The Rock of Achill

Jim Sheehan

Published October 2020 By Newman Springs Publishing
350 pages

“An Irish tale you’ve never been told.
As the last days of mythical Ireland draw to a close, experience the collision of the magical and early-nineteenth-century worlds. Through foamy seas, holy knights of a former age sail for glory and God. With witches, demons, dancing faeries, and a mischievous clurichaun, this historical fantasy is sure to awaken your heart.”

A historical romance that delves into the world of thrilling adventure, this book has a little bit of everything for any reader to enjoy. Yearning for just a little more most nights I stayed up late to quench the craving only this book could offer. I fell in love with Donn and his adoration for Bridget, I fought for them and their love, for a happy ending that would be so deserved. Without spoiling the tale I can only attest to the intricate storytelling that Jim Sheehan has mastered. With a Tolkien flare for narration, he captured the perfect amount of epic fantasy to transport me to 1800’s Ireland. Fighting the fights and feeling every anguish right along with the characters. Between sailing and sword flights to magic and faeries, this story has anything and everything an adventurer could ask for. Sure to please anyone, I give this book a 5 out of 5 and can not wait to see what Jim shares with us next.
