Morgan le Fay - King Arthur's sister, and his worst enemy - was a teenage girl once. How did she become the most powerful witch in legend?

"This has the darkness of Celtic magic ... and a poetic terseness that suits its stern, passionate hero."     The Toronto Star

Shortlisted for a Quebec Writers Federation Award.

Britain, 480 AD. Saxon barbarians are invading, pushing the civilized British out of their own island. Morgan is the daughter of the governor of Cornwall. But when her father is murdered and her mother taken as the Uther Pendragon's new wife, she has to flee to Ireland to avoid being murdered herself.

But Ireland is no refuge. She's captured in a slave raid and sold to a village witch. As Morgan comes of age, she discovers her own magical powers. She falls in love with a young Irish chieftain, and makes him powerful.

But will her drive for revenge destroy her one chance for happiness?
