Britannia, AD 60: The tribes of Britannia are ready to seek bloody vengeance. Twenty thousand warriors are poised to reclaim their land from their captors.
Now is their chance: the Roman governor has marched his legions west, leaving his capital and a vital port undefended.There is no going back.
But to crush her enemies for all time, the Boudica must do more than lead her army in the greatest rebellion Britain has ever known. She must find healing for herself, for the land – and for Graine, her eight-year-old daughter.

“A powerful novel, alive with the love, deceit, wisdom and the heroics of humanity.”
“A stunning feat of the imagination and an absolute must-read for lovers of historical fiction.”
“Manda Scott's Boudica novels are breathtakingly good.The tragic warrior queen, Boudica, is brilliantly realised. Her battles against Rome are both heart rending and magnificent.”
“The conclusion of an extraordinary achievement ... a story of defeat made glorious by courage and legend, a quartet that gives us back our own history. They will be read and re-read many times.”
“Great imagination ... fast moving action and spine-tingling battles. Wonderful.”
