About this title

Synopsis:

This is the story of Boudica: the last defender of Celtic culture, the only woman openly to have led her warriors into battle, the only British warrior to stand against Imperial Rome and triumph. But it is also the story of the two men she loved most: the warrior Caradoc and her half-brother Ban."

From the Back Cover:

“What’s amazing to me about this tale of Boudica, Britain’s legendary female warrior, is the pitch-perfect fluency with which Manda Scott brings it forth . . . like an eyewitness recounting real events that she saw and participated in. Her reimagining of this age, when the tribes of Britain clashed with the legions of Rome, includes interior monologues, multiple points of view, dreams, visions, ecstasies, and interlocutions with the dead, all of it utterly convincing and compelling. . . . A stunning feat of the imagination and an absolute must-read for lovers of historical fiction.”
-- Steven Pressfield, author of Tides of War and Gates of Fire

"A masterpiece of historical fiction, Scott's richly detailed novel brilliantly captures the driven, passionate soul of the Celts. The lyric prose captivates, the characters ensnare. In Scott's talented hands, the legendary Celtic queen Boudica breathes, lives, and absolutely rivets."
--Karen Marie Moning, author of The Dark Highlander

"Manda Scott has created a book to stir the hearts & souls."
--Leslie Forbes, bestselling author of Fish, Blood & Bone



"Hailed as the new Mary Renault...A truly remarkable story full of wonderful atmosphere...Intensely exciting, a tale of passion, courage and heroism against huge odds, which is intensely moving."
--Publishing News

Dreaming the Eagle is a powerful novel about Boudica, one of the most intriguing and mysterious women in history. Scott as done her research, and the mix of real images and her imagination has created a completely believable world. Her characters are so true to life that they all but jump off the page, and the story is alive with the love, deceit, wisdom and heroics of humanity. Read it and enjoy!”
--Jean M. Auel, nationally bestselling author of The Shelters of Stone
