A Year of Ravens - Anthology with Ruth Downie - What a read ~
Britannia: land of mist and magic clinging to the western edge of the Roman Empire.
Sometimes getting into a novel written by a group of authors, even excellent authors does not work for me. However this one was different and I just loved it!
Ruth Downie writes so wonderfully about Roman Britain, and I could not get enough of Ria! This one is Ria - "A neglected slave girl seizes her own courage as Boudica calls for war" - she is the daughter of Prasutagus king of the Iceni.
"A conflicted young warrior finds himself torn between loyalties to tribe and to Rome." Andecarus who had been fostered in a Roman family but was son of Boudica's war chief and dies at his side.
I am very much hoping to see this same team of authors come back with a sequel, if that is possible. At least the half sisters Keena daughter of Boudica the Queen and Ria daughter of a slave. Hoping ~
