THE LEGENDS DON'T DIE …
No one alive knows more about legendary Ireland and its people than American archaeologist Keenan MacBreed. Yet what he is about to undergo lies far beyond the knowledge of any mortal soul. MacBreed is vacationing in his ancestral home to explore his Celtic roots—only to discover a timeless evil uprooted from deep within the earth.
… AND THE DEAD DON'T DIE
Outside the small town of Carrick-on-Suir, in burial grounds older than a millennium, beneath elaborately ornamented stone crosses that speak of lost but awesome rituals … they have arisen. Victims of an age-old savagery as terrifying as their powers of magic, they're women who seek to cloak their dry, bleached bones with the flesh of the living, then free hundreds of others of their clan from the black, dirt-choked sleep of centuries. Desperate to stop them, and guided only by a hobbled old woman whose eccentricities mask a source of mystical strength all her own, MacBreed takes one bold step beyond the world of the rational—into a realm of ancient sorcery more potent, more horrifying than death itself.
