The Last Days of Magic
Short Book Description
Published by Penguin Random House

In this sweeping novel of the struggle to reign over magic’s last outpost on the earth, history and legend combine to illuminate a vivid drama of magical and worldly beings—faeries, druids, kings, mercenaries, and the Vatican.

"The book does not suffer from any lack of plot or incident, nor of vivid, articulate writing...it’s an honest, beautifully detailed book and an entertaining read"
—THE WASHINGTON POST

One of “The Best New Books.” “A fantastical treat.”
—PEOPLE MAGAZINE

“The Last Days of Magic is intricate, bold and memorable long after you put it down. It succeeds in bringing magic and mythology to life and . . . delivers a shimmer of optimism and the possibility that magic is not quite dead.”
—NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

“A heady brew of Celtic and Biblical mythology with late medieval political intrigue and warfare. . . . Tompkins combines deft characterization with treachery, battle, magic, and hints of Dan Brown.”
—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"In The Last Days of Magic Mark Tompkins has woven together a beautiful tapestry, the warp and weft a tumultuous crossing of pagan faith and Christian fervour, of all that was and all that would come to be…” 5 out of 5 stars
—SAN FRANCISCO REVIEW OF BOOKS

“A half-goddess, a Vatican mercenary, kings, queens, warriors, and faery creatures battle for control of Ireland in this historical fantasy adventure. . . . Tompkins creates an intriguing world stocked with colorful characters and rich with biblical and mythological allusions.”
—KIRKUS REVIEWS

“Plundering the treasure chest of human myths, from mysterious biblical giants to ferocious Celtic faeries, Tompkins has created a fantasy adventure with the shifting perspectives of dreamscape. A novel rich and strange.”
