Award-winning author Carla Laureano’s final novel in her medieval Celtic-inspired epic fantasy series is filled with adventure, romance, magic, faith, and superstition.

In The Sword and the Song, Conor and Aine are reunited for a short time. Meanwhile Eoghan and Conor grapple with their leadership responsibilities in light of the war. Each wants to follow Comdiu’s leading, but their paths are different. What will be asked of them to defeat the Red Druid? To save their people and win the final battle? And at what cost?

Weaving elements from Celtic history and culture, Laureano has rewritten her 2015 series with some additional material, making her epic fantasy even more engaging. She builds a believable world with strong characters and a clear battle between good and evil. Despite overwhelming odds, good triumphs, but at the cost of personal sacrifice. Her characters face betrayal, faithfulness, death, and love as they continue on their journey. The books should be read in order, as they build on one another. 

The third book is filled with more emotion, more journeys of faith, more action, more testing of their devotion to one another. From the first page, readers encounter plot twists, relatable characters, and a story that will keep them eagerly reading until the book’s conclusion. 

Recommended for Laureano’s fans, as well as fans of epic fantasy.
