THE COLD ONES: A Tale of Ancient Ireland


Where Old Gods meet New… a Legend is Born…

Ireland in the Dark Ages is a land of extremes… clan versus clan, light versus dark…

Patricius is a man of God, a Christian bent on bringing a new Light of Faith to the remote land where he was once a slave. It is a harsh and primitive land, though, and he soon finds himself confronted with suspicious minds, dangerous foes, and unbelievable creatures that challenge the very heart of his Faith.

To save our world, Christian and Druid, human and fae, must unite, and wage an epic battle to drive the darkest of evils from the Emerald Isle, and from the World.
