Jules Watson's parents are English but she was brought up in Australia. She now lives in Sussex. She is in her early 30s. This is her first novel.
A sweeping historical epic of love, honour and the fight for freedom as the Romans invade Britain. It is the first in a trilogy which I understand will span three centuries. The second, The Dawn Stag, comes in an expensive, large paperback (tpb) at the same time. It’s glorious stuff, both deep and wholly absorbing. I really enjoyed it. Comparison: Manda Scott’s Boudica, Bernard Cornwell, Juliet Marillier.Similar this month: Neal Stephenson, Lian Hearn (but fantasy).
