Title: The Morrigan’s Daughter
Author: Susan Krinard
Rating Out of 5: 4 (Really good read!)
Format: Short story
Publisher: Running Press
5th sentence, 74th page: In time, Seanat gave birth to a girl-child, whom she and Aodhan named Brighid in honour of the lady who had saved them.
Seanat runs into her worn enemy at the end of a long and wearying battle. But there is something compelling about him, and a momentary decision could end up hautning her for the rest of her life.
This was a fun, easy, and sweet bit of a read. Quite romantic, with the hint of Irish history and folklore to make things so much more interesting and intriguing. The use of Morrigan and Brighid help to build upon this sense of eerie familiarity in an entirely new world.
This wasn’t the kind of romance that really plucked at my heart strings. It wasn’t one that pulled me in, and even writing this, I’m finding it quite unmemorable. But it was nice. Sweet, easy and short. Straight to the point and quick. Cute and beautiful.
