Kirwan's Son

423 pages6 hours


Stories—that's all they are. Passed down from generation to generation of Kirwans, the stories tell of the pact between the Kirwan ancestor and the Fey King Fin Bheara. But the stories are real and when the call comes, all four Kirwan siblings go to Fin Bheara's aid to help free the Fey.

In a world of tortured tree nymphs and madness, the Fey king needs only one Kirwan, the eldest son, to save the trapped Fey, but all four Kirwans become pawns in the struggle for power between Seelie and Unseelie. 

The Kirwans will risk everything—love, honor, and life—in the name of an oath taken centuries earlier, but will it be at the cost of spreading the Fey war to their own world?

About Marcelle Dubé:

Marcelle Dubé writes mystery, science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary fiction. She grew up near Montreal and after trying out a number of different provinces (not to mention Belgium) she settled in the Yukon, where people outnumber carnivores, but not by much.

In Kirwan's Son, the four O'Rourke siblings and their estranged friend Grace suddenly find themselves in a world that—until now—belonged in the realm of family myth. They learn all too quickly that the myth is all too real, and all too deadly. Readers who enjoy strong characters thrown into unusual situations will love Kirwan's Son. 

Dubé's SFF novels include Backli's Ford, Epidemic, Jilimar, and Obeah.
