Comments Beara: Dark Legends (Beara Trilogy, #1)

  • Jonathan Michael

    Beara: Dark Legends by Brian O'SullivanBook One of a TrilogyEvery once in a long while, there comes a book that is totally absorbing, from start to finish, one of those books that you don't want to end. “Beara: Dark Legends” by Brian O'Sullivan, is just such a book. Ireland has always punched well above her weight for her relatively tiny population, particularly in literature, and this novel is no exception. The author, a native of Cork, Ireland, but presently residing in Wellington, New Zea [...]

    I just finished this book late last night and I have to admit it's probably the most original Irish thriller cum historical novel cum mystery novel I've read in years. As an Irish American with a love of Irish mythology, I must admit I'm somewhat biased in terms of the subject matter but this book is still a worthy read for those without my particular interests.The story concerns a reclusive Irish historian called Mos O'Suilleabhain (or, O'Sullivan, although the character in question would proba [...]


  • Patrick O'connor

    An enjoyable read. The main character, Muiris O’Suilleabhain, is a mixture of scholar, recluse, mystic, and street-wise battler with a tendency to settle disputes with his fists. The line-up of other characters includes a shadowy love interest, a kindly bachelor uncle, a faded academic rival, a trusted friend with computer skills, and an unsavoury collection of antiquarian-seeking baddies.There is an underlying sense of two layers of reality, accentuated by frequent use of Gaelic, a language o [...]


  • Morgan

    Dark Legends tells two stories, both set in West Cork, Ireland, alternating between 1968 and 2008. It is a thriller, with Irish history, folklore, language and humour woven throughout. The author's passion for these topics is obvious and enriches the story beyond measure. I enjoyed the 1968 storyline especially; the evolving relationship between Diarmuid and his unexpected ward is moving and beautifully written, the mystery they face engrossing and genuinely chilling. If Dark Legends consisted o [...]


  • Andrea

    I've never been to Ireland, but felt transported by this book, which clearly portrayed the feeling of another land. I read the book slowly, as it was so beautifully written I wanted to absorb each word, in spite of an intriguing plot which made me want to rush on and find out what happened!The book is written in two alternating time periods, the simplicity and mysticism of 1960s rural Ireland is a counterpoint to the hustle and bustle of current day. The plot unfolds enticingly in front of the r [...]


  • Alison

    In his website at Irishimbasbooks, author Brian O'Sullivan explains that he is passionate about Irish culture and language, and wants to educate people about Irish culture. With Beara: Dark Legends, he has certainly achieved that. The Irish language, landscape and history is elegantly woven into the story and gives it depth and purpose.However, the main star is the story and the storytelling. Two stories are told in parallel - that of Mos O'Suilleabhain, the reclusive historian, and, 45 years ea [...]


  • Anne O'Connor

    I'm not an avid reader of thrillers but I received a copy of this book to review because of the Irish element to it. I'm very glad I did because it was a great read! Funny, poignant, exciting and so quintessentially Irish. Lots of fun but also brilliant because of the ancient history that formed such a key element to the central story. I certainly know more about Irish history (or should I say prehistory) then I ever did before.The protagonist, Mos, is an exceptional creation: cynical, secretive [...]


  • Louise Mulligan

    This was an excellent book, quite intense reading for me at times, as I'm not too good with suspense which there is plenty of. Interesting characters, some very likeable, some not, and Ailbhe who I still can't quite decide on, however I'm hoping the next book of the trilogy will help me there. I really liked the way the author incorporated history and discussed the relevance that myths and legends play in oral history. I also liked the inclusion of Gaelic words and phrases, interpreted where nec [...]


  • Mike Thompson

    I really enjoyed this book – a great mixture of a strong story and strong characters, dark (some very dark) themes and evocative descriptions of the wild Irish landscape, interspersed with ancient Irish lore running throughout the book. The pace of the book slows down and speeds up as the story toggles between two story lines/time lines, reaching a breathless climax towards the end (but this is no Dan Brown novel – it’s much better than that). The reader is drawn in until the links between [...]


  • Kevin Mcnulty

    True original! It kept me captivated from start to finish. I can't wait for the next book.
