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 change- 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' legions for all time, 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. Colchester is burning. London has been destroyed. Amidst fire and bloody revolution, the Boudica and those around her must fight to keep what matters most - now and for all time.

About the Author

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.

Wonderful" -- Kate Mosse, author of LABYRINTH "A powerful novel, alive with the love, deceit, wisdom and the heroics of humanity" -- Jean Auel "A stunning feat of the imagination and an absolute must-read for lovers of historical fiction" -- Steven Pressfield "Manda Scott's Boudica novels are breathtakingly good.The tragic warrior queen, Boudica, is brilliantly realised.

I have read all 4 in the series and found them historically incorrect at times but but entertaining. Very violent in parts.

This review is from Michele Devereux-Austin not Eric Driver...was unable to change the name on the page.

I enjoyed the final book in the Boudica series: although history tells us the outcome of the story, I was still hoping that Breaca and her followers would pull off a miraculous victory. Once started, I couldn't put the book down. I was racing towards and ending that I knew would be sad but still couldn't put it down. Dreaming the Serpent Spear made me laugh, despair and cry. Well worth the read. If only there was a sequel to wrap up some loose ends ...
