Fianna has never recovered from Connell divorcing her after three memorable months of marriage, so she had tried to stay away from him and his people as much as possible, but a Viking attack on her own settlement leaves her with little choice but to seek his assistance for the good of her people and in the hopes that warning him of the threat will safeguard their son, Lorcan. Now that he’s out from under his father’s thumb, Connell sees it as his opportunity to make up for past mistakes and seize his chance to make things right. This story takes place in 9th Century Ireland, and a lot of what happened to separate Connell and Fianna in the first place had to do with politics. An interesting glimpse into early Irish society. Fianna was such a strong character, moving ahead with determination even when things got tough. Made me wish Connell had shown a little more backbone when they were younger, but I guess better late than never. This is a fairly short story, and only covers a few days events. Fun, adventurous read, with a great heroine!
