Queen Boudicca is defeated. Her Iceni and other British allies are dead or fleeing from the vengeance of unmerciful Rome. The British rebellion is over. The beaten Iceni Warrior queen has gone into hiding and awaits her poison elixir which will aid her departure from life while the waiting druids wish to bury her in a secret place.
However, before Boudicca can complete her final and drastic act; a messenger arrives with news of a potential alliance. The Brigantes Queen Cartimandua may be able to offer a new pact against Rome. This is confusing because Cartimandua is loyal to Rome and has betrayed other Britons who fought Rome in the past.
Cartimandua is equally perplexed. She has no desire to aid Boudicca and fears the Iceni queen. Could both sovereigns be pawns in another participants’ ploy? To find the culprits of the conspiracy, Cartimandua chooses to indulge the inappropriate consultation of two very different British queens.
Praise for Powell:
“A unique way of recreating history with flowing words and large scenes. Intrigue, political maneuverings – it’s all here and well worth the read!”
“I would recommend this book to everyone it is a truly amazing read and to look at Boudicca and the Iceni tribe in a whole new light and from a very interesting perspective. I found the book very easy to read and to understand and I will be looking out for more books by this author simply because of the style they write it is something that I really like. All in all this book was absolutely brilliant and I am so glad I downloaded it now when first seen the book on here I was in two minds weather of not to get but I’m so glad I did because it was one of the most interesting books I have ever read.”
