Overview

Illustrated by Donald Teskey

This internationally best-selling author, winner of many awards in adult historical fiction, now turns her hand to historical fiction for children with a personalised account of the life of Brian Boru, from his childhood in the midst of a large warrior family to his final role as High King of Ireland.

'A life full of battles, intrigues, alliances and betrayals, which make a stirring tale told in realistic detail'. The Irish Times

Just a boy when he witnesses the horrors of invasion on his small clan in the west of Ireland--an attack that leaves his mother and two of his brothers dead--Brian Boru swears to one day put an end to his country's sufferings by stopping the clan wars, uniting the people of Ireland, and halting forever the threat of the Norsemen.
