Please join me in congratulating Ruth Downie, Stephanie Dray, E. Knight, Kate Quinn, Vicky Alvear Shecter, SJA Turney, and Russell Whitfield on the publication of A Year of Ravens: A Novel of Boudica's Rebellion! I loved their first collaborative novel, A Day of Fire: A Novel of Pompeii, and had the chance to meet a few of the authors at the Historical Novel Society conference back in June, where A Day of Fire was named runner-up for best indie book of the year. The lineup of authors has changed a bit this time around, and I was honored to provide some copyediting assistance on A Year of Ravens. I think it's even better than A Day of Fire. Pick up both books--you won't be disappointed! Here's the book description:
A calculating queen sees the sparks of revolt in a king’s death.
A neglected slave girl seizes her own courage as Boudica calls for war.
An idealistic tribune finds manhood in a brutal baptism of blood and slaughter.
A conflicted warrior hovers between loyalty to tribe and loyalty to Rome.
A death-haunted Druid challenges the gods themselves to ensure victory for his people.
An old champion struggles for everlasting glory in the final battle against the legions.
A fiery princess fights to salvage the pieces of her mother’s dream as the ravens circle.
A novel in seven parts, overlapping stories of warriors and peacemakers, queens and slaves, Romans and Celts who cross paths during Boudica’s epic rebellion. But who will survive to see the dawn of a new Britannia, and who will fall to feed the ravens?
A Year of Ravens is available now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, visit the Facebook page, and check out the blog tour. The authors have a guest post on my blog, Let Them Read Books, sharing the tale of how this novel told in seven parts came together so beautifully.
