The second part of the stunning fictionalization of the life of Britain’s warrior queen, Boudica, immerses us in a world of druids and dreamers, warriors and lovers, passion and courage. Originally a trilogy, this is now a four-part series. “Boudica” means “Bringer of Victory” (from the early Celtic word “boudeg”). She was the last defender of the Celtic culture; the only woman openly to lead her warriors into battle and to stand successfully against the might of Imperial Rome -- and triumph. Book one, Dreaming the Eagle, took readers from Boudica’s girlhood with the Eceni tribe to the climax of the two-day battle when she and her lover, Caradoc, faced the invading Romans. Believing her dead, Breaca’s beloved brother, Bán, joined the Roman cause. Dreaming the Bull, the second book in this compelling series, continues the intertwined stories of Boudica, and Bán, now an officer in the Roman cavalry. They stand on opposite sides in a brutal war of attrition between the occupying army and the defeated tribes, each determined to see the other dead. In a country under occupation, Caradoc, lover to Breaca, is caught and faces the ultimate penalty. Only Bán has the power to save him, and Bán has spent the past ten years denying his past. Treachery divides these two; heroism brings them together again, changed out of all recognition -- but it may not be enough to heal the wounds. Dreaming the Bull is a heart-stopping story of war and of peace; of love, passion and betrayal; of druids and warring gods, where each life is sacred and each death even more so; and where Breaca and Bán learn the terrible distances they must travel to fulfill their own destinies.

From THE SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author Manda Scott, this is the third magnificent instalment of the epic retelling of the life of Britain's great warrior queen. "The richness of colour and vibrancy of style have become the hallmarks of Scott's ambitious series." --YORKSHIRE EVENING POST "Scott has teased a few facts from the ancient record to create an absorbing story from history and myth." -- Publishers Weekly "Scott can write about spear-throwing and sword cuts as though she had experienced them herself" - THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT "It arouses passion and takes the reader straight into the ancient world of Britain under Roman rule. An exciting read for those who just want a bit of shock and awe in their lives..." -- ***** Reader review "This was a "one-more-chapter" type of book so that for several nights I only put aside the book when I could no longer focus on the page and almost dropped-off with the book open in front of me." -- ***** Reader review "Amazing writing, spell-binding, transporting..." -- ***** Reader review ********************* BRITAIN HAS PRODUCED MANY FIERCE, NOBLE WARRIORS DOWN THE AGES WHO HAVE FOUGHT TO KEEP BRITAIN FREE, BUT THERE WAS ONE FORMIDABLE LADY IN HISTORY WHOSE NAME WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN... AD 57: much of Britannia has been under Roman occupation for over ten years, where the tribes pay costly tithes to the Emperor in return for the right to continue living on their own lands. On the sacred isle of Mona, the Boudica or Bringer of Victory as Breaca has long been hailed, now knows for certain that her lover, Caradoc - betrayed, captured and kept hostage in Rome - will never return to her. She decides to leave Mona and to take the fight to the Eceni heartland where it is needed most. But the once proud Eceni are a downtrodden and defeated people who are forbidden to worship their old gods, and now scrape a living from the once fertile land. Across the sea in Hibernia, Breaca's half-brother Bán, struggles to make peace with his fractured past. Soon, provoked by Roman aggression, he will sail to Britain and, united with his sister, he and Breaca will face down the might of Rome in the bloodiest revolt the western world has ever known. Boudica's story continues in Boudica: Dreaming the Serpent Spear. Have you read Boudica: Dreaming the Eagle and Boudica: Dreaming the Bull, the first two instalments of the Boudica story?

From THE SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author Manda Scott, this the first instalment of a brilliantly imagined epic series that will leave you desperate for more. Perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Conn Iggulden. "Every so often, a book comes along that totally remoulds a historical figure for our own times ... massively impressive." -- Scotland on Sunday "Manda Scott has created a fictional universe all her own, but close enough to our reality for it both to warm and break our hearts. Breathtakingly good, it reveals the best and worst in all of us." -- Val McDermid "This book captured my imagination from the first page. I was swept away by the world that Manda creates with her writing. I couldn't put it down and was on to the next book as quick as I could get my hands on it." - ***** Reader review "Absolutely riveted to the book for the time it's taken to read it. Been very difficult to stop and put the book down to sleep." -- ***** Reader review ********************************** Britain has produced many fierce, noble warriors down the ages who have fought to keep Britain free, but there was one formidable lady in history whose name will never be forgotten... AD 60: Boudica, war leader of the Eceni, leads her people in a final bloody revolt against the occupying armies of Rome - an occupying force that seeks to crush a vibrant, complex civilization and replace it with the laws, taxes and slavery of the Roman Empire. But how did Boudica come to be Britain's first and greatest warrior queen? How does Breaca - who kills her first warrior at the age of twelve - go on to lead an uprising and become one of the great female icons? Boudica: Dreaming The Eagle takes us right back to her humble origins and recreates the beginnings of a coming of age story so powerful its impact has survived through the ages. This is the unforgettable world of tribal Britain in the years before the Romans came: a twilight world of Dreamers and the magic of the gods; a world where warriors fight for honour as much as victory. It is a world of passion and courage and spectacular, heart-felt heroism pitched against overwhelming odds... Boudica's story continues in Boudica: Dreaming the Bull.

From THE SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author Manda Scott, this is the final, heart-rending instalment of the magnificent retelling of the life of Britain's great warrior queen. "Fast-moving action, spine-tingling battles. Wonderful" -- KATE MOSSE "The tragic warrior queen, Boudica, is brilliantly realised.

The Boudica has been flogged and her daughters raped, and her son has burned a Roman watchtower in an act of blatant insurgency. This is the time to act: the Roman governor has marched his legions west to destroy the druidic stronghold of Mona, leaving his capital and a vital port hopelessly undefended. But to crush the 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, who has taken refuge on Mona. Is revenge worth it under any circumstances, or is the cost more than anyone can bear? Colchester is burning and London is lost without hope. Amidst fire and bloody revolution, the Boudica and those around her must find what matters most, now and forever.

AD 57: much of Britannia has been under Roman occupation for over ten years, with key areas in the south and east administered as vassal states, where the tribes pay costly tithes to the Emperor in return for the right to continue living on their own lands. On the sacred isle of Mona, the Boudica or Bringer of Victory as Breaca has long been hailed, now knows for certain that her lover, Caradoc - betrayed, captured and kept hostage in Rome - will never return to her. She decides to leave Mona where she and her warriors have been waging a guerilla war, and to take the fight to the Eceni heartland where it is needed most. With her are her children, Cunomar and Grainne, and her best friend from childhood, ex-lover and dreamer, Airmid. But the once proud Eceni are a downtrodden and defeated people who are forbidden on pain of death to worship their old gods, and now scrape a living from the once fertile land. Across the sea in Hibernia, Breaca's half-brother Ban, is struggling to make peace with his fractured past. Soon, provoked by Roman aggression, he will sail to Britain to protect Mona, and from there he will go to Camulodinum, and, united with his sister, he and Breaca will face down the might of Rome in the bloodiest revolt the western world has ever known.

The fourth and final novel in the magnificent saga of Britain’s warrior queen (Boudica – “Bringer of Victory” and the last defender of the Celtic culture) will capture readers’ hearts and minds, as Manda Scott brings the series to a stunning close. It is AD 60 and the flame of rebellion that has been smouldering for 20 years of Roman occupation has flared into a conflagration that will consume the land and all who live in it. There is no going back. Boudica has been flogged and her daughters raped, and her son has burned a Roman watchtower in an act of blatant insurgency. This is the time to act: the Roman governor has marched his legions west to destroy the druidic stronghold of Mona, leaving his capital and a vital seaport hopelessly undefended in the face of twenty-thousand warriors aching for vengeance. But to crush the 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 8-year-old daughter, who has taken refuge on Mona. Is revenge worth it under any circumstances, or is the cost more than anyone can bear? Colchester is burning and London is lost without hope. Amidst fire and bloody revolution – a battle that will change the face and spirituality of a nation for centuries to come – Boudica and those around her must find what matters most, now and for ever.

'Dear Stephen King,I am writing to you because I know you are a true believer in the world of spirits, that your had a near death experience similar to mine, and because you are a fellow Mainer. My name is Eleanor Druse...'Experimental psychologist and academic Eleanor Druse has had a lifelong interest in the paranormal. Then in 1999, her interest took an intensely personal turn when she suffered a serious head trauma in a road accident that resulted in a Near Death Experience. Since then it would seem Eleanor has acquired the disturbing ability to communicate with the dead...And her interest in this inconclusive world of shadows has become an obsession, prompted by what seems to be happening at Kingdom Hospital - the regional medical centre of her home town of Lewiston, Maine. It's an ultra-modern establishment, a centre of excellence, but it sits on the site of an old textile mill that burned to the ground in 1869. Dozens of workers, mostly child labourers, were trapped underground and perished in the inferno.Somewhere beneath the modern hospital, Eleanor Druse believes ineffable evil still lurks. She believes the 'distressed spirit' of a child is somehow trapped there, unable to find peace. She feigns illnesses that ensure she is readmitted to the hospital in order to investigate the increasingly strange goings-on there. She wants to make contact with the ghost girl - Mary Jensen - who is calling out to her from the hereafter, and there are those with vested interests who want to stop her. But something strange and disturbing is going on at Kingdom Hospital, something evil that modern science cannot explain away...
