Will it destroy them, or will they find the strength to fight what’s coming?

The Indie Author Life

Roxanna Rose knows that the ancient Northern Ireland legends can be a little daunting at first, especially if you are new to them.

So she has posted short bios of her main characters on her website:

Dagda (the “good god” or “skillful father god”) – The “good” part of his name refers, not to a moral standpoint, but more to his skill and expertise in all things. He is associated with the magical cauldron from the Otherworld…

Brighid (Daughter of Dagda) – A goddess of Inspiration. It was thought, in some legends that the Dagda had three daughters all named Brighid. Other legends speak of the “triple goddess aspect” of Brighid…

Morrigan (The Phantom Queen) – Often depicted with the huge black wings of a crow. She is the goddess of war, of battle, of fury; a bringer of fear and panic…

… and others. See the complete page here.
