A Parliament of Monsters
 

Authored by Gail Caress

Could Ireland spawn the beginning of the end? In 1999 the young Irish-American widow of a brilliant linguist stumbles into the center of a hellish scheme seeking to unite neo-Paganism with the ethereal domain of cyberspace. Claire O'Connell is wounded by grief and by infirmity, yet she must take her small and gifted son Patrick on a journey across countries, oceans and cultures, pursued and lured by ruthless enemies, betrayed by friends and helped by a mysterious man in black whose motives she cannot quite trust.

Meanwhile the boy Patrick, with flashes of intuition and maturity beyond his years, is sought by influential powers in Ireland to help work their evil, yet protected like his ancient namesake for a mission of destiny.

From South Carolina to Chicago and on to a convent in backwoods Tennessee, from Dublin to a final larger-than-life showdown in the West of Ireland, A Parliament of Monsters weaves a modern-day mythic tale in which ordinary individuals and storied nations struggle to find their ordained significance.

This book reaches toward a broad, mostly college-educated audience, from college age to senior citizens who remember World War II, to men and women who love classic thrillers and those who appreciate intelligent fiction. Readers who question what's behind the scenes of current events, those who have questioned their faith or know someone who has, parents and adult children who've experienced generational struggles, those who have dealt with serious illness or loss, people who are attracted to the esoteric-codes and secret languages--and readers who love myth and math will all be drawn to this tale.
