"Fabled lord of Almu and ruler of the wildwood, Fionn mac Cumhal has loyally wielded sword and spear in the service of the High King - battling the dread hosts of Faerie and human invaders alike who threaten the peace of Eriu. But now has come the bitter twilight of a noble hero. Age has weakened the champion's powers and judgment. Long denied the consolations granted to ordinary men, he has been forbidden to seek the Otherworld, where his two greatest loves reside." "But the final notes of Fionn's glorious song are yet to be sung. For though the world he knows is passing, as alliances collapse and compatriots fall, he is bound by an eternal oath to defend the land that now rejects him. And though he faces treachery, shame and blackest betrayal - and the devastating tides of magical war in Fairie - he is resolute. For he is still and ever shall be Fionn mac Cumhal - warrior, prophet, poet... the soul of Eriu. And from the terrible wreckage of his dreams he will arise victorious once more."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
