Mona Jones has been on the run all her life without really knowing why. Her parents were murdered, and now, at twenty-one, her uncle and protector is dead too... This dramatic chain of events compels Mona to spend time amid a Welsh-speaking community in Ynys Mon, also known as Anglesey. It is here that her druidic ancestry begins to emerge, identified more quickly by those around her. Attacked by an enemy druid, Mona quickly finds herself at the centre of an intense druid civil war. Branded with 'the mark', she unleashes her power, only to discover she also has a terrible weakness. Mona quickly finds herself drawn to the warrior Cai, but they are soon separated when the community's fleet is lured out to sea by the threat of an Irish attack. With the Welsh druids convinced she is a spy working amongst them, Mona's uncontrollable power explodes for a second time. The Welsh druids must decide if Mona is their saviour or their destroyer. A fast-moving, contemporary action story, Hiraeth is a trilogy inspired by the ancient Celtic texts of the Mabinogion and the Ulster Cycle. The story has been woven into an epic power struggle, which straddles myth, Celtic identity and adventure.
