Boudica: Dreaming the Eagle

10 ratings

Summary

Manda Scott's Boudica will tell the extraordinary, resounding story of Britain's first and greatest warrior queen, the woman who remains one of the great female icons. In AD 60, Boudica, war leader of the Eceni, led her people in a final bloody revolt against the occupying armies of Rome. It was the culmination of nearly 20 years of resistance against an occupying force that sought to crush a vibrant, complex civilisation and replace it with the laws, taxes and slavery of the Roman Empire. Gloriously imagined, Boudica: Dreaming the Eagle re-creates the beginnings of a story so powerful its impact has survived through the ages, recounting the coming of age of Breaca, who at 12 kills her first warrior. 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.

Summary

Manda Scott's Boudica will tell the extraordinary, resounding story of Britain's first and greatest warrior queen, the woman who remains one of the great female icons. AD 57: much of Britannia has been under Roman occupation for more than 10 years, and 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 leaves Mona, where she and her warriors have been waging a guerrilla war, and takes 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. Across the sea in Hibernia, Breaca’s half-brother, Bán, is struggling to make peace with his fractured past. Soon, provoked by Roman aggression, he will sail to Britannia where he and Breaca will face down the might of Rome in the bloodiest revolt the Western world has ever known.
