My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third book in the series, and it was an excellent addition! Ciaran and Caitlin are expecting twins and Aodhan is preparing to marry Niamh. Both are moving on with their lives like they weren’t born in the fifth century, but the past doesn’t stay buried for long. Ruadhan, their chief priest, comes back to haunt their dreams and appear periodically to them. As the brothers do their best to decipher the dreams, look for an empty tomb that could be Ruadhan’s, and protect their families from a possible devout priest of the goddess, they find themselves doubting what defies reality despite their very presence doing the same. Is the chief priest out for revenge? Is he even alive? Or are they both slowly losing touch with reality?

I am enjoying reading about these fifth century priests learning the idioms of the English language, navigating the “modern” times, and balancing their previous life with the one they are living now. The characters are all written realistically in the sense that I could see them being alive and well today. I love Ireland and how the author writes about the country and the characters. That’s what keeps bringing me back to this series!
