As a boy, Fionn mac Cumhal knew nothing of his birth and parentage - or of the magnificent destiny that was his foretold. But now twenty-four winters have passed. The boy has become a man - proven in battle, skilled in poetry and song. He has eaten of the Salmon of Wisdom and walked between the worlds of mortal and faerie. Already his remarkable exploits are legend throughout the land. And now the time has come for Fionn to assume his tribe's mantle of leadership - to restore his fian to its former greatness. But his enemies are mighty and many - from the hated mac Mornas led by one-eyed Goll, who commands the ear of the high king ... to the most powerful druid in all Eriu, the master of lies and chaos, who has decreed that his own grandson, Fionn mac Cumhal, must die. And there are obligations that must first be met in the Otherworld - where all times are as one. For it is there that the young hero must conquer foul dragon and goblin hordes in the service of his eternal desire, beautiful Donait of the Sidhe - and win with courage and slaughter the mystical weapon which was destined for him since the beginning of both worlds: the wondrous Hazel Shield. With breathtaking action and rich, vivid imagery, the magnificent chronicle begun in Master of Earth and Water continues. It is an unforgettable adventure of courage, fate, blood and triumph ... an epic saga of the most fabled hero in Celtic lore: Fionn mac Cumhal - prophet, poet, warrior, outlaw ... the soul of ancient Eriu
