She is Breaca nic Graine, born to the Eceni, a tribe of dreamers and hunters, storytellers and artisansmen and women in whose lives the real and the fantastical exist side by side. As Breaca proves her brilliance in battle, she is catapulted to the forefront of her tribe, who will rename the copper-haired warrior Boudica (She Who Brings Victory). Many will share in Breacas extraordinary destiny: the beloved father who always knew she was destined for greatness . . . the famed warrior whose love for her is rivaled only by his hatred for their shared enemy . . . the lost brother whose name will become her battle cry. . . . Now, as violence and treachery threaten a fragile peace, Breaca will once again be called to battle. And for the young queen, for the clashing native tribes she must unite, and for the spirits that live among them, a war for survival has only just begun. . . .
