In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, I’m offering a copy of “The Last Days of Magic” by Mark Tompkins, for giveaway. Plus, Viking-Penguin is throwing in a unique deck of super tarot cards. Please leave a comment telling me what you do to celebrate this special holiday. The winner will win both book and deck of tarot cards. Win/win. I will choose one winner on Monday, March20. Good luck of the Irish to you! Only U.S. addresses, please, and not P.O. boxes, as usual.
Spanning the forests and villages of 14th-century Ireland, the lavish courts of France and England, the Vatican’s inner chambers and present-day mysteries, THE LAST DAYS OF MAGIC blends historical, fictional, and mythical events to create a richly imagined world and an exhilarating story of adventure and enchantment. Ireland is the last magical outpost on Earth, its Middle Kingdom—home to faeries and otherworldly beings—still strong in the face of the Vatican’s ever-expanding influence, its armies, exorcists and mercenaries. But when an ancient treaty between the Celts and faeries is broken, leaving them vulnerable to the machinations of the power-hungry Roman Church, the very existence of magic in the world is threatened.
