This book was a great surprise. I read reviews of it on Amazon, which were not as good as I hoped for given the content, but got it anyway and am I ever pleased. The story grabs you right at the beginning and tugs at your heart strings (listen to the sample). I listened to the whole thing in like 4 days at work, just couldnt wait to hear what was going to happen.
The story is equally split between the lives of the main charecter Breaca and her brother Ban, and the narrator does a great job of changing her voice to suit the different charecters so you know right away which is talking when. Best of all you really get invested in them. I cant tell you how many tears I shed. Charecter development is fantastic as well.
Celtic myth enthusiasts, particularly those who know the "old gods" and the legend of Boudica, who enjoy a good retelling with the author's personal flair, will love this book. And men, the book is inundated with battle scenes, in "graphic" detail - so theres much there for you too. :)
Audible when are you getting the sequel "Dreaming the Bull"? :)

This is a book that's hard to pause! The first part is a little slow, and the pace picks up dramatically about a third of the way through - from there on, it's captivating. As an added bonus, Josephine Bailey is the best narrator you can wish for. Too bad the three sequels are not publised as audiobooks.
