The debut novel of this prolific writer, this story is the grail legend told from an Irish point of view.

Cormac McDermot is to be king after his father, the ailing doddering man who is bewitched by the evil Finnabair. But first he must find the grail cup, the magic cup, with only his wits, his faithful dog, Podragic, and his bondwoman (slave) Brigid, who has made an enemy of the queen-witch.

Adventures abound, and magic is afoot as Cormac, the High King, fights to find the magic princess and the magic cup. Will he survive to find the cup, or will Finnabair destroy the kingdom of Ireland?
Who is the magic princess?

A love story with a twist.

A couple of quotes worth remembering:
"Waiting is praying." (found throughout the novel, mostly uttered by Brigid)
"Mercy is harder than hatred." (p. 232)
Read a library copy...but still in josierivers' possession

Well this went along with several others including 3 series in a box I was sending to bookdrunkard. Box was taken from the mailbox by 2 dudes in a UHaul pickup truck and I just confirmed today that it was not my Friday Mailman that took it.... I'm heartbroken..... don't even know what status to choose so I will leave in travelling
