Throw it a -side. Couldn't get in to it. ( )

A masterpiece of myth-inspired epic fantasy. My only complaint is that at 200,000 words, it is too short. I wanted to linger in this world (an Ireland of the distant past that never was). ( )

Book description
    WHEN THE WORLD WAS YOUNG THIS OTHER IRELAND WAS ALREADY OLD.

Every ninth year a great snow elk appears on Eirinn's mountaintops. Unless it dies by sacred spear before sunrise of Beltaine Day, when the wheel of the world turns over, the balance between Light and Dark,m and thus all hope of magic, will be lost.

And once lost, gone forever.

Every ninth year must Eirinn choose a champion. This year it is the bard, Blackthorn, more at ease with a verse than a spear, who will stalk the dream-stag through lough and fen. And a dream- love awaits the bard as well: the beautiful and doom Roisin Dubh, whose touch will scare his heart with strange new fire.
