The first volume of an exquisitely drawn and thoroughly researched gothic thriller/historical whodunnit series set in the Age of the Saints.

There is turmoil in the 5th century Celtic periphery of Europe; an age of change at the end of the Roman Empire, and an age of conflict between peoples and religions. Oppressed by Saxons to the east, many of the Celts of Britain have colonised Armorica in Gaul, bringing with them the spiritual leaders of their Celtic Church, the monks. The new faith heralds the demise of the old pagan way of life, but the ancient traditions still hold on.

Gwynlan, the last of the Druids, and his apprentice Taran are caught in a mysterious battle for survival against the monks of the church, monastic foes who place dangerous and menacing obstacles in their path. Accusations of murder, sacrifice and sorcery are rife, but the old gods are at hand to assist the righteous.

Publisher's comments: 'In this series, the protagonists (i.e the Celtic Britons and Armoricans) speak a language - English - which hadn't yet developed in the 5th Century in which the series is set. Nonetheless, so many people who weren't able to read the Welsh editions [also published by Dalen] were asking for an English translation we thought we could oblige, so you'll now be able to follow the dark and gothic nature of druid Gwynlan's investigation into the murder of monastic brothers through the medium of what the Welsh call the thin language' .
