Review : Conor Kelly’s Legends of Ireland by Ali Isaac

26630630This is a truly wonderful book: It has fairy kings, goddesses, mortals, magic, swordmanship, mythology and a huge dose of courage.
It is clear from page one how much love and passion the author has for legends in all of their glory and doom.
For me, one not too familiar with the ancient Irish legends, the appendix proved useful to put everything into a time frame and context.
With this my limitations were overcome and I had great fun reading the stories. Some are set in Ireland long before the recording of history has begun, with plenty of mythology, until we reach the point of actual recorded history. Then we move into the 300 A.D. and further on even.
Isaac is clearly familiar with her material and writes elegant and beautiful prose.
A very enchanting book that taught me a lot as well.
