Patricia Kennealy-Morrison was born in New York City and has lived there for most of her life. Blackmantle is her seventh Keltiad book; the next will be The Deer's Cry. She is the author of The Keltiad; her novels include The Silver Branch and The Hedge of Mist. In 1970 she married Jim Morrison, lead singer of The Doors; her memoir Strange Days: My Life With and Without Jim Morrison has been called "the first good book on Jim Morrison" (New York Daily News).

Patricia Kennealy-Morrison just keeps getting better and better. As a longtime reader and admirer of The Keltiad, I am happy to say this is a welcome addition to the series indeed!

Personally, I felt as if it were merely a vehicle for the author to solidify some statements about her own tragic timeline. I have always felt sad about those times for her, and thought she was taken advantage of by modern Fir Bolc, those pigs in the forest. Anyway, thank you, Patricia, I learned a lot about my own < ? > Celtic forebears and enjoyed all of the Keltiad. Not one of the books allowed me to avoid tears, at least once !

One of the best fantasy stories out there. Well written. Only downfall,is that it isn't on Kindle.

A while back , I read all of the books in this series. I couldn't get enough. I loved every bit of Aeron's story, and if Arthur and Brendan's were a little bit less my taste, well, I attributed that to liking female characters better in general.
And then came Blackmantle. Oh, Blackmantle. How I loved your epic first half - you know, the one where Athyn went out and grew up and saved the world and all that jazz. That first half is the reason I give this book four stars.
The second half certainly brought in shades of Ms Kennealy-Morrison's apparently tumultuous love life, and I can see how that would be off-putting to some, but I don't think that was the problem. The problem, I think, is that Athyn, who had been so focused on justice, had had such a gift for it, suddenly turned to petty vengeance. Some of that long hunt was just unnecessary. Okay, a lot of it. This is why the book doesn't get five stars.
Please take my comments on the second part with a grain of salt, however - a lot of my problems with it stem not from what I saw as character derailment, but from the sudden total centralization on Morric. As I mentioned, I usually like female characters, so it makes me a little bit irritated to realize that Athyn's entire life apparently revolved around Morric - not her country, not her family, not her friends. Morric. Morric, Morric, Morric. It's like the Brady bunch without the happy family.
That makes it sound like, despite my four star rating, I don't like the book. But I do. The first half is one of my favorite things ever, and that's why I recommend this book loudly and often: because Athyn, for all her faults, is a strong heroine who works to free her family and her people from the oppression of an invading people, and come on. Who wouldn't like that?

As Patricia Kennealy-Morrison will tell anyone who listens, she once was briefly wed to Doors frontman Jim Morrison. But she rewrites her own love life in "Blackmantle," a messy and rather dizzying fantasy novel, which is too vengeful and wild to be enjoyable in its own right.

Imagine her autobiography "Strange Days," but with a lot more murder.

Athyn was born on a battlefield to a dying mystery woman, and was brought back home as a foundling by one of the surviving warriors. Years later, she is cast out of her family's home by her cruel foster brother, and goes on to become a legendary brehon. Then she discovers the shocking truth -- she is actually the hereditary queen of Keltia.

During this time, she also falls in love with famed bard Morric Douglass. Eventually the two are married, as Athyn drives out the Firvolgi invaders. But the beautiful junkie Amzalsunëa is still obsessed with Morric, and poisons him when he comes to comfort her. Now Athyn goes on a rampage against anyone who wronged Morric -- and then goes into the underworld itself, to challenge the god of death.

At first glance, "Blackmantle" sounds like a sci-fi version of the Orpheus legend. But it becomes clear after a short time that this is a therapy session put to paper, where Kennealy-Morrison can get revenge on all the people in her life who have ticked her off, then live happily ever after with an idealized, faithful Morrison. It gets a little stomach-turning, in more than one way.

It certainly doesn't help that Athyn -- Kennealy-Morrison's glorified alter ego -- is such a nasty person. At one point, she skins and debones several men for trivial slights; she also hunts down and beheads Morric's ex-girlfriend, who is a parodic copy of Morrison's longtime girlfriend Pamela Courson. Not to mention the brutal racism toward the Incomers, whose sole flaw seems to be that they are not Kelts. By the last third of the book, it's hard not to wish that a meteor would crush Athyn.

Kennealy-Morrison has an admittedly pretty style, with plenty of description and some truly interesting scene, particularly her vision of the Underworld. It does get a bit exaggerated in its faux-Celtic (faux-Keltic?) atmosphere at times. Unfortunately, it's bogged down by too much talking from Athyn, too much adoration of the plastic Morric, and too much sneering at the absurd parody of Courson.

Reality and fantasy collide with a nasty splat in "Blackmantle." In the end, it seems merely like a way for Kennealy-Morrison to get back at Courson and the Doors in fiction, as she could not do in life.
