PROLOGUE

 

AD 882
Diarmuid Ua Duibne was the most renowned warrior of the Tuatha De Danaan ofIreland. There lived no fiercer fighter, and his sword, Great Fury, was the terror ofhis enemies.His birth date is not known, but his mortal life spanned centuries. WhileDiarmuid lived for battle, most of his trouble stemmed not from his perilousvocation but from his propensity for falling in love. And, in fact, his decision to runaway with the promised wife of his chief, Finn mac Cumhaill, led to his exile fromthe Danaan and eventually caused his death.After his death, Diarmuid lived as an immortal in Faery and sometimes evenwalked the green hills of Ireland, appearing as no more than a shadow except to hisown kind and to the fairy seers among the Irish people. During this time, hesuffered his most potent love dart, and as a result of that fated event—for reasonsknown only to him and to the object of his love—he conspired with the last livingdruid to cast a spell that exiled all the races of Faery from Ireland.The spell came to be called Diarmuid’s Seal.
