The sequel to Morgan Llywelyn's glorious Celtic fantasy, Druids, The Greener Shore is a beautifully told adventure story. After Julius Caesar triumphs over Gaul, the druid Ainvar and his three wives sail west to the brilliant green island of Hibernia. Here, Ainvar and his clan try to reestablish themselves.
Ainvar's "senior" wife, Briga, provides constant wisdom and support for him. Strong, sensible, and with druidic powers of her own, Briga overcomes all obstacles. Listeners who appreciate strong female characters will love this woman of the druids.
The sequel to Druids finds Anivar and his clan looking for a new home after the invasion of Julius Caesar. Knowing the rich background of this clan adds richness to this audio but is not essential to make this an interesting listen. Simon Vance, in stentorian tones, sets the stage for this adventure story with the brief prologue. Moving into the narrative voice of Anivar, Vance becomes the leader of the clan, a strong man with moments of personal insight and sensitivity who strives to preserve his culture in a new world. Vance's characterizations of other characters are well rounded and effective, providing breadth while maintaining the focus on Anivar.
"Not just fantasy fans will appreciate this gentle, quietly dignified tale." (Publishers Weekly)
