The magnificent, heart-rending final novel of the world's most famous warrior queen.
Manda Scott began writing while still a veterinary surgeon. Her first novel, a contemporary crime thriller, Hen's Teeth was shortlisted for the Orange Prize. Subsequent thrillers are Night Mares, Stronger than Death and No Good Deed, for which she was hailed by the Times as'one of Britain's most important crime writers'. Having served her writing apprenticeship, she went back in time to write the Boudica series, of which the first three books, Dreaming the Eagle, Dreaming the Bull and Dreaming the Hound , are also available in Bantam paperback. Along the way, she has moved from the lands of the Eceni (Norfolk) to the lands of the Silures (Shropshire) , where she lives with her partner, her lurcher and not nearly enough cats. She teaches shamanic dreaming courses based on the ethos described in the books, insofar as it may reasonably be applied to contemporary living.
