    I love these books!

    My grandma gave me the first book (Dreaming the Eagle) because she knows I like historical fiction, and I was hooked. I think the characters are well written and the detail the author gives is fantastic. It can be overwhelming to read three paragraphs about how the light falls through the trees, but it's worth it! There are a lot of characters involved and their names can be tricky, but the author provides a pronounciation guide and how they're involved to the story. I think if I hadn't read the first book I would be clueless to the backstory, but it would still be a good read. The author doesn't do a lot of backtracking, she'll touch on a memory that will provide you with some backstory but not very often. The book is well written and I honestly couldn't put it down. If you don't like a bit of fantasy mixed with your history then I wouldn't recommend this book, but overall the whole series is a good read.

    solid Warrior Queen historical tale

    In AD 57 Britannia, Breaca of Mona agrees with what others including the Roman Standard Bearer Vindex have said that fighting alone means eventual defeat. However, uniting the tribes against the brutal outsiders seems impossible especially since her potentially best ally her brother Ban the Valerius lingers in prison. Ironically in spite of her sibling switching sides several times betraying his people and the Romans, he remains her only hope to help her unite the still bickering clans even after fourteen years of occupation by Emperor Claudius¿ legions. --- Over the next couple of years Breaca remains steadfast feeling strongly that she must continue to take the fight to the Romans. That is why she kills Vindex and leads the rescue of Caradoc. Her success brings hope to her and her Eceni people who now call Breaca the Boudica, ¿Bringer of Victory¿. She wonders if perhaps her new husband Prasutagos could expedite the removal of the Romans from Eceni. However, the Romans also have heard of the legendary warrior woman and plan to attack the island of Mona where she is allegedly leading the insurgency. --- The third Warrior Queen historical tale (see BOUDICA: DREAMING THE EAGLE and BOUDICA: DREAMING THE BULL) is an exciting look back at Ancient Britannia during a two-three year period in which Boudica tries to rally forces against the Romans. Manda Scott enables her audience to see much deeper inside her key protagonists so that motives are apparent especially Ban, who¿s hard to fathom his honor system from a modern day perspective. Though the story line at times feels padded and subsequently slows down, for the most part this is a terrific addition to the epic saga fans of the series will appreciate this entry while newcomers should read the previous two thrillers first. --- Harriet Klausner
