In AD 60, Boudica, war leader of the Eceni, led her people in a final bloody revolt against the occupying armies of Rome - the culmination of nearly twenty years of resistance against an occupying force that sought to crush the vibrant native civilisation of our island home...DREAMING THE BULL continues the story of Breaca - now hailed Boudica, the Bringer of Victory, and her half-brother, Ban, now an officer in the Roman auxiliary cavalry. Each stands on the opposing side in a brutal war of attrition between the occupying army and the defeated tribes, each is determined to see the other dead. Caught between them are two children, son and daughter to two of the greatest warriors their world has ever seen. While in distant Rome, the Emperor Claudius holds the balance of lives in their hands. This is a heart-stopping story of war and of peace; of love, passion and betrayal; of druids and gods in a world where each life is sacred but each death even more so...
The second book in Manda Scott's epic retelling of the story of Britain's great warrior queen.
About the Author
Manda Scott is a veterinary surgeon, writer and climber. Born and educated in Scotland, she now lives in Suffolk with two lurchers and too many cats. She began her literary career as a crime writer - her debut, Hen's Teeth, was shortlisted for the Orange Prize and The Times proclaimed her 'one of Britain's most important crime writers'. DREAMING THE EAGLE, the first book in the Boudica series, is also available by Bantam Books and the third boo, DREAMING THE HOUND, by Bantam Press.
"Utterly convincing and compelling ... a stunning feat of the imagination and an absolute must-read for lovers of historical fiction" -- STEVEN PRESSFIELD "Staggeringly imaginative ... Breathtakingly good, it reveals the best and worst in all of us" -- VAL McDERMID "An extraordinary work combining history and imagination. At times I was moved to tears, at others, immensely proud to be bred from a tradition that made warriors of women" -- JENNI MURRAY "One of the boldest of recent adventures in historical fiction ... richly textured, robustly plotted" * Independent * "A powerful novel, alive with the love, deceit, wisdom and the heroics of humanity" -- JEAN M. AUEL
