Product description


Not your run of the mill Irish myth.
A Bhikku's Tale really captures a unique universe, an alternate Ireland which sweeps and smoulders with hidden creatures and mythical beings.
Dragons, gods and even dream snatching. A quest that is fruitful for any reader.
Superbly written, which helps conjures fantastical images and expands the imagination. A great (dragon’s?) tail…

M C Ryan

Handsome little book. Well written and enjoyable to read. Very 'Cork' but this story can be enjoyed by any fantasy literature fan.

Bryan Jordan


A Bhikku’s Tale isn’t your ordinary fable. While it combines mythology from all over the world, the story weaves through Inis Fail, a fantasy version of Ireland. I will say: when I first started reading this one, I assumed it would be a standard, olden fairy tale, so to speak, until I was stopped dead in my tracks just a few pages in, when Reilly mentions some personal love time, and getting dressed in a Star Wars shirt.

Yep. I’m all in now.

Written in the vein of American Gods, David R. Jordan’s A Bhikku’s Tale is a quick romp through a land rife with stories– in fact, I’d love to see the tale expanded upon, as I can certainly see the characters in more adventures. The story itself is slyly crafted, and much of the Irish mythology knowledge comes from first-hand experience: the author is actually based in Cork, Ireland.

I’m not saying he’s met a Celtic God, but he might have spied on one.

From shamans to Celtic horned god Cernunnos, Chinese dragons to Morpheo, the god of dreams, A Bhikku’s Tale encapsulates it all. Overall, I was pleased with reading A Bhikku’s Tale. With a diverse mixture of pantheons and a straightforward writing style, I think fans of Neil Gaiman’s Gods works (American Gods, Monarch of the Glen, Black Dogs) will enjoy it, too!
