Publisher's Summary

In AD 60, Boudica, war leader of the Eceni, led her people in a final bloody revolt against the occupying armies of Rome....

Dreaming the Bull continues the story of Breaca - now hailed Boudica, the Bringer of Victory, and her half brother, Bán, now an Officer in the Roman auxiliary cavalry. Each stands on the opposing side in a brutal war of attrition between the occupying army and the defeated tribes; each is determined to see the other dead. Caught between them are two children, son and daughter to two of the greatest warriors their world has ever seen, while in distant Rome, the Emperor Claudius holds the balance of lives in their hands.

Fabulous book, wonderful series

Reading these books has increased my awareness of what life could have been like. Even though they are historical fiction Manda Scott and the narrators (Jerome Flyn, Liza Goddard and Philip Stevens) bring life to the characters and makes one care for them.

A great read

An enjoyable sequel, only marred by one reviewer on here who gave away something that happens only at the very end of the book but which, sadly having read that review, I then knew from the start. Audible should monitor reviews more carefully for plot-spoilers.

Boudica

I must admit I found the first book of this series quite hard going but I’m so glad I persevered, ‘Dreaming the Bull’ is superb historical fiction. I am a fan of Caratacus sometimes known as Caractacus or Caradoc and was glad to see he didn’t return to Britainia as that would have stretched the fiction too far. Can’t wait to start book three now.

A brilliant historic fiction

I have read this and the other two books many times. I love Manda Scott's telling. waited years for the audio books as I find it difficult to read now. l will l istern and 're l istern. I love these books. Waiting for the next audio book in the series to come out. If you like historical fiction you'll love this interpretation. the vocals are easy to l istern to. a very good 're telling.

Excellent

This is an excellent follow-up to the first Boudica novel and now I can't wait to listen to the final part of the trilogy. You do not have to have heard the first part to understand what is going on but I think it would be helpful.

Excellent narration and wonderful historical detail. A great listen for lovers of ancient history.

Great Book

I read the Boudica series when they were first released, and couldn't put them down. So pleased to be able to listen to them on Audible now, very enjoyable. Manda Scott really brings this time to life. Love the writing style, and the descriptions of events and scenery etc.

Mesmerising

Rarely do I bother to give a full review of a book. However, this is the first audiobook where I haven’t been able to wait until the usual time of day to listen!

It has entranced and mesmerised me and I can’t rank it highly enough. It it live it and hopelessly wait for the next in the series!

even better than the first book

these books are written with soul. such artwork is greatly needed in our time to stimulate the deep imagination and DNA memory to recall / be activated into what human beings and culture can be.
