For Finn MacCullen, it's time to Irish up.With a shout, Finn held the spear aloft. Come along, ye manky beasties, he yelled, throwing every bit of Gideon-ness he could into his voice. I've a wee point to share with ye! Gripping the end of the shaft in both hands, he swung it around and around over his head, creating a whistling sound. Faugh a ballagh! The Spear! Goblin voices screeched in panic. The Spear of the Tuatha De Danaan!Yeah, you got that right! Finn yelled back.When a power-crazed sorceress and the neighborhood pack of beast-like goblins team up and threaten both his master and his friends, thirteen-year-old Finn (not Finnegan) MacCullen does the only thing an apprentice monster hunter can do: he takes the fight to the enemy. And woe to the foe he meets along the way.
