Lawhead takes a deep dive back into the Celtic world, with a saga set in pre-Christian, Bronze Age Ireland. Faeries still roam the islands and woodlands of the Emerald Isle, and various warring tribes and clans vie for power, unaware that the largest warhost the island has ever seen is about to make landfall. Inspired by the ancient Irish text, The Book of Invasions, and drawing from other myths and legends of prehistory, Eirlandia will have you biting your nails and counting the days until the last book's release.
Ravaged by barbarian Scálda forces, the last hope for Eirlandia lies with the island’s warring tribes.
Wrongly cast out of his tribe, Conor, the first-born son of the Celtic king, embarks on a dangerous mission to prove his innocence.
What he discovers will change Eirlandia forever. For the Scálda have captured the mystical Fae to use as an ultimate weapon.
And Conor’s own people have joined in the invasion.

Conor and his sword companions must leave the safety of the faéry kingdom for the barbarian Scálda threaten to overrun Eirlandia.
As he fights for his people’s survival, Conor discovers that several of the clan leaders have betrayed their nation by aiding the Scálda. The corruption is such that Conor and his men choose to become outcasts, clan-less and open to attack by friend and foe alike.
They form their own warband...and the beginning of a legend as Conor unites the common people of Eirlandia to drive the poison from their land.
