In the Last Danann by Victoria Saccenti, we meet an eons-old Tuatha Dé Warrior, Kailen. We see short memories starting in Thebes, Southern Egypt, 1000BC, when he visits Khnurn, a wizard charged with keeping the universe's balance. Kailen cannot join his people as they leave the earthly plane but has been given orders that occupy him for millennia. Khnurn assures him that he will find someone to fill his heart. In one of the many battles Kailen faces with his Masters, the Westerbergs, his beloved Nadrine is killed. Kailen believes his heart will never again belong to someone. When a shocking kidnapping occurs, Kailen must team up with Khnurn's apprentice Talaith. Neither of them ever thought they would ignite such intense feelings of love and protection for each other. However, her unknown origins still hang over them as the couple joins the other Titanians in a fight against two very evil death sorcerers.
The Last Danann by Victoria Saccenti is an exquisitely written piece of literature with exceptional descriptions and lavishly chosen words to convey the sense of awe inspired by the characters in the novel. The world of the supernaturals - superimposed and woven through the ordinary world - is exquisitely done. It leaves the reader dumb-struck at the beauty of the world seen through supernatural eyes. The diminished use of eroticism substantiates the novel's plot and balances the story as it unfolds. A well-crafted world supports the storyline. This is an excellent book. The language and tone are of the highest standard and add to the powerful characters that walk through the halls of the Chronicles. Enough background detail of previous events is given so that The Last Danann can be read either as a stand-alone or as part of the Titanian Chronicles.
