*********************************************

THIS IS A HEART-STOPPING STORY OF WAR AND PEACE; OF LOVE, PASSION AND BETRAYAL; OF DRUIDS AND GODS IN A WORLD WHERE EACH LIFE IS SACRED BUT EACH DEATH EVEN MORE SO...

In 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, Bán, now an officer in the Roman auxiliary cavalry.

Each stands on the opposing side in a brutal war 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 his hands....

Boudica's story continues in Boudica: Dreaming the Hound. Have you read Boudica: Dreaming the Eagle, the first instalment of the Boudica story?
