While exploring Clare Island with his friends Tubs and Zara, Shane Donnegan is kidnapped. He wakes up as a prisoner of the Fomorians, an ancient people who colonised the West of Ireland thousands of years ago. Now they live in a secret underground kingdom – and intruders are sentenced to death!
Can Shane trust those Fomorians who claim they want to help him? Do his strange new abilities mean he’s a Fomorian himself? And most important of all, can he escape through the vast networks of underwater caves and tunnels alive?
