Music is in Colin Doyle’s blood. As much as his parents wish for him to finish college, the pull of his music is even stronger. It is almost like Ireland is calling him home, and her voice is getting stronger every day.

Centuries ago the Morrígan was a fierce and formidable goddess. As time has passed so have her identities, as well as her believers. Maeve Gallagher now fears her people will be doomed if she cannot summon her strength to open the portal.

The stone Colin now carries once belonged to his grandfather, and since arriving in Ireland it has almost taken on a force of its own. Maeve solidifies that feeling, although there is a darkness about her that unnerves him. As much as Maeve wishes differently, she needs Colin to open the portal for her people to survive. His consent is an absolute necessity for it to work, being completely honest with him is not, but Maeve’s feelings are waging war with her duty.

There is something so otherworldly about Ireland and its rich history, and this author does a beautiful job of tying it in with a contemporary storyline. Colin’s path is riddled with obstacles. And while his journey is never easy, he cannot give up on his dream. In Maeve’s case, her course is regrettably clear, and she has little choice but to follow it. This story’s imagery is incredibly vivid, and its voice is so hauntingly beautiful I would love to actually hear its soundtrack!
