Born to eight warrior witches on an isle in the Celtic Otherworld, Maeve meets her match at druid school in Esus (Jesus), a charismatic foreign exchange student from Galilee. In a breathless tale that includes incest, rape, betrayal and defiance, Maeve saves Jesus from being made a human sacrifice at great cost to herself. After she gives birth to a child by rape, she is exiled, put to sea in a boat without oar or sail.
