I'd been waiting ages for the new book by BARBARA ERSKINE. She is a brilliant Historian and I always feel that she has really done her homework. The background that she sets with descriptions jump alive. The characters are so easy to understand, I feel that I am in the setting with them.
I found myself drawn in by the character of Cartimandua, the Queen of the Brigantes she has been so well written it was very easy to identify with the decisions she had to make during her reign. The author has very cleverly linked the past and the present by making historian Viv Lloyd Rees the link to Cartimandua through an ancient brooch .......Anymore info and I will spoil it for you!
A very good read, I would highly recommend it to anyone.

What are the daughters of fire? Because I read Daughters of the Moon series and Sisters of Isis series, both by Lynn Ewing, and they're about girls with powers and their lives. It's young adult, but I'm twenty and I like them enough to read them. Are the books you recommend similar?
