Pre-Christian Irish mythology is divided into cycles; the earliest of these being the Mythological Cycle, from the Book of Invasions, and chronicles the ancient lives, loves, losses, battles, and wars of the great Celtic gods.
Now bear witness to the Irish Cycle, the epic, multi-part tale of what comes next.
If encountering a warrior woman on horseback, complete with chain mail, animal hides, and sword, menacing a red-clad leprechaun in a top hat and carrying a magic lantern didn’t blow Sean Regan’s mind—a former police detective recently busted down to patrol—the giant, bloodthirsty, attacking vulture that disappeared into a gigantic puff of smoke certainly did.
Add to that a series of bizarre murders—bodies whose very souls were sucked from them like a vacuum—those freaky October snow storms, a deadly search for an ancient Celtic artifact called Lia Fáil that could determine the fate of this world—and Others—depending on who possesses it, and oh yeah, a killing spree by what just might be a pesky vampire on the loose, all leave Regan’s grasp on reality tenuous at best.
Crap like that doesn’t happen in modern day Boston. Does it?
