Boudica, â€śShe Who Brings Victory.â€ť Born to the Eceni, a tribe of dreamers and warriors, she is her peopleâ€™s last hope: a copper-haired warrior who can lead her tribe in battleâ€”and speak the language of the sacred dreamers. But in the face of a battle half won, Boudica has retreated with the living and wounded. Because across a river is the worldâ€™s mightiest army. And with the invaders comes a strange, bloodthirsty warrior astride a pied horseâ€”a man who seems to know the Eceni as well as they know themselves. For just as destiny marked the young queen for greatness, it was destiny, too, that drove Boudicaâ€™s half brother to a far different path. Now brother and sister will stand on opposite sides of a brutal war of attrition, each unknowingly determined to see the other dead.
