Ashling McGillicuddy has an Irish Traveller father and her mother was from the settled community. Her father parted with his Traveller background and was shunned by them, but the couple are not accepted by the settled community either. Then, when Ashling is seven, both parents die in an auto accident. Ashling eventually makes it via the foster route (a prequel here?) to Galway University, Ireland, where she majors in Irish Mythology. However, the award of her Degree is stymied by the absence of a Birth Certificate. To clear her head she goes hang-gliding, passes through a gap in the clouds which sucks her into a time-portal and is deposited back in time to the reality from which the modern-day Irish myths evolved, is endowed with super strength, powerful eyesight and the assistance of a friendly dragon.
To return to the present she must make her way to Mount Olympus, but first she has to protect a community of Humans over whose lordship Fomorian Giants are battling Elves of the Tuatha Dé Danaan. Will she succeed in her aim? Read the book! There is material in the story for a sequel as well.
The quality of the English is quite superb, and the battle descriptions are vivid and colourful.
I am not a particular fan of the Fantasy Genre, but this book was recommended to me by our local Librarian, who is also the moderator of our Book Club. I am delighted to endorse her recommendation..
With newly gained super-human powers, Ashling combats creatures of Ireland's legendary past to save the human race.
This fascinating book gives the reader lots to analyze and consider.
The heroine Ashling finds herself propelled through a rip in time into a monumental adventure which takes her back to the shores of Ireland’s history where she must use every skill and ounce of courage in her possession to overcome the obstacles before her.
She’s quite a pistol. “Chivalry?” she yelled. “That’s just a code word for femicide!” And the adventure begins.
Will she be able to save the human race from destruction? You’ll love reading every page to find out!
