What an amazing amazing book Pauline Gedge manages to recreate a pre Roman England Albion that feels so alive and so real which is a skill that few historical fiction writers have particularly in a setting so far removed from us today The story she creates is fast moving keeping me glued to the pages but she still has a way of packing an emotional punch I was in tears by the last pagesI was expecting the story to be focused on Boudicca based on the book cover but I don t necessarily feel that s a negative the scope is far larger and ends up giving a complete story about the resistance to Rome In some ways I didn t feel like the scope was large enough I wanted to see Aricia get her comeuppance and to see what happened to Venutius One thing that I did really love is the true villain of the story is Rome not the emperor not his governors not his generals not his legions but RomeAn incredible book Outback Encounter us today The story she creates is fast moving keeping me glued to the pages but she still has a way of packing an emotional punch I was in tears by the last pagesI was expecting the story to be focused on Boudicca based on the book cover but I don t necessarily feel that s a negative the scope is far larger and ends Willow Point A Harbour Falls Mystery #2 up giving a complete story about the resistance to Rome In some ways I didn t feel like the scope was large enough I wanted to see Aricia get her comeuppance and to see what happened to Venutius One thing that I did really love is the true villain of the story is Rome not the emperor not his governors not his generals not his legions but RomeAn incredible book

SUMMARY The Eagle and the Raven

READ & DOWNLOAD The Eagle and the Raven î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB They marked time by the moon and counted nights not days They measured their history in ages of thirty years passing on all knowledge and lore by recitationA mysterious and passionate people t. All we wanted was to be left alone This is a book that needs to be read slowly Come to it with a clear mind Yes it is full of difficult names and different tribes Leaders of both sides come and go all realistic characters that tell stories of a far away time but carry a message that never becomes old The desire of everyone of us to be free free in every way regardless of religion ethnicity financial status etc Yes we all live together sharing our Earth but this doesn t mean that the few can dictate a way of life to be shared by all to obey blindly Where is the freedom of choice we all desire Is it a given Far from it I d say In our days we see enemies of a different kind of oppression enemies that are invisible enemies that do not brandish swords but money surpluses and modern machine gunsWhen you read the final page of a 700 book and you find that there wasn t a single filler moment you experience something rare especially for a lover of Historical fiction a genre notorious for its fillers There are numerous books about Boudica s rebellion against the army of Rome the best example is the tetralogy of Boudica by Manda Scott If you haven t read it you must It is the first book though that Caradoc takes a part of the spotlight My knowledge of him was limited to the Celtic class in univeristy Here the narration is divided between his attempts to free a nation and Boudica s struggle to find the balance between the wishes of her cowardish husbad and her fiery nature that longs for a free Albion Such a little word freedom such a small reuest and yet the asking of it has consumed the soul of a people The fight seems doomed from the start the conclusion is well known Still the author has created a book that takes you in an exciting mystical journey Each character has something to offer Caradoc his illusions Eurgain her fierce devotion Gladys her love Aricia carries the wounds of the past like markings from a hot iron causing havoc bringing dishonour She was my favourite character in all her controversial nature I found Caradoc a bit naive and watching Boudica trying to put up with Prasutagus notions of a Roman peace was painful He should have known that the lion would not lie down with the lambThere is a sentence that struck me the moment I read it Far away in the swirling autumn mists of Albion the light of freedom flickered and went out Thank God that the statue of Boudica and her daughters in London by Thomas Thornycroft facing Big Ben stands as a witness to the candle of freedom that is put out far too many times and yet is always lit again
