stealing land, and corrupting the ancient customs that the people of Keltia have cherished since the time of Atlantis, the hated Firvolgi are well on their way to conquering the Kelts. But the gods bring gifts with calamities, and in this dark time a bright light has appeared. Born orphaned on the battlefield, her name is Athyn Cahanagh, but she is known by friend and foe alike as Blackmantle. As she sweeps Keltia to victory and is acclaimed as High Queen, Athyn meets the great and gifted bard, Morric Douglas, and a love story as deep as all time begins.
