And you certainly won't be disappointed with this one. I found myself feeling like I was in ancient times reacting to the storyteller. There is something about Frank Delaney's writing that mesmerizes me at the get-go. I wanted to like the Druid as a wise and worldly, little man, but his means of getting Elaine were horribly dishonest. In the end he is caught in his own falsehoods. What one will do to "get the girl ." The question here is: Did he love the girl or did he love what came with the girl? Read this short story for you shall see. Imagine you are sitting around a hearth-fire, in an Irish cottage or a pub in Ireland listening to the storyteller. Frank Delaney is brilliant in his creative abilities, and with prose that will have you asking for more.

I recommend this quick escape to a great short story. Worth the read. Can't wait for his next short story.

Frank Delaney begins this story with a preface about the well-known Bards of Ireland, their various names, their powers, political connections, place in the community, and their wonderful story-telling abilities. Frank Delaney here continues the tradition in this series of short stories, the first being "The Druid"!

This is a truly magical story about a crazy Druid who also knew how to manipulate the people he served with his powers. It's such a short story and not to be ruined by telling too much about it. It contains the proverbial phrases and comments that helped expand a bard's story, but most of all it tells of how much the common Irish farmers trusted the Druid with their present and future, even down to the focus of this story, the possible wedding of a beautiful daughter to one known and one unknown suitor! Every utterance of advice was honored as if it came from the divine!

The Druid is an annoying but funny guy whose end will delight every reader! Frank Delaney is a true Bard sharing his love of fable, legend and stories in the 21st Century, and readers are privileged to enjoy every literate story and novel he writes. Lovely!

Frank Delaney scours the human character when it's one he doesn't like, and he did a pretty good scrub job with this one. I disliked the guy/druid just as much as Frank did, and the story kept me reading to the end. Fables are very black and white a lot of the time -- the bad and very bad, the good are very good, and hopefully there's always a hero nearby to save the day. While the reader knows this and it makes the ending fairly predictable, it's the writing that carries him along until he can smack his lips with satisfaction at the end.

A fast and enjoyable read. I liked it enough to go back and take another look at this author. It was not citchy Irish, which was great. The Druid was a jerk but seemed to understand how to make the best of his failed situation.

Delaney's enchantment is the real deal. He is a storyteller of the finest order and this short but somehow complex little tale about a dishonest Druid opens a portal to a long ago time and shows us how little human nature has really changed.

This is a typical Frank Delaney book. And in saying that, i am saying it is wonderful!! In addition to this series i highly recommend Ireland, The Story Teller and Tipperary.
