About this title

Synopsis:

Boudica, perhaps the most heroic figure in early British history, is vividly depicted in this gripping novel of her courageous struggle against the might of Rome. Wielding her legendary sword, this beautiful and charismatic queen of the East Anglian Iceni decimates Nero's legions, razes St Albans, Colchester and London and cuts a swathe of fiery destruction that leaves 70,000 of her enemies dead. Although caught in a tragic web, she moves towards her inevitable destiny with heroism of the deepest dye, trusting in the ancient prophecy that her cause and her sword will one day be taken up by a mighty warrior-king - his name, the Druids say, will be Arthur. Beautifully written and meticulously researched, this novel is a compelling tribute to a revered heroine.
