Latest Review: Who Told You That You Were Naked? by William Combs

This book is right up my alley! I'm definitely adding this to my bookshelf. If you like this type of historical fiction, I highly suggest reading The Daughter of the Forest. Juliet Marillier is one of my favorite authors, and she writes a lot about ancient Briton and druids. If you haven't read it, check it out!

I read the sample reading of Apollo's Raven and found the book to be interesting. I love anything that is mythical/mystical based, magic, and druids, among other genres. The idea that Princess Catrin can see through a raven's eye and not transform into one is intriguing. I enjoy the way the book is written and the plot seems captivating, although I'm not really all that impressed with the characters, except for Agrona and Princess Catrin. Also, I like the fact that the book went straight into conflicts pretty quickly with Mor not believing her sister Catrin and the tension between the Celtics and Romans. To me, of what I read so far, doesn't match the book cover. It is a bit off putting. I'm conflicted whether I want to read this book because the pros and cons are at equals, but I would have to say no for now.

Very well detailed review. Tanner did a great job building the interest and curiosity of the reader from beginning to end. This book deserves some accolades. It'd make a great movie...

I read the review of Apollo’s Raven by Linnea Tanner. The novel follows the impossible love affair between Princess Catrin, the youngest daughter of King Amren of the Cantiaci Celtic warriors, and Marcellus, son of the Roman Senator Lucius Antonius. They were having the different views about the opposite states before meeting each other, but after finding themselves they were totally astonished. What happened in their life , it was totally out of their considerations. Father of princess Catrin advised her to investigate the secret conditions of Roman estate and father of Marcellus, who was from Roman Senator cannot allow him to marry a foreigner at any cost. Its strange situation for the lovers of this story. I liked this book, this story is wonderful.
