I just bought two books by her, and am well entrenched in "Finn Mac Cool". Beautifully written! Unfortunately the didn't have "The Lion of Ireland", so instead I got "Grania" which looks very good. Has anyone else read any of her books?
May dragons bring you wealth and guard your treasures May they banish darkness and enlighten you May female dragons grant you inner power May the Dragon Queen neutralize your enemies May Dragon Spirits give you power over Elementals May weather dragons bring rain at your request May Ti'amat effect the changes you command May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power
Finn is the only one that I have read so far. Haven't had much time to read lately with just having moved, looking for a job, and getting the kids ready for school. I miss being able to sit down with a good bood and while away the evening.
If you like fantasy as well as Morgan Llwyelyn, then I would reccommend "Etruscans", which she wrote in collaboration with Michael Scott. It takes place in Italy during the reign of Rome's last King, Lucius Tarquinius Superbus. To give you an idea about the strangeness of the tale, I'll tell you that the actual story begins with a "man" running out of the Otherworld into the Earthworld being chased by a lot of white owls controled by a sinister (and angry) Egyptian goddess.
Hmmm... sounds like I need to check Ms. Llwyelyn out...
Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing? Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing? Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing? Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing? They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning? ~ J.R.R.
