Excerpt from book:

Night
 
 
December 30, 1602. Doire na Fola, the Oakwood of Blood
 
The people had been waiting for almost a week while skirmishes were fought all around them. Some had traveled more than twenty miles at their chieftain's summons, bringing their families and what remained of their possessions. They had left the doors of their abandoned homes ajar. Locks and bolts were useless now.
They were gathered in darkness in the dense oak forest that covered a steep hillside beyond Gleann Garbh, the Rugged Glen. Their journey to this destination had been hazardous. The enemy was everywhere, and there were few roads. They had had to make their way across a wild and broken terrain, clawing through woodland and furze, wading boggy ooze.
Now there was nothing to do but wait for the morrow. Their bellies cramped with hunger. Provisions were running low. They could not resupply themselves until they found allies, and who could say when that might be.
It was beginning to seem as if every hand was raised against them in the land that had been theirs for two thousand years.
They were of the Gaelic race of the fretted peninsulas and mountainous coastline of west Cork, in southwestern Ireland. A beautiful place. A place they might never see again.
* * *
Niall sat at one end of a fallen tree, with the fingers of his right hand thrust into his mouth for warmth. His left hand was burrowed into his right armpit. He felt, rather than saw, someone sit heavily on the other end of the log.
A surly voice said, "This place is as dark as the inside of a rock."
Niall took his fingers from his mouth. "It is that, Ronan. And cold beside."
"Is that you, Niall?"
"It is myself."
"We are going to be a lot colder in the north, if we get there."
"We will get there, please God. The O'Sullivan has promised."
"We were promised victory at Kinsale," the other man snarled.
There was no answer to be given. Niall put his fingers back into his mouth. They were his harping fingers and he was careful with them.
Someone coughed nearby. A fretful child whimpered.
A face came swimming out of the gloom, becoming a pale gray oval hanging in space in front of Niall. "Have you any food to spare?" a woman's voice asked. "Not for myself, but I have a sick child who is crying for more to eat."
"We are all crying for more to eat," Ronan said. His tone made it plain that he did not intend to share whatever he might have.
"There is a bit of cheese in my pack," Niall offered.
"Bless you!" The woman reached out with trembling hands.
Ronan said, "Apply to The O'Sullivan if you need more food. I suspect he has quantities of it packed away for his personal use."
"I would not dream of asking the prince!" The woman sounded shocked. Niall could not tell if it was because of the suggestion itself, or the inference that The O'Sullivan was hoarding selfishly.
"Where is the commander?" Niall asked Ronan.
"Down below on the glen road, conferring with some guides who just arrived from the Musketry mountains."
"Guides?"
"Of course, guides. We need local people to lead us through the worst of the mountain passes."
The woman said in a small voice, "My child is not able for mountains, he is too weak."
"Then leave him behind," said Ronan.
"You are a monster!" the woman accused.
"Ssshhh," hissed someone nearby in the darkness. "We are trying to sleep, here."
"I have to get ba
The history of Ireland is studded with tragedies, but none is more poignant, or more decisive, that the battle of Kinsale. There the Gaelic nobility who held sway over Ireland for two thousand years were finally and resolutely crushed by the English invaders. There would follow four hundred years of English domination.

The Last Prince is Donal Cam O'Sullivan, still determined after the battle not to surrender his homeland. He flees with his clan toward an inland stronghold, as the Gaelic nation is ripped apart not only by war but by the seed of betrayal planted by the English, whose powerful bribes turn brother against brother. The awesome saga of Donal Cam and his clan's winter journey is a powerful vision of honor and betrayal, pride and desperation. Morgan Llywelyn captures the heart of the Irish struggle to survive.
