Yet another triumph by author S. M. Carrière. Maybe I'm biased, being a Celtic princess myself, but I thought this was a great story. I am such a fan of how Sonia crafts her characters with a blend of strength and vulnerability, no matter what gender they possess. And I really enjoyed seeing hope and love take shape in a time when hope and love should have been impossible for anyone who wasn't Roman. I highly recommend to anyone who likes historical fiction.

A fascinating journey into the past filled with action and emotional depths that can only come from a novel by S. M. Carrière.

I was a beta reader for this book and I'm quoted on the cover. That means I'm not the most unbiased source.

This book reads like the best epic fantasies where you're transported into another world. As usual the strength of the author's writing is in the small human interactions and how much the they can make you love a character.

Warning, you'll fall in love with this book

I start this off by saying (probably to the author's chagrin) that I had super-high hopes for this book, because it was in the process of her writing it that I started reading some of her other novels (the Seraphime Saga, which I loved). I would see her posting little snippets of dialogue or narration on Facebook day by day, and those little snippets intrigued me enough to check out earlier books and now I pretty much snap up everything as it gets finished.

I'm not big on Historical Fiction - his

A fantastic, moving story, with incredibly lifelike characters. Historical fiction is definitely not something I generally enjoy, but this book blew me away!

I really enjoyed this book - I loved the setting and the characters were emotionally engaging. I hope to see more in this era.

While historical fiction is not my preferred choice of reading material, I found myself drawn into the story and characters. I am incredibly impressed by the fight scenes in particular, and the author's ability to combine intensity and calm ire in a single phrase.
Definitely one of my favourites published by Renaissance Press, and I certainly wasn't expecting that.

This was a great read! It was full of strong female characters as well as lot's of adventure. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who loves Celtic history.
My only problem with this book was the enormous amount of characters, sometimes I had a hard time placing names.
