Druids, Celts, Mad Kings, Oh My! Check Out THE LAST DAYS OF MAGIC by Mark Tompkins

So, The Last Days of Magic by Mark Tompkins looks pretty awesome, and it’s coming up in March 2016 from Viking. Here’s the scoop!

About the book:

An epic novel of magic and mysticism, Celts and faeries, mad kings and Druids, stalwart warriors and the goddess struggling to reign over magic’s last outpost on the Earth

Aisling is a goddess in a human form, born to rule medieval Ireland and reunite the earthly realm with the Middle Kingdom—home to powerful faeries. With her counselor, Liam, and her lover, Conor, she stands between warring clans of Celts, Vikings, and darkly magical otherworldly beings. Meanwhile, even greater forces muster beyond Ireland’s enchanted shores. Jordan, a Vatican commander and clandestine student of forbidden magic, is already torn between duty and desire when he meets Najia, his captive, and a slave. Beneath the chains and spells that bind her, she is an enchantress who draws him closer to what he loves. But the Vatican and England have given Jordan a crucial role in a war they are determined to win—the battle to drive magic from Ireland, and all lands, forever. As kings prepare and exorcists gather in Rome, Aisling, Jordan, and Najia must come to terms with powers given and withheld—and a world that can foster magic hangs in the balance. Loyalties are tested and betrayals sown, yet the coming battle is not to be the last. The repercussions for magical beings ripple centuries later, in today’s world.

    I’m not familiar with the author but this sounds wonderful. I think I’ll give it a try.
