The Sons of Mil long held the dream of the Island of Destiny close to their hearts. A dream perhaps, but to these restless, adventuring people it was a shining emerald prize to be won by those who were brave or foolhardy enough to sail to the very ends of the known world.

For the Bard Amergin and his people that dream comes true. When they land safely on the shores of this enchanted isle, they know that they have won the favor of their gods. In joy, they begin to build their settlement. Soon it is clear that they are not alone in this green and pleasant l∧ their fellow inhabitants are the secretive Danu, a people who resonate power and mystery in abundance.

As Amergin negotiates with the Danu so that both peoples may peacefully share the island's wealth, he sees their beauty, their wisdom, and their love for the land. And one more thing.

Amergin's second sight shows him that the Danu are not human.

I liked this book, all things considered. It was interesting and well-researched. Her explanations for the strangeness and variations within the tales of "little people" was something I honestly hadn't expected when I picked up this book. I still recommend it.
