Weaves Celtic history, legend, myth, and magic into an altogether wonderful read. I recommend this book to those who enjoy fantasy and suspense with a healthy dollop of romance added to the mix. N J Gee Amazon Reviewer
Bracelet contains all the elements we expect in a great story: adventure, romance, courage, mystery, enchanted forests, a mystical quest, and the kind of characters whose adventures we love to share. David Evans Amazon Reviewer
The Druid and the Bracelet' succeeds at what so many fantasy novels fail at -- creating a world that on the one hand is filled with magic, gods and faeries, druids and monsters . . . and yet still feels as real as the world outside my front door. WindChaser Amazon Reviewer
It’s 55 AD in the quiet west of Scotland. Villagers farm in the shadow of an eery forest. A forest that draws men to it. Men who do not return.
A dead chief returns to warn of approaching menace
A deep, black loch hides a lead sarcophagus quivering with frustration.
A girl with a strange bracelet disappears. Her brothers, a Druid and a Warrior, vow to find her, search a chief’s grave, and turn to the dark forest, where a faerie directs them to the loch…
They rescue a captivating young woman, buried alive by the monstrous Master of the Vates. He plans to burn children, yet one, Andra, is strangely mature, quietly unafraid. She shares her name with the mythical Queen of the Dragons.
And there’s the mystery of the faerie bracelet made of jet...
The beautiful glens of Western Scotland are the background for this story of magic, dragons, faeries, and ravenous hunger, confined for a millennium.
With excitement, humour, romance, and authentic detail, The Druid and the Bracelet brings the ancient Celts to vivid life.
Rewritten and enlarged in this 2018 edition!
'The Druid and the Bracelet' was written before 'Antler Jinny and the Raven', but rewritten after that book was completed. It is more of a fantasy, where 'Antler Jinny and the Raven', while a fantasy, is more character-driven. They share some characters including Druid Lailoken, Erbert the Ogre, and Grizel the faerie. You can read the books in either order, but both are enthralling, and having read one, you WILL want to read the other!
