Boudica: Dreaming the Bull by Manda Scott
Book DescriptionIn 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 of attrition 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 their hands. This is a heart-stopping story of war and of peace; of love, passion and betrayal; of druids and gods in a world where each life is sacred but each death even more so ...

2012: The Crystal Skull, Paperback (December 2011)» View all books by Manda Scott
The ancient Mayans predicted the End of Days with uncanny precision: 21 December 2012. But they also provided the key to staving off apocalypse: a flawless sapphire of incomparable beauty carved into the perfect likeness of a human skull. For more than four centuries, the skull and its legacy of dark intrigue and murder have been hidden.
UK Kirkus Review » This compelling historical novel, the second of the series, is less about Boudica herself (Boudica, or Boadicea, was an honorific - the famed warrior queen, at least in Scott's reading, was called Breaca) than about her brother Ban, one of the many fictional characters who are brought to life in this page-turner. Ban, now renamed Julius Valerius, has risen to the rank of decurion in the Roman army and is determined to wreak vengeance on Caradoc, Breaca's lover, for what he imagines is Caradoc's betrayal of his people. When Caradoc and several of his family are captured during a brave attempt at insurgency against the invading Romans and taken to Rome, and Julius is given the task of driving their cart to their execution, it seems as though his wish will be granted. But he and the emperor Claudius have not taken into account the supernatural powers of the Celtic 'dreamers'... Manda Scott has taken factual sources such as Tacitus as the basis for this excellent sequel and has woven a rich tapestry of entirely believable fiction around it.(Kirkus UK)
