Vividly atmospheric, thrillingly alive with Celtic ritual and magic, The White Mare is the acclaimed first novel in Jules Watson's epic Dalriada Trilogy.

Spanning three centuries, the series recreates Celtic Britain at the time of the Roman invasion: a land of visions and dreams, bloodshed and brutal death.

It is AD 79 and Agricola, the ruthless governor of Roman Britain, is turning his attentions to the last unconquered territory in Britain--Alba, Scotland. Rhiann is a courageous and beautiful Scottish priestess scarred by her violent past. Of noble blood, she faces a forced marriage to protect the freedom of her people. Eremon is an enigmatic Irish prince, an exile, who must seek an alliance elsewhere to regain his throne. Will he prove himself the man who can unite the squabbling Celtic tribes against the more ominous threat of Rome? With war looming for her people, Rhiann finds herself drawn into an unexpected journey of the spirit and heart, which will reveal the true purpose of her life. For fans of Marion Zimmer Bradley and Diana Galbadon, The White Mare immerses the reader in its atmospheric world of magic and mysticism, love and treachery, from first page to last.

From the Publisher:

It is 79 A.D., and the tribes of Scotland are among the last holdouts to the Roman conquest of Britain. Unaware of the perils that face them, embroiled in internecine squabbles, they will soon be faced with a grave choice:band together or become slaves. Rhiann, a Scottish priestess and princess, is forced into a marriage arranged to promote a strategic alliance. Scarred by a horrific past, she desperately looks for a way out, but sees only the Romans closing in. Into this volatile situation sails an Irish prince, Eremon, exiled from his home by familial treachery. His aim is to win renown and regain his throne, but first he has to deal with an unexpected alliance, prove himself a military leader, and unite the feuding tribes of his adopted country.
