I previously listened to An Trodai: Scolai. I was unaware then, that this is a series. I wish I could edit my review of Scolai since, I now know it’s abrupt ending just leads into this book.
This series seems to be the story of the legacy of a family of warriors. For a historical fiction book, there is not a lot a detail about the everyday life in the times it is set in. This is more like the bio of some warriors and leaders, and their battles within conflicts that truly happened in history. It is a good story that is condensed and short (that’s surely why not much is invested in describing more of their situation). I felt more connected to the main characters in this book, than in the previous one.
The same narrator is used for both books and I enjoyed the rendition he provided. His use of accents was pleasant, his female voices were well done and he brought out the characters personalities well. I would listen again to another story by this narrator.
There are no explicit sex scenes or excessive violence or swearing.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and voluntarily left this unbiased review.

AnTrodai: Loahaire written by John Breen Wren
Narrated by Meral Mathews
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
The historical events in this story are actual events. It is an exciting history if now well known.
Wren traces the history using the fictionalized family lines beginning with Daigh’s grandmother has a prophetic dream predicting that the sons of the family were destined to become great warriors.
Through the warriors’ struggles, falls and continued family, we see history unfold as the historical sons of Cennetig rise and fall to rule the tribes of Ireland. The battles are retold in a narrative style. The stories are exciting, however if the story was revisited and the characters further developed with more dialog and more guiding the reader to visualize the scenes the story could well become a grand novel.
I gave this a 4/5 because historically it is sound and the story is a good one.
I believe Meral Mathews narrated the story well for the material and style.
