The ancient Celts sang of many heroes, but of none more so than Cunolugus of the Bituriges. His birth was shrouded in death and the druids foretold of a short but glorious life. He grew to become the greatest warrior among the Celtic tribes, loving only battle and wanting to obtain eternal glory. Yet he was also plagued by the memory of his dead father...until he met Glasta, and finally found peace and happiness. But Medua, queen of the Aedui, whose lust for power knew no bounds, threatens all that Cunolugus holds dear.
The Song of Cunolugus is written as if it were an epic of the ancient Gauls, which means that the narrative is fast-paced and draws influences from other Celtic epic tales and mythology. My intention in writing the book was to create an epic hero for the Gauls on the same par as the Irish Cuchulainn. There are no myths or epics that have come down to us from the Gauls because they were an oral culture, and this book attempts to give their lost myths and legends a voice.
