In 50 BCE, Morrigan, the goddess of war, has become restless as a long-lasting peace settles over Ireland. Deciding the time of peace must end, she chooses Setanta, the nephew of the king of the north, to become her ward. After a young Setanta slays the demon-hound of Cullan, he becomes known as C Cullan-The Hound of Cullan. As C Cullan grows older, it is apparent that an extraordinary power lies within him... and a great darkness. When he chooses the quiet life of a farmer over the sword, Morrigan, angry at the betrayal, instigates an invasion of his homeland and C Cullan must challenge fate itself to keep the goddess at bay.
