Synopses & Reviews
The sequel to Morgan Llywelyn's glorious Celtic fantasy, Druids
, The Greener Shore
is a beautifully told adventure story.
After Julius Caesar triumphs over Gaul, the druid Ainvar and his three wives sail west to the brilliant green island of Hibernia. Here, Ainvar and his clan try to reestablish themselves.
Ainvar's "senior" wife, Briga, provides constant wisdom and support for him. Strong, sensible, and with druidic powers of her own, Briga overcomes all obstacles. Readers who appreciate strong female characters will love this woman of the druids.
"Not just fantasy fans will appreciate this gentle, quietly dignified tale."---Publishers Weekly Starred Review
