Third in the Firelord series. Saint Patrick is renowned throughout the Western world for bringing the word of God to the heathen pagans of Great Britain. But who was the man behind the myth? In this book, noted fantasy writer Parke Godwin combines Christian legend, Celtic folklore and mysticism to create a magical and mythical portrait of Ireland's patron saint.

I found this story immensely enjoyable: if you like the Celtic faerie tales, this one is particularly moving. Even if you aren't particularly into the Celts, you might enjoy the Church history in it (it involves Saint Patrick of Ireland.) It's a story in a vague vein related to the Mists of Avalon, but I enjoyed it far more.
