Inspired by the culture, history and lore of ancient Ireland, the Priestess Trilogy will sweep you into a village on the brink of war as seen through the eyes of Shiovra, a young woman destined for greater purpose. As the branches of her family tree turn to battle-lines and friends turn to enemies in a bid to control the land of Éire, she is forced to learn how to balance love and duty, honor and justice, wisdom and heartache. As her story unfolds, Shiovra stands as witness to a world that has lost its way, and, with the help of her sworn protector Odhrán, must find a way to steer them back from self destruction. This trilogy does contain some adult situations not suitable for younger teens.

Defiance
Book One

Shiovra has been named High Priestess of the village Tara, but she quickly finds herself hunted by the Milidh, a clan born of war and vengeance. With the safety of Tara at stake, it is decided that she is to seek aid from her betrothed, one she considers the enemy. At her side is Odhrán, a Milidh warrior sworn to protect her and determined to gain her trust. But their journey is fraught with peril and Shiovra learns that darkness lurks in the hearts of her own kin. Steeped in ancient Irish myth, this tale is spun of love, war, and DEFIANCE.

Betrayal
Book Two

Shiovra, High Priestess of the village Tara, is set to wed one considered the enemy for the sake of her clan. Torn between her heart and her people, between love and duty, Shiovra decides her fate and faces the truth about Odhrán. Still hunted by both the Milidh clan and her own kin, she learns that not all enemies are quite what they seem. Loyalty is brought into question and power lost within enemy ranks in what shall ultimately lead to one thing: BETRAYAL.

Eclipse
Book Three

Tensions escalate between two clans, threatening their fragile peace. On one side stand the Túath, on the other the Milidh. The prize: control of the land of Éire. Yet amidst this brewing conflict, another more dangerous threat looms. The village of Tara is ripped apart, not by war, but by the seed of betrayal as the priestess' own kinswoman, Gráinne, conspires to seize control. Enemies shall become allies and Shiovra is faced with a difficult choice, one that will ultimately engulf her world in an irreversible ECLIPSE.
