It is a time of invasion, it is a time of adventure.
In the sixteenth century, Granuaile, warrior and leader, was the terror of the North Atlantic and the most feared woman in Ireland, controlling huge parts of the west coast in defiance of the British Empire. Heading a large army and a fleet of ships, she lived by trading and raiding and demanding tribute from all who sailed through her territory.
Headstrong and rebellious Granuaile knew true nature of leadership. She defied the old ways to sail in and eventually lead her father's fleet even though she was a woman and finally confronted Elizabeth Tudor herself. Follow the astounding and sometimes tragic tale of Ireland's own Queen of Storms brought to stunning life in this beautiful graphic novel.
