FullSizeRender-10November 1st saw the start of the second stage of the SPFBO – the Self Published Fantasy Blog off organised by Mark Lawrence.  All the details can be found here.

Today I’m highlighting the fifth book that I will be reading for the SPFBO.  All the books have been drawn randomly. Book No 1: Shadow Soul by Caitlyn Davis, review here.  Second book Paternus by Dyrk Ashton (review here).  My third book was the The Grey Bastards by Jonathan French.  The fourth book was Larcourt K A Krantz ( Fire Born, Blood Blessed #1) My review to follow shortly.  The next book chosen is Defence of Ráth Bládhma (Fionn mac Cumhaill #1) by Brian O’Sullivan – check it out here:

fionnIreland: 192 A.D. A time of strife and treachery. Political ambition and inter-tribal conflict has set the country on edge, testing the strength of long-established alliances.

Following their victory over Clann Baoiscne at the battle of Cnucha, Clann Morna are hungry for power. Meanwhile, a mysterious war party roams the ‘Great Wild’ and a ruthless magician is intent on murder.

In the secluded valley of Glenn Ceo, disgraced druid Bodhmall and her lover Liath Luachra have successfully avoided the bloodshed for many years. Now, the arrival of a pregnant refugee threatens the peace they have created together.

Based on the ancient Fenian Cycle texts, the Fionn mac Cumhaill Series recounts the fascinating and pulse-pounding tale of the birth and adventures of Ireland’s greatest hero, Fionn mac Cumhaill.

    Can’t say I’m a huge fan of the cover… WHAT is she doing wearing an outfit like that as a fighter? Other than catching her death and being in imminent danger of popping out of her boob tube-thingummy?

      is that a tube top? And what is making her hair stand up that way? Some serious amounts of gel methinks.

      • @lynnsbooks

        I was wondering about the costume and the hair – not really that practical – imagine if that slips down well you’re mid battle! *blushes*

    • @lynnsbooks

      These comments are too funny! Yes, that costume is highly impractical I must admit – a boob tube to battle!

    Good luck! And lol at the above comments on her outfit. I agree, talk about impractical armor! My guess is, it is trying for the Keira Knightley look in the movie King Arthur? Her “warrior” costume in that film is pretty much exactly like that.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I was thinking of the King Arthur film too. You might as well draw bullseyes on your body seeing as you’re leaving it all out there so vulnerable! I must say this one got off to a good start and I’m about 20 % in so hope that continues.
