First Line Fridays: The Bonfires of Beltane by Mark E. Fisher

I know. Its not actually Friday. Well, not from where I'm writing: right know its actually Saturday morning. I just didn't get the time to do my post yesterday, so better late than never, right? 

So today, I am going to share a First Line from the book I am currently reading. I was going to do a book I've finished but decided this was more current, especially since I have an audio version of it too (although the narrator's thick Irish accent is a little hard to understand at 1:90 speed). 

Beyond the sea lies ancient, Celtic Ireland, a proud land where tradition is everything and travel through the wild can mean slavery or death. There the Roman evangelist, Saint Patrick, carries a message of love, hope, and salvation — a message that threatens kingdoms, rulers, and powerful druid advisors. When Taran mac Teague join’s the fight, he promises his beloved Laurna he’ll return. But will he? Can he? Or will the realm of spiritual darkness prove too strong.

As the druids seek to remain in power and prevent the pair from changing their ancient, Celtic ways, will Taran find the price of spiritual truth and liberty more than his heart can bear?

The First Line is from Chapter 21, which I've currently reached: (an oenach means a 'fair or gathering')

The óenach would last a full week and, even before it began, clans from all over Ulster arrived and set up shelters on the outskirts of a field where much of the activity would take place.
