Source: The History Girls. Castleden, Rodney. Read More. An alleged autobiography of one of the brats of Midir the Proud. An intellectual nerdy kid from that obviously dysfunctional family of Midir and Fuamnach who becomes Irish psychopomp. The series does eventually go to the lowest common denominator here and there, it's not honed to perfection, but some might consider it fun reading.

I love the sea and could image myself as a mermaid type creature capturing the heart of a handsome human male and luring him to join me under the sea.
If I choose I can live among the humans on land, but I know the call of the sea would would make me want to return to my home beneath the waves. I would never be lonely for I could always lure another handsome human male anytime I like! Linda — Merrows are fascinating mythological creatures. I think there is an old Scottish legend about a giant merrow who was cast onto the island of Alba.
She was nearly feet long and had flowing long hair. Thanks for joining in our contest and for your wonderful comment.

I am new to your blog and look forward to getting to know you more. Betty — It is lovely to hear how you cherish our Irish roots. I hope you enjoy my ramblings and my take on all things Irish and Irish American. So glad you found my little corner of the world wide web.
Ancient Irish history is fascinating. I have to say I enjoyed the series i just recently bought the last two books when the last book came out.
A Guide to Irish Folk Tales
The first one just captivated me into its story so i just had to finish the series. Well appears everyone has pretty much discussed all my favorites. Although I do have a favorite author who must have had a visit from a banshee in November. That is when Anne McCaffrey passed away. I was saddened I will no longer get to read her tales. I was doing research on Norse, Irish and Icelandic mystical beings and recently came across these scary folks the Beserkers.
I have incorporated them in my novel I am working. I do so love your books Sophie. When I lived in Iceland is where I started writing and dreaming vividly. I love sagas and folklore. Native American folklore is wonderful too. Then I read about them when I was given a book on Icelandic folklore.
Icelanders have Irish blood and viking blood so they love their hidden folk as they call the Fae or mystical beings. Keep on writing your books are fabulous.
click Wendy — I think the Banshees have been busy over the past few years, because many of my favorite Irish authors have passed away. Anne McCaffrey passed away in Maeve Binchy just last year. I will miss all of their wonderful words, and treasure their published works. Wishing you every success with your writing. Your works sound fascinating. Best wishes and thanks for your wonderful comments. Wow time goes quickly. I did not realize it had been a year. I look at all her books with such fondness.
They got me though so many lonely times with all our moves. Thank you I love this blog. I will look up your work. Wendy — My books are not yet published. I keep writing and rewriting and belong to a wonderful critique group. Keeping my fingers crossed that I can one day get my stories published.
