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...

Reviews

"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

This is the second volume in Manda Scott's four volume series on Budica, the British warrior queen who battled the invading Romans in the first century AD.

Breaca is now acclaimed as "the Boudica" - 'the bringer of victory' - after she and Caradoc faced the Roman invaders in a brutal battle at the end of the first novel.

Her brother Ban was taken to Rome where he is now a Roman cavalry commander, one Julius Valerius, feared and hated by the British tribes.

There's quite a bit more action in this volume, and I'm currently reading the third in the series - Boudica: Dreaming the Hound - this is an enjoyable fictional account of the the British tribes' attempt to resist Rome, and Scott provides good research and reasons for her take on events.
