Overview

As the cleansing fires of Beltain burned and the villagers danced, Maere cu Llwyr witnessed the garrote murder of her parents at the hands of her father's brother. Born with the triple signs of the goddess, legend tells that whoever shares Maere's bed first will also share her healing power - and her uncle, Eugis, has vowed it will be he. With her mother and father out of his way, he hides Maere in a convent with plans to retrieve - and bed her - on her eighteenth birthday.

Maere carries no memory of the horrific events of that Beltain night. All she knows of her childhood is contained in remnants of dreams and a growing ability to heal through touch. Fearing she'll be punished for this power, she hides herself away from the scrutiny of the nuns, determined to discover the secrets of her past so she might better understand the present and where her future lies.

Dylan mac Connall, betrothed of the girl Maere, never forgot that bloody night when he saw his own father murdered as well. Having escaped capture by Eugis' men, he grows to adulthood under the tutelage of an old woman who helps him discover his own magic. But the magic does not appease his soul and he becomes consumed with hatred and plots of revenge against Eugis, becoming determined it will be he who takes Maere first.

But when Dylan enters the abbey and discovers the woman Maere has become, he finds himself taking on the role of protector when Eugis - aided by the goddess Morrigu and the Viking forces surrounding their lands - makes good on his promise and returns for Maere, setting off a series of events which can only be resolved with one of their deaths.

    Pagan Fire is a historical romance set in Ireland in the time when the worship of pagan gods was giving way to Christianity. Maere cu Llwyr is an orphan who grew up in a Christian convent, but she was born under the triple signs of the goddess. Now eighteen, she must come to grips not only with her growing magical powers, but also with Dylan mac Connall, a handsome young man whose parents were also murdered. Unlike Maere, he was raised by a woman who knew magic. Dylan is seductive and he knows more about Maere's past than she knows herself.

    Maere's Uncle Eugis wants Maere for himself. He knows the extent of her powers and plans to be the first to bed her because legends say the first to do so will share in her powers. Unknown to Maere, he had her parents and Dylan's parents killed and put her in the convent as a part of his mad plan to gain her magic. Dylan knows this and wants revenge on Eugis. Maere is caught between the two men and doesn't know who to believe.

    I'm not the sort who reads historical books,let alone historical romances. But Barnett's writing is seductive, her research is excellent, and she transports the reader back to a time when belief in magic was prevelent. A terrific read!
