Overview

The first verse in the Lay of Slaine Mac Roth

Tir-Nan-Og - a land of savage beauty where fierce warrior tribes fight for land, cattle and honour. Fate can be seen in every aspect of life in this kingdom, but none more so than in Slaine Mac Roth, son of the Sessair.

Struggling to come to terms with his warrior's gift, the Warp Spasm, the young Slaine gets his first taste of bloody battle when his kinsmen raid a rival tribe. But with fate guiding his path, Slaine's epic journey is just about to begin.

Disappointing and disjointed. I wanted a lot more Celtic bloodshed and bone breaking.Scenes just came one after the other, characters and plotlines came and went. Second act really bogged down with the farming/rutting stuff. (why wasn't he breaking heads in a rage?)Arrival of Ukko the shifty dwarf made the third act more interesting. Felt like an attempt at an episodic novel but didn't hold together.I am still interested in the sequel - mostly because this novel just came to a stop rather than a proper ending.
