Boudica: Dreaming the Hound (Boudica Quadrilogy) (Boudica Trilogy)
4.0 out of 5 stars
I have read all of Manda Scott's Boedica series. I could not put the series down...highly visual, beautiful, lyrical language, well-rounded, compelling characters...the books have everything! Ms. Scott grounds her imaginative story in excellent historical research. I cared about the characters. I cared about the horses and dogs. I cared about the villages. I cared about people on both sides of the conflict. I cared about the winners and losers of the battles. All the Boedica books represent the best of historical fiction wedded to action and the visual story telling of the writer. I entered the world of Britain and Roman conquest, magic and mysticism, dreams and visions, and the discovery of the spiritual truths that warriors live by... I could not wait to turn pages, stayed up late, read all the books in two-weeks (well, I do have to go to work) and....I was sorry when I came to the end of the journey and had to leave these people and their land. The books left me wanting...Read more

In the third book of the Boudica quartet, the Romans increasingly oppress the Eceni and other tribes, which serves to explain Boudica's preparation for rebellion. The story opens with Breaca hunting down and killing Romans on her own. Meanwhile, Valerius/Bán lives - if not alone - in exile in Hibernia.As with the first two books, the stories of sister and brother run parallel. But as the end approaches, the two begin to merge.Valerius gradually deals with his past. Breaca flounders at first, a stranger even to her children. But once she decides to step forward and lead, she looks to the future. Interwoven throughout, is the development of previously lesser known characters - Cunomar (son of Breaca and Caradoc), Graine (daughter of Breaca and Caradoc), Cygfa (daughter of Caradoc), and Bellos (rescued slave now living with Valerius).While readers who enjoy character development may like this, others who want to read about the rebellion, which...Read more
