His time has come…
Dark Ireland once again threatens Tara.
The Amaranths hold the sorcery and the legacy of the Wolfkings, but as Nechtan, the old ruler, lies on his deathbed, evil things begin to stir in the Chamber of Looms.
Young Theo is the only person fit to inherit Nechtan’s mantle, but evil threatens.
The cursed creature Gristlen stalks the land, its corrupted form hiding a man-monster more evil and more threatening than even the Lord of Chaos, ruler of Dark Ireland, himself.
Theo is in grave danger. It’s now up to her companions and cousin, Rumour, to risk all in an attempt to save her from this horrific foe.
With this challenge, they will face all the dark and twisted creatures who rule and live in the dark – all in an effort to save the heir to Tara’s legacy.
Sorceress is a masterful return to Rayne’s Ancient Ireland, a land where magic and evil are the order of the day, and the heroes fight insurmountable odds to protect magical Ireland’s rule. It is the fourth instalment, following Sarah Rayne’s previous novels in the Wolfking series. It was originally published under the pseudonym Bridget Wood.
