This book is available free to my readers. It’s a special gift for those of you who enjoyed book one and want to know more about Ciarán mac Diarmuid and the crew of Quite Possibly Alien.
To save the living he must wake the dead.
Seanscéal means ‘old story.’ Like a parable, or a fable, but generally more long-winded. It’s like… entertainment, but often with something meant to be learned hidden inside. Not only is it good fun, but sharing a seanscéal is also a way of getting around the not-waking-the-dead custom.
And that’s exactly what Ciarán does, three times, skirting custom to explain:
How he won a posting to the Freeman Merchant Academy.
How he and his cat, the mong hu Wisp, first met.
How he learned the Iron Rule and the enduring cost of that lesson.
It’s no small thing, breaking with custom. But when the price of ignorance is measured in lives?
Someone has to speak up.
Note: The events of this story take place between books one and two of the Freeman Universe series. (There are spoilers.)
Book one, Quite Possibly Alien, is available in print and Kindle Unlimited.
