Princes of Air: The Blurb

Yesterday, someone asked for the cover blurb for Princes of Air. I don’t have the official blurb yet, but this is the one that I came up with for the query letter (have I mentioned I hate writing blurbs? And synopsi?)

Here ’tis, the unofficial blurb for Princes of Air:

Long ago, the Raven-Goddess Morrigan bore nine sons; each of them was gifted by their mother with the ability to change their shape and fly as ravens. Their mother charged them with the task of protecting the people of Eire, and gave them each a gift — the ability to recognize their one true mate.

Niall, the youngest of the nine, believes his mate lost forever, and discovers how wrong he is when he is taken captive by Arlaith, a power-mad woman who seeks to overthrow the High King. Arlaith’s plans unleash an ancient evil that threatens the people, the land itself, and any hope of happiness that Niall and his brothers might have.

The path to finding a mate isn’t always easy. The brothers soon discover that if they want to find the ones with whom they’ll spend the rest of forever, they’re going to need more than their mother’s gift — that is, assuming that they can manage to survive long enough to defeat an undead monster with a taste for immortal blood.

So, there’s a bit of a taste.  As we get closer to release date (and be sure I’ll let you know when that is!), I’ll get some excerpts up.
