For the sake of peace, Brigid of the Tuatha
dé Danann enters into an arranged
marriage with Bres, the next chieftain of
the enemy Fomorians, whoseiron weapons
and brute strength challenge Danann magic.
Brigid is told to spy for her people and keep the
source of their powers secret - dangerous
tasks that complicate her desire to make the
best of her forced union.
Scared, but determined to make the marriage
work to save her people from annihilation,
Brigid faces the Fomorians alone. She begins to
suspect that her husband is breaking the truce
through lies and political manipulation and she
soon discovers betrayals on both sides. When
Bres's tyranny threatens the very existence of
the Danann, Brigid must risk her life to unseat
him from power.
Set in a time when myths were reality, Once
a Goddess brings the legend of Ireland's magical
Tuatha dé Danann to life.
