Dethalissicus by Chelsea Brooke

Title: "Dethalissicus: The Parting of the Worlds"
Author: Chelsea Brooke
You can find this book here: Amazon (Kindle Edition)

Author's description:

Dethas, an orphan living in early Engla', is captured by pirates and taken to Eire. Among a series of harrowing adventures, Dethas learns who she is, where the Tuatha Dé Danaan have disappeared to and becomes involved in the Great War between the sons of Cruithne of the Picts and Lord Vortigern of Engla'. 
"The story I remembered about my mother was always short and full of holes. She never had a wedding gown, but she was beautiful. Her eyes were like pieces of the sea, if the sea could become a rock and turn into stones. She could make a thief or a traitor confess what he had done and throw himself off a cliff, into those sea-eyes. Her lips were like flowers and like blood, virginal and terrible. She wore white, even when she traveled across the country on foot to find her people, even in the dark woods where she stood out like a skull shining in the moon. Her dress, like her, never seemed to wear from the traveling, as if she walked just barely above the loam, a small moth with feathery feet. And maybe she did, for she was one of the Tuatha Dé Danaan, one of the lost people, one of the people with strange powers and long lives."
