Bridei applies himself to learning, unaware that a secret council of elders, including Broichan, has long been working on plans for the future of their divided homeland, and that Bridei himself is central to their strategy.When a baby girl is left on the doorstep one winters night, Bridei thanks the gods for sending him a companion to share his lonely existence in the remote household. But Tualas arrival spells a perilous complication to Broichans master plan. As Bridei moves ever closer to his grand destiny, and as Tuala grows from fey child to beguiling young woman, powerful forces turn against the secret council, enemies who will stop at nothing to foil the druids plan, even if they must endanger Brideis life.Juliet Marillier is among the most skilled of fantasy writers–Sara DouglassThe Dark Mirror fulfils all the requirements of fantasy literature.
