The battle between the Tuatha de Danann and the Fomorians had raged more than a week. The first time my people fought on this grassy plain, we vanquished the Fir Bolg in a matter of days. With their mother Domnu’s aid, the Fomorians had developed from sea raiders into formidable warriors. Their strategy proved more subtle too. Where the Fir Bolg had relied on the brute force allowed by their bulk, the Fomorians used strategy, trickery, even espionage. When we started this war, we hadn’t foreseen the same easy triumph as the First Battle of Moytura, but neither had we expected to be teetering on the brink of defeat.
Years of oppressive taxation and forced labor under Fomorian rule had weakened us. And the Fomorians possessed a superior weapon: the enormous eye of their King Balor. When levered open by the long poles of his attendants, blinding, fiery light arced from the iris, consuming everything in its abhorrent glare. Anything Balor’s gaze touched, it burned. Trees. Wildlife.
Until two nights ago, we’d held our own, for we had a secret. Each night, we solemnly collected our dead from the battlefield and placed them in the Dagdha’s marvelous cauldron. One by one we let them lie for a moment coiled around the bottom, then we lifted them free and stretched them out side by side. By morning they were awake. Ready to fight again. Resurrection was how we pushed the Fomorian lines back each day because we never truly lost our warriors.
Until two nights ago. Domnu’s children discovered our secret, crept into our encampment under cover of night, and cracked the cauldron.
