Darrion a Tale of Tir Athair by Marissa Ames

Darrion, a tale of Tir Athair

Marissa Ames

reviewed by Karmin


Book description (amazon.com)

A short story set in the world of Tir Athair. The first time Darrion struck her, Lana loaded her wagon and left Cynegil. Two-year-olds should not hit like that. She draped the windows of her cottage with dense cloth and worked by a single candle. If she timed her flight well, she could pass through the market during changing of the guard. In another era, under another king’s reign, Lana would have rejoiced that Darrion had inherited his father’s gift. Now, if Lana does not present her son to the king, she could lose her head.



A short story of a mother’s struggle to keep her mage-gifted son safe, Ames quickly sucks you into the sadness that is covering the land. The story bounces between past and present seamlessly and you quickly come to love the characters within and it is a great lead-up to Ames’ newly released novel Minstrel (to be reviewed within the next month!). If you’re looking for a story that will give you a glimmer of hope, this is definitely worth the $1!
