On the summit of the fabled Irish mountain known as Slievenamon there is a gate to an ancient land of immense and terrifying power. Hidden to most humans, the gate of Feimhin has lain closed for centuries, the secret of its opening long lost.
But now Alan, Kate, Mark, and Mo-four orphans of vastly different backgrounds, drawn together by forces they barely understand-must pass through the portal to face their destinies. What they find beyond is the enchanted but war-ravaged world of Tir, a strange and dangerous land peopled by beings of magic. Here death waits at every corner, and the four new arrivals must learn to fight if they are to survive.
And they'd better learn quickly, because the powerful Tyrant of the Wastelands, whose fearsome Death Legion stalks the land, will destroy anything and anyone standing in the way of his plan to become the overlord of Tir.
