Review on Age of Saints from Historical Novel Society

Have a look at the lovely new review from Anna Bennett at the Historical Novel Society!

Sixth-century Ireland springs to life in Christy Nicholas’ Age of Saints, a tapestry of historical detail woven with Irish fairy tales and folklore. Conall is a 17-year-old boy with a sister he loves, a stepfather whose temper he attempts to avoid, and a magical brooch his father left in his care before disappearing in the night. When stepfather Sétna’s violence reaches unprecedented heights, Conall and his sister, Lainn, run for their lives, beginning an adventure that will take them further than either could imagine. Surviving the perilous winter conditions will be just the start: from a Faerie Queen and the maddening tricks of her people to the unpredictable consequences of each decision they make along the way, Conall and Lainn will need to rely on their wits, survival skills, and the mysterious magic of a Druid’s brooch.

Where to buy Age of Saints

 

On his deathbed, Conall’s father makes him promise to always take care of his little sister, Lainn. With her laughter, she can sing the bees from their hives and make the morning sun sparkle in the winter. He loves Lainn with all his heart, and will do anything to protect her, even without a promise to his father.

He failed.

Between an abusive step-father, a powerful Faerie Queen, and a maddened Fae Lord, every decision Conall makes seems to be the wrong one. Starvation, imprisonment, madness, and disfigurement plagues them. Even when he tries following his heart, it turns to disaster.

Can Conall correct his mistakes and save Lainn’s life and soul?

Will it cost him his own?

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.
