First, I wish you dear friends and readers, a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019!
On October 18th this past year I published the final book in my Romancing the Guardians series. A Mighty Chieftain brings the last of seven prophesies this series is based on to fruition. The cover, designed by Kim Killian, is one of my favorites.
As my New Year’s gift to you, I will share the prophesies one each day beginning with Aodhfin’s prophesy from book one, Rescuing Lara.
The Milesians draw near. They have destroyed my people, the Tuatha Dé Danann. Only I, Aodhfin, bearer of the white fire, and my council of mages remain above ground with a small force of protectors. Soon, we will join our brethren in the netherworld. Before I go, I must record one final prophesy.
Our laws forbid the Word of Danu to be written down. Yet, I was appointed to commit this sacrilege in order to preserve the Truth. She who taught me the Word entrusted me with this duty upon her deathbed, for she knew our race would not long endure above ground. At her direction, I have recorded our six greatest prophesies.
This, my own vision of the distant future, brings that number to seven. Each scroll shall be carried into hiding by one of my faithful Drui to be passed on to their children and their children’s children through ages to come. For this I have foreseen – Beyond a long darkness, from the west shall arise a mighty chieftain who will bring forth the Great Joining and open a path unto the future.
Look for the second prophesy tomorrow. Until then, Happy Reading!
