"Celtic Star Rising is filled with intriguing characters, well delineated, and contains a wealth of wisdom culled from great and ancient sources. The story is involving and the ending is both satisfying and exciting." Ardath Mayhar, award winning author Played against a background of late 19th Century theatre life, Celtic Star Rising is the story of Will Foster as he becomes a Celtic magician. A pageant of love, murder, magic, and intrigue, it sweeps from farms to showboats; through theatres from Pittsburgh to Salt Lake City. Ancient and modern traditions unfold as Druids, an Irish priest of two religions, the shade of an Indian shaman, sorcerers, Irish nationalists, actors, riverboat captains, and Mormon pioneers march through a grand tapestry that roars to a final confrontation between Will and the powers of evil.
