My Thor's Day Viking Reading

Mac Liam by Renee Vincent
A tortured soul
Breandán Mac Liam, the strapping young hunter from Ireland’s lush forests, is in love with Mara, an ineligible beautiful princess. For seven long years, he has been vividly haunted by her memory, taunted by the throes of his heartache. And not even the thought of her marriage to a Northman can extinguish the fierce, burning desire running rampant through his heart and soul.

An innocent heart
Mara, the spirited Connacht princess, has no idea she is the object of the Irishman’s longing. She is living out her days on Inis Mór, raising a troubled son and trying to endure the cruel loneliness that afflicts her.

A deadly secret
Ordered by the king on his deathbed, Breandán must return to Mara and bring her through the perilous lands of Connacht to fulfill her father’s last dying wish. But as their worlds collide, Breandán not only finds himself wrapped in the arms of Mara’s embrace, but thrown into a struggle to defend his honor.

With Mara caught between the family she loves and the father she knows, can Breandán uncover the mystery of her past and still protect her from a secret that threatens them all? 

In an interview author Renee Vincent was asked if her books should be read in order. Here is Renee's answer; "Mac Liam is not a stand alone novel. It begins where Ræliksen left off, only seven years later. And there are things in Ræliksen that are brought up, but not resolved until Mac Liam. Without that knowledge, the reader may be lost, or at the least, may not understand the full impact of the climactic ending."

The Fall of Rain: Book Three of the Emerald Isle Trilogy  is due to be released in December 2011. In an  interview earlier this year Renee gave us a little hint as to what the readers can expect from The Fall of Rain - " it connects with Ræliksen in some way. While I do not necessarily have goals to write a prequel of Ræliksen, I do not think that this floating “story line” will disappoint you – especially if you are wanting more of Dægan."

Thank you for the link and thanks so much for giving us Breandán and Mara's love story. I bet soon there will be more designs added to the blanket Thordia and Lillemor made for Breandán and Mara.
