A pulse-pounding adventure, Rose’s book will appeal to readers for a simple reason: “It overflows with impassioned excitement,” she says.

In her new fantasy novel "Desires: A Legacy Novel” (published by Abbott Press) author R. Rose dips into the well of Celtic myth to tell an adventurous tale of warriors and gods. Celtic art by Jen Delyth graces the interior, while the work of fantasy artist Julie Fain adorns the cover.

Rose describes her novel as a thrilling story of passion, betrayal, malevolence and magic conjured from the depths of an ancient Irish legend. “Otherworld vengeance is carving a bloody path through the mortal realm,” she writes. “Will a young queen from an Otherworld bloodline and two mortal warriors be able to stop it?”

An excerpt from “Desires”:

“Badhe gave a short bow to Morrigan before she had headed back down the hall. Morrigan tossed her raven black hair over her shoulder. She was not a Goddess to be trifled with; Dagda would regret his insult to her for all of eternity. Her desire to rip the still beating heart from Brighid’s chest was only matched by her desire to see the Mortal Realm blanketed in blood. As always, the Goddess of Uncontrollable Lust would get what she desired . . . she would stake her immortal soul on it.”

A pulse-pounding adventure, Rose’s book will appeal to readers for a simple reason: "It overflows with impassioned excitement," she says.
