Love or betrayal, duty or desire - the right choice should be easy.
Sometimes the right choice is a mistake.
The ancient standing stones on theTor are dangerous. Legends say the Stones can snatch the unwary into the Otherworld. Rumour has it that this was the fate of Elen, one-time heir to the throne of Erintír .
Thirty years later, in the midst of civil war, the Gate-Stones spit out a mysterious foreigner.
Nyani's homeland is further from Erintír than can be measured in miles. Grieving for her dead husband, she’s discovered that ultimately, her mother Elen is to blame for her loss. Now she is seeking both revenge and absolution for her mother’s mistakes.
Donn’s entire life has been shaped by Erintír's conflict with the renegade druid, Athairne. It’s a fight Donn intends to win.
Thrown together by chance and the Gate-Stones, Nyani and Donn are both keeping dangerous secrets. Unaware of the true consequences, each makes a fateful choice - and discovers even the best of intentions can go horribly awry.
And there are other, unseen forces to contend with. Forces that come from far beyond the Seventh Gate.
***Inspired by Celtic mythology, this is the story of two people each struggling to define their own identity and find their life’s course, in the process discovering one another.
