The Children of Lir continues the story from The Talisman Matrix which began the Temporal Fugue and the Space Between cycle with the discovery of the first talismans in an antique store on the earth-like world Terranova. In the new novel the Terranovan characters on all three worlds of the Talisman Matrix learn more about the powerstones and the gods and goddesses of the Tuatha de Danaan and learn about the roles they will be playing in the impending invasions from Midhir and the trans-universe. Meanwhile, the group led by the bard Finn of the Long Road works to determine the extent of the invasion from Midhir and to counter that threat while also fighting to free Gallatin from the Lord Advisor Magnus Kastro. New characters on all three worlds are introduced as the quest of save the world called Caoilte Dhu continues. Gonzalez Smith, separated from his companions, finds himself apprenticed to the legendary wizard Markand in the Mountains of Mourne. J.T. Crowe and Lisa Aubrey work to prevent more Terranovan weapons from being shipped to Midhir in alliance with Finn of the Long Road and the Thieves Clans of Gallatin Trade Town. A young prince, Conor Cullen Mac Lir, escapes from Gallatin and the Lord Advisor with the help of a mysterious presence and becomes involved in a perilous quest that may be the key to saving the world Caoilte Dhu!
About the Author
"...almost a caricature of what one sees on the back of many book jackets! I’ve tended bar; driven a cab; earned a master’s degree in Russian history from Harvard; lived in Moscow for a year researching an obscure and boring medieval churchman; sold cars and insurance; taught World History and Russian language in an alternative high school; taught Russian part-time for about five years in college; wrote a weekly muckraking column for a teachers’ union in a local labor paper; coached chess teams and directed chess tournaments; and . . . I am an avid canoeist and cyclist. Last I finally retired and was able to finish the trilogy.
If I had my druthers, I think I’d like to plug my laptop into an island up in the Boundary Waters and spend my days writing and canoeing full time. Or ride one of my bikes across China! The Talisman Matrix has been my part-time child for the last six years or so. Now I plan on returning to Caoilte Dhu, the Fairest World, and the other worlds of the Talisman Matrix full time. I have no delusions of literary grandeur – I just like to tell the stories that my fellow science-fiction geeks love to read."
