At First Light recreates the earthy, crude qualities of medieval castle life in the highlands-- lords, sans scruples, proposing lust and love… Courtly love… Ladies dressed in shimmering satin… for their dance with Satan. In the center, Fiona of Castle Baine yearns for fulfillment, seemingly unprepared for bizarre happenings… prevailing wickedness…revenge… two brothers’ rivalry and greed… mysterious plots… magical potions… murder! Will the ancient rituals of Una, the Mystic of the Swamp, succeed in coaxing the mighty spirits to protect Fiona from the secrets of the grave? Perhaps… Evil is as evil does.
This legend of deadly deceptions and eristic justice touches the inner thoughts of one tumultuous era. The ending has a turn and twist to be savored.
