The second part of a trilogy is perhaps the most difficult to write. The author has already introduced some of the key themes in the first part (prominent among the themes of The Beltane Choice was the conflict between the Brigantes tribe of northern England and the advancing legions of Rome in 71 AD), and almost certainly has in mind a final resolution in the third part, but does not want to give the game away in the second.

In After Whorl, Bran Reborn, we are still in 71 AD, and conflict betwe

After Whorl: Bran Reborn, continues the momentous events started in The Beltane Choice with the Roman invasion of Britain as the native inhabitants struggle to preserve their way of life.
The Brigantes are a proud race and many prefer death to subjugation by the Roman invaders. The story starts with one of their brave warriors near fatally wounded, nursed back to health by a healer. Ashamed of his ruined body and with his strength is gone, in his new life Bran accepts the label of being simple a

Nancy Jardine manages to make ancient history interesting and relevant for twenty-first-century readers. The characters in her Celtic Fervour trilogy don't have telephones or any of our means of communication. They have to travel huge distances to pass on information to scattered settlements. But inside, they're just like us, with emotions and feelings we can identify with.

We can understand the moods of Brennus, who is reborn as Bran. We can also appreciate the thoughts and actions of the youthf

Enjoyable novel in a very interesting and
well-described time of history. There was,
perhaps, a bit more detail than I would have
chosen, but overall it is nicely done.

Wow!
This wonderful author did it again, captivating me in this wonderful and magical adventure from the first word, right to the very end.
This book is about Brennus, the Brother of Lorgan, who everyone thought was dead, but survived terrible injuries, thanks to an old healer called Meaghan, that not only heals him but shows him how to adapt to his disabilities and fight on.
The old Brennus has now been reborn, as Bran is no longer a warrior and half the man he used to be.
In this book you experien

This book was a continuation in the Celtic Fervour Series and I like it overall. I thought the rebirth of Bran was a realistic and made sense. I think there was a little too much information when it came to the Roman troop movements and strategies. I thought the life of the Celts was well done. I also liked the growth of Bran and Ineda as they dealt with their experiences. The book left us with a cliffhanger and I am excited to read the next book!
