The Throne of Tara by John Desjarlais

Based on the true story of Columba of Iona, the hot-headed Irish monk who dueled the druids, miracles versus magic.... The warrior blood of Erin's royal line pulsed through his veins, but he was called to a higher battle. As Crimthann, the Wolf, would he become the High King of Ireland, fulfilling his father's ambitions? Or as Colum, the dove, would he be a scholar in the Church, fulfilling his mother's prayers? The Throne of Tara is based on the thrilling true story of Columba of Iona, the best man the 6th Century could produce: a prince, poet, scholar, soldier, and holy man gifted with a thunderous voice, a prodigious memory, and the powers of Second Sight. Yet his pride and temper led him into battle over a disputed manuscript, and in remorse over the thousands slain, he entered exit among the savage Picts, where he dueled the druids—miracles versus magic.
