Sibeal, a druid in training, visits the warrior's island of Inis Eala preparatory to her final pledge. When her Sight leads her to the survivor of a shipwreck, a Norse scholar named Felix, the two form a bond despite Felix's amnesia. Soon Sibeal and Felix embark on a perilous journey that brings the young druid into conflict with her beliefs and her growing feelings for the man whose life she saved. This stand-alone novel set in the world of Marillier's "Sevenwaters" series (Daughter of the Forest; Son of the Shadows; Child of the Prophecy) combines adventure with quasihistorical detail in a Celtic-based story of love and sacrifice.
VERDICT This well-written tale by a top-notch storyteller will appeal to the author's fans.
