The Chronicles of the Last War...
He was a Keltoran Mercenary. She was a True Healer devoted to her god. The only thing they had in common was that they were each running away from their pasts and were now thrown together on a battlefield in a kingdom torn apart by magic and war.
As Black Hunters, demons and blood mages bent on destroying humanity advance, it will take Conor, a man who wields steel as deftly as he deals words, Ethine a woman whose touch can mean life or death, and a battle mage named Michan, who knows these two will play a greater role in the fate of mankind, to save the world.
But it may actually be harder to bring Conor and Eithne together as man and wife.
Included in this collection are the short novel The Black Hunter, the novella "Willowherb" and the novelette "Wyrd."
“Laura Underwood takes threads from ancient Celtic tales and reweaves them in her own bright tapestry with her Keltoran tales of the kingdom of Ard-Taebh. Bogies and bloodmages, magic and battles, all fashion a compelling background for vivid characters like Eithne and Conor. The three tales here are sure to please anyone who loves rollicking fantasy adventure at its most entertaining.
— Sherwood Smith
Laura creates her own engaging Celtic myth and history in characters and stories that stick with you long after the last page has been turned and the book returned with a reluctant sigh to the bookshelf.
— Melisa Michaels, author of Sister to the Rain (Roc)
World building so engaging and believable one expects to find these places — and people! — in the history books.
