The Paradise War is the first in a Celtic fantasy trilogy featuring an American graduate student at Oxford who is drawn into a world beyond his own where he finds his life changed forever. One morning Lewis’ roommate Simon reads about an aurochs supposedly discovered in a Scottish field and immediately drags his friend on an epic roadtrip across the Isle of Britain to visit the site. Lewis suspects he’s up to something but doesn’t quite know what. He’s still not quite sure at the end of the book even after he’s followed after Simon through a cairn and into another world. There Lewis becomes a warrior for the side of good, but finds his tensions with Simon only grow larger in time.
A fun Celtic fantasy, highly recommended for fans of the genre.
