My husband recommended the series to me and I've got hooked after reading the first in the series. Kindle don't have all the books in the series so I'll have to search our local library for the missing ones. Apart from the well written and very interesting individual plots, I most loved learning about early Irish traditions and their forward thinking society structure. Maybe sometime in the next several hundred years we Brits might just about become as enlightened as the Irish of the 600s. Especially how women were treated equally to men and how their justice laws were conducted.

Shame it all must have all been swept away after their Celtic-Christian beliefs were outlawed by the strong onslaught of Catholic Christendom that swept through Europe in later years and we rushed headlong into the Dark Ages.
