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.
Set in Roman Britain, a sweeping historical epic of love, honour and the fight for freedom from an exciting new talent.
AD 79 and Agricola, the ruthless governor of Roman Britain, is turning his attentions to the last unconquered territory in Britain - Alba, Scotland. Rhiann is a courageous and beautiful Scottish princess and priestess scarred by her violent past. Of noble blood, she faces what for her is the ultimate sacrifice - a forced marriage - to protect the freedom of her people.
Eremon is an enigmatic Irish prince in exile, who must seek an alliance elsewhere to regain his throne. Will he prove himself to be the man who can unite the squabbling Celtic tribes against the more ominous threat of Rome?
With war and chaos looming for her people, Rhiann finds herself drawn into an unexpected journey of the spirit and heart, which will reveal the true purpose of her life.
