    Story

    In 33 A.D., the 11-year-old Breaca (later Boudica, or "Bringer of Victory") longs to become a Dreamer, a mystical leader who can foretell the future, but, having killed her mother's killer, has proven herself a warrior. Dreaming the Eagle sweeps from the turmoil of battle to the intimacy of Boudica's loving relationship with her brother, Ban; from the fight for honor to the magic of an animistic natural world that speaks back to the Celtic tribes.

    Liza says: "FANTASTIC!!!"
    "Terrific Book"
    Overall

    This is a book that's hard to pause! The first part is a little slow, and the pace picks up dramatically about a third of the way through - from there on, it's captivating. As an added bonus, Josephine Bailey is the best narrator you can wish for. Too bad the three sequels are not publised as audiobooks.

    Story

    The year is 1072. The Normans have captured England. The Turks have captured a Norman knight. And in order to free him, a soldier named Vallon must capture four rare hawks. On a heart-stopping journey to the far ends of the earth, braving Arctic seas, Viking warlords, and the blood-drenched battlefields, Vallon and his comrades must track down their quarry one by one in a relentless race against time. The scale is huge. The journey is incredible. The history is real. This is Hawk Quest.

    If you could sum up Hawk Quest in three words, what would they be?

    Rich, consuming story


    What other book might you compare Hawk Quest to and why?

    The Lord of the Rings, although that work is really in a class by itself! . This work is a quest, it takes the reader from Britain, to Greenland, France, Italy and ends in Constantinople, and it has strong and unlikely central characters.


    Have you listened to any of Fleet Cooper’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, and I found the narrator to be excellent.


    Who was the most memorable character of Hawk Quest and why?

    Vallon - he has a deeply hidden past, and is unpredictable.
