Here’s an excerpt:

Manannán cleared his throat. “There is one other who will have a role in this, when the time comes.”
So you keep saying,” dismissed Miach, “but we never see him. It’s not a thing we can count on if you never tell us anything.”
Manannán nodded. “True, but don’t discount what I say.”
Aengus sent the three other young people back to Tara, cautioning them not to arrive at the city gates together. He waited with the older man outside the cave.
Manannán spoke first. “I assume you realize Cridenbél is a spy,” he said. “He might be blind, but he hears everything.
Aengus nodded. “I know. We’ll have to take care of him.”
Take care of him? How?”
Aengus smiled grimly at the older man. “I’m going to kill him.”

One caveat for sensitive readers, though. If your middle schooler isn’t ready to read, say, some of the exploits of Zeus from Greek mythology, you might want them to wait until their a little older. The book is recommended for ages 13 and older. The gods sometimes have a different idea of what’s right and wrong than humans do.

Coming Soon: The Second Battle

I’m working hard right now to finish up the final edits and formatting on The Second Battle. This novella is a retelling of the Second Battle of Moytura from Irish mytholgy especially for a YA and older audience. It had been previously published, and I’m re-releasing it with Four Phoenixes. I’m not going to announce a release date until I’m sure I have my ducks in a row, but I hope to have it ready to go by St. Patrick’s Day!
