Featured Review on this writing by Rob73

Bri an Dugh(Bree an Doov) is Book three of the Dark Shee Trilogy.
Set in the Celtic Mythological world of Tir Dhuchais (Too-ur Doo-vish / Homeland) Off the coast of the Northern Wildlands, lies Pictoi Isle. Hidden in the mist, it harbours a dark secret, a destructive secret. Crom Dugh, the God of the Mound, the Black Bull, has awakened from his ensorcelled slumber. With his feared headhunting Pictish Clansmen, Crom Dugh and his dark Druid, the Giant Formori King, Balor of the evil eye, plan a destructive path that will tear the land of Tir Duchais apart.
Can the Children of the Sidhe God Cernunnos; Cu Mactire, Belisana Argetlamh, Brehon McCern and Tigernmas, stand against them and turn the tide of darkness that threatens to sweep over them all.

Impressive descriptive writing as always. The reader is really there. And a bevy of mysteries to launch the narrative.

At last, the last instalment of this story I first got the idea for in late 1990s. But I always think, there is a reason why some things take time. In this instance becoming a better writer, is one. I think if I had written it years ago, then it would have been a shadow of what it will be, now. Enjoy the ride, Adam :)

This is awesome! Hope I'm not kissing anything jumping to the third book, it doesn't seem that way. Fantastic imagery!

Although they are linked by characters and an ongoing story thread. You could read them as individual stories. I hope that you will enjoy this one enough to want to read the other two.

Thank you so much for your encouraging words.

Kindest regards

Wow! Any story with Nimue and the Sidhe will be one I enjoy, C-S. Cinaed might not have made it to the end of the first chapter but you did a great job of bringing him to life.
