The battle was won, the storm has subsided. But the enemy has escaped, the few remaining Danann leaving Fal with a threat that leaves Ayla, Sean, Finny and Benvy in no doubt: their home of Kilnabracka is in serious danger.

All is not well in the town. It looks untouched; life goes on, with no sign of the dangerous Danann. But a storm is brewing, and the friends are being drawn into a trap, down a Spiral Path.

Only they can save themselves and the townsfolk.

About the Author

Matthew Griffin was born in Dublin and now lives in Ennis. He has garnered a reputation as one of the most eclectic graphic artists in contemporary illustration, collecting awards and accolades for his work in publishing, advertising and, in particular, the field of poster art.

His passion for visual design was always married to one for writing. His first children's novel, A Cage of Roots, was published in 2015. Storm Weaver followed the same characters further into a fantasy odyssey (2016), and The Spiral Path brings the enemy through a time portal to modern-day Ireland.

'a finale that subverts expectations at every turn ... a fast, lean and creepy adventure ... an unsettling combination of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and the scouring of the Shire section from Lord of the Rings ... both a haunting coda and sweet send-off, Matt Griffin's new offering says goodbye to his often strange and sometimes messy world with aplomb'
