The sequel to the critically acclaimed The Children of Gods and Fighting Men, The Words of Kings and Prophets is a powerful historical fantasy novel by Shauna Lawless, set in war-torn medieval Ireland. Power fades but fire endures... Ireland, 1000 AD. Clouds of war gather for mortals and immortals alike as the Irish kingdoms strive for supremacy. Gormflaith, unhappy queen of Brian Boru, schemes to destroy the Descendants, sworn enemies of her Fomorian kind. As her plans take an unexpected turn, Gormflaith discovers her magic is more powerful than she ever realised - but at what cost? Descendant healer Fodla dwells disguised in the mortal world, seeking to protect her young nephew - but the boy has secrets of his own. Fodla must do all in her power to keep him hidden from those who would use him for evil. When a mysterious man comes to King Brian's court, his presence could spell disaster for both Gormflaith and Fodla - and for Ireland herself. For he is Tomas, an ambitious immortal - and he will do anything to see his plans become reality... 'A fine piece of storytelling.' Mark Lawrence 'Utterly magical and completely captivating.'
