Day Five of the Conor Kelly and The Fenian King Mini Blog Tour | Author CL Deards Living in Alternate Realities


Day Five has followed hard on the heels of yesterday’s Mini Blog Tour stop over on the lovely Karen’s blog, My Train of Thoughts On...

Hope you enjoyed the words of wisdom spouted by my characters from my new book Conor Kelly and The Fenian King; Annalee, Conor Kelly, and Sorcha. If you want to know more about them, you’ll have to buy the book, hehe! It’s available just about everywhere this Monday 14th July.

Seriously, did I mention my new book? It’s called Conor Kelly and The Fenian King, in case you hadn’t heard!


TFK-medIt’s happened again. Somehow, Sidhe-Princess Annalee has embroiled Conor in another hopeless quest on behalf of her people, Ireland’s fairy folk, the Sidhe. Last time, he very nearly got himself killed. This time, things look even worse.

For a start, Annalee can’t help him. She’s been imprisoned, accused of murdering her own father. The people of the magical realm are at war amongst themselves, whilst Tir na Nog crumbles into the sea and disaster strikes.

The sacred sisterhood of the Morrigan has arisen, wreaking havoc and destruction which threatens not only the future of the magical realm, but the world of mortals too. The Morrigan must be stopped, but how? The heroes of old are all long gone.

Conor Kelly is just a boy in a wheelchair, but with the help of feisty side-kick Ciara, his drop-out cousin, Conor sets out in search of the mysterious Fenian King, prophecied of old to awake from his slumber beneath the green hills of Ireland, and ride to the aid of his people in their hour of greatest need.

Along the way, Conor unearths a personal secret which undermines all he has believed about his own identity, throwing him deep into confusion. Floundering in the darkness of uncertainty and fear, the mortal boy must dig deep if he is to overcome his demons and save his friends.

However, the search for the Fenian King is anything but easy. Known by the name of Fionn mac Cumhall, his exploits as leader of legendary war-band, the Fianna, are still told with awe today.

So just where do you start your search for Ireland’s greatest hero? Well, first you google it, of course. Then you ask the cat…

Book Two of The Tir na Nog Trilogy continues this epic fantasy adventure which takes us back in time to the shadowy past of Ireland’s long lost legend, where fairy kings and Gods walk amongst mortals, and where feats of magic, swordsmanship and courage were customary.


Today, the Conor Kelly and The Fenian King Mini Blog Tour is stopping off at the blog of author CL Deards Living in Alternate Realities. I knew I was going to like Chris and his writing from the very first line of his ‘About’ page; go check it out for yourself! Chris is hard at work on his epic fantasy novel right now, but kindly took time out of his busy schedule to host an exclusive Chapter Reveal from my new yet to be released new book newly available from the new books section of all online retailers from Monday 14th July! Thanks so much, Chris, and over to you!

Don’t forget to join me for Day Six right here on http://www.aliisaacstoryteller tomorrow for my Meet The Main Character blog post… see you then!

  1. The ongoing tease continues πŸ™‚ Not sure about the Morrigan being bad, I always quite liked her out of all the ancient deities. I have always wondered why none of the great Irish sagas have not made it onto the big screen? Perhaps when you sell the movie rights for this it may generate some interest πŸ™‚


    • I think she was more misunderstood than bad, but she nust kinda developed that way in my book, because she was willing to do whatever it took, no matter how misguided, to achieve her goal, which she saw as ultimately being to the good of all her people. I always wondered if she was actually an older deity, much like Mananan, who got absorbed into the tales of tbe Denann. To me, she doesnt quite fit…


    • I think some may have made it into the movies, but they were obscure low budget trashy affairs that got nowhere… trying to think… I saw it on a forum somewhere…

      Of course when I do sell my movie rights, you will have to come and do all the photography for the films! Gotta show Ireland in its best light…


      • With all these greek and norse based hero movies, I reckon Ireland could knock 50 shades out of them. FionnMacChumhaill, CuChullian, Lugh, FΓ³dla, Lir, etc.

        For sure I’ll be there, but I might be tempted to do some Combat/Stunt co-ordination aswell πŸ™‚


        • Cool… I’d LOVE to see that lol!

          And yeah, too true! Lets petition those damn movie makers… where have they been?!!
