Historical or alternate history fantasy, probably suitable for early teens and up.

A retelling of the eviction of the Fomorians from Ireland by the Tuatha Dé Danann under Lug, where the Fomorians are depicted as survivors of a (hinted) nuclear catastrophe, their population a mix of somewhat healthy inhabitants of a decaying hi-tech island arcology, and deformed mutants used as out-and-about thugs enforcing their rule and bolstering the indigenous sellout king.

OK, not great. ( )
