In a voice that soothes and informs, Tim Gerard Reynolds draws listeners into this meticulously researched novel of Ireland, circa 2200 B.C.E. Reynolds develops a host of characters at the dawn of the Bronze Age peaceful "Starwatchers" trying to understand their universe through interpreting messages from the stars and warlike invaders from Europe who search for metals they can use to produce stronger weapons. Juggling myriad facts from astronomy and modern archaeology, Reynolds manages to create believable characters who express their doubts, fears, longings, and hopes, never sounding preachy or pedantic. The novel starts and ends in modern times, providing listeners with a reference point even as the graceful prose, fascinating plot, and seamless narration transport them far back in time.
