Bending The Boyne puts a new spin on Irish myth to show the lasting impact when early metal mining and traders reach ancient Ireland. The primary target audience is the historical fiction reader.
This story offers cross-over appeal for fans of the early Bronze Age, ancient astronomy, and Irish myth. 2200 BCE: Marauders invade ancient Eire seeking copper and gold. The astronomer Boann and the enigmatic Cian must use all their wits to save their people, the peaceful star watchers, from the invaders' long bronze knives and scavenging ways.
What emerges from the rubble of battle at the Boyne is a fresh take on Ireland's oldest legends.
