Publisher's Summary

Can a curse control ancient Britannia?
The world is in turmoil. Celtic kings hand-picked by Rome to rule are fighting each other for power. King Amren's former queen, a powerful druid, has cast a curse that foretells Blood Wolf and the Raven will rise and destroy him. When Roman envoys unexpectedly arrive with a cohort of legionaries and demand King Amren's fealty, his rule begins to implode.
King Amren reveals to Princess Catrin, the grim prophecy that his former queen pronounced at her execution for treason to him:
The gods demand the scales be balanced for the life you take. If you deny my soul's journey to the Otherworld by beheading me, I curse you to the same fate as mine. I prophesize your future queen will beget a daughter who will rise as a Raven and join your son, Blood Wolf, and a mighty empire to overtake your kingdom and to execute my curse.
As his daughter, Catrin is trained as a warrior and discovers she is the Raven and must find a way to block the curse of the evil former queen. Torn between her forbidden love for her father's enemy Marcellus, the great-grandson of Mark Antony, and her loyalty to her people, she must summon the magic of the ancient druids to alter the dark prophecy that awaits her.
Will Catrin overcome and eradicate the ancient curse? Will she be able to embrace her forbidden love with Marcellus? Will she cease the war between Blood Wolf and King Amren? Will she save ancient Britannia?
Apollo's Raven sweeps you into an epic Celtic tale of love, magic, adventure, intrigue, and betrayal in ancient Rome and Britannia.

Great Historical Fiction

This is a fairly new genre for me. I don't read many historical fiction books but I thought I would give this one a shot. I'm really glad I did. The story is well written and I was sucked into it from the beginning.

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

The story gripped my attention and kept me on the edge of my seat. I was really taken by the twists and turns and some parts were very frustrating to see all the doubt and confusion between Catrin and Marcellus.

The characters were well developed and I loved some and hated some. It is a great story with many ups and downs. I'm looking forward to the next book to see what will happen to Catrin & Marcellus. The book ends in a bit of a cliffhanger but I'm ok with how everything wrapped up. This is a great series and I can hardly wait to see what will happen next.

The story is told in multiple points of view so you really get a good glimpse at everything that is going on.

Fantastic historical fantasy

The narrator is excellent and the story is very interesting.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The final fight scene is very intense.


Any additional comments?

Very interesting story that combines history and fantasy. Using elements of ancient Druid and Celtic beliefs and some Roman, all coming together to make one of the most interesting books I have listened to this year. I requested a free copy of this audio from the producer via Audiobook Boom which I have voluntarily reviewed.
