Reading Apollo’s Raven was a good experience. The book has been expertly structured, knowing when to start the climax, moving through the scenes one paragraph at a time. The author wrote the book in a way that the sentences just flow and give the reader the best experience.

Apollo’s Raven is about the Celtic civilization and its struggle to avoid a war with the ancient Roman Empire. The story has a mix of romance, mystery, action and drama with ancient mythology. Bringing these genres together, the author made Apollo’s Raven a book of great interest to me, being a fan of ancient cultures myself.

The story centres on the Celtic princess Catrin in her fight to save her kingdom and discovering her feelings with the Marcellus, a Roman. In a web of lies, deceit and political agendas, the two forbidden lovers must forge their path even it means going against their respective families to stay alive.

The author gives the point of view of other characters, in doing so it gave me as a reader a better insight into what will be happening or what was being kept from the main characters. These point of views where written also to flow from scene to scene as not to confuse readers on when the scene is taking place.

My interest in ancient history was the forerunner to me wanting to read this book. I never looked too much into the Celtic civilization as much as I did with Ancient Egyptian or Greek. This was a new learning curve for me and I learnt something new about the ancient cultures.

The way the book was structured gave it a mysterious take in the beginning when a number of things are said and done that leave you wondering what’s going on. At stages in the book I couldn't stop reading, wanting to find out more of why things were happening.

There isn't much to criticize about Apollo’s Raven. The book is overall a great book and if you’re a fan of mystery and forbidden love this would be a good book to read. I would happily rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.

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.
