(Boudica 2): A spellbinding and atmospheric historical epic you won't be able to put downav Manda Scott129
If you like Bernard Cornwell and Conn Iggulden, you will love this second book in THE SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author Manda Scott's epic retelling of the story of Britain's great warrior queen. "One of the boldest of recent adventures in historical fiction...Scott celebrates the mystic matriarchy of the British tribe with lush lyricism and story-weaving panache..." -- INDEPENDENT "A cry for freedom cloaked in lyrical and sensitive prose." -- OXFORD TIMES "Of the recent historical novels set in Roman times, this is the best one I've read." -- MAIL ON SUNDAY "So well written and atmospheric that you are 'there' along with the characters. Plenty of development of the main characters from the first book, lots of suspense and page turning action." -- ***** Reader review "Amazing writing, spellbinding, transporting... History and fiction woven together in a memorising way and creating a real and vivid picture of life in Britain 2000 years ago. Highly recommend it!" -- ***** Reader review "Every book in the series has you on the edge of your seat. It makes you laugh and cry, love and hate. In fact be prepared to experience every emotion." -- ***** Reader review ********************************************* THIS IS A HEART-STOPPING STORY OF WAR AND PEACE; OF LOVE, PASSION AND BETRAYAL; OF DRUIDS AND GODS IN A WORLD WHERE EACH LIFE IS SACRED BUT EACH DEATH EVEN MORE SO... In AD 60, Boudica, war leader of the Eceni, led her people in a final bloody revolt against the occupying armies of Rome - the culmination of nearly twenty years of resistance against an occupying force that sought to crush the vibrant native civilization of our island home ... Dreaming The Bull continues the story of Breaca - now hailed Boudica, the Bringer of Victory, and her half-brother, Ban, now an officer in the Roman auxiliary cavalry. Each stands on the opposing side in a brutal war between the occupying army and the defeated tribes; each is determined to see the other dead. Caught between them are two children, son and daughter to two of the greatest warriors their world has ever seen. While in distant Rome, the Emperor Claudius holds the balance of lives in his hands.... Boudica's story continues in Boudica: Dreaming the Hound. Have you read Boudica: Dreaming the Eagle, the first instalment of the Boudica story?
