Overview

For 500 years, Europe was ruled by people who believed acts of nature were omens of the gods, where nobility was earned and where honor was valued above life... These rulers considered themselves Druids: protectors of the Earth and wizards of nature.

The rise of the Roman Empire occurred as the world of the Celts disintegrated. Because they did not record their history, all stories were either lost or told from a Roman point of view. But suppose a Celt not only survived but actually recorded what happened? Who then becomes the barbarian, and whose civilization suffers invasion...?

From the Publisher

"DRUIDS is a very fine fantasy novel that cries out for a sequel or a series. Rhonwen and Orlan are characters I want to spend more time with." - Mike Resnick

Meet the Author

Barbara Galler-Smith resides in Edmonton with John, her fabulously supportive husband, and three incredibly cute Yorkshire terriers. After a hiatus from everything but working for money and writing romance or pet care brochures, she returned to the quirky world of writing science fiction and fantasy.

Josh Langston has been a writer all his life, beginning as a child in Minneapolis, MN, and continuing to his current residence in Marietta, GA, which he shares with his bride of nearly four decades, their two undisciplined mutts, and an indeterminate number of oversized goldfish. A graduate of Georgia State University with a degree in Journalism, Josh's writing tastes quickly shifted away from non-fiction. His short stories have been published in a variety of magazines and anthologies.

I enjoyed this book so much that I purchased five more copies to send to friends and family for Christmas gifts.

I throughly enjoyed this book! Not only are the historical aspects accurate, the characters are believable and very likeable. The action moved quickly enough to maintain my interest, yet I felt that the relationship development between characters was never neglected. I slowed down as I got to the end, as I didn't want the book to be over! I can only hope that another book is in the immediate future...
