I have this on my 'to read' list. Sounds great. I love historical novels, whether fiction or non-fiction. Can hardly wait to start this one.

I can't wait to read the second book of the series.

I have just discovered this exciting book and am anxiously reading it. I love the idea of a strong female warrior and the mystical ability of Spirit animals. Combined, these two make for a great character that defies both her parent and her lineage in order to do what she thinks is right for all. Even though there are, at times, selfish intentions, she is a young girl with abilities she is not allowed to use, yet tries to use them to help those she loves. Even though the first pages are all I have access to, I can see the plot is well developed and the reviews are of great acclaim. I can understand why. Apollo's Raven is, by far, the best book I have read on mind-meld in a long time. This book seems to blend the best of the Druids with the best skills of the Native Americans, at times, and this is very intriguing. I have downloaded it to my Kindle just so I can read the whole thing. Even though I do not get to officially review it, I still want to read it.
I think you can still write a volunteer review or post a review on Amazon. The book really deserves all the praises. I felt the same as you did after reading the sample.

From reading your review, this novel is definitely one I will have to try. Being a history buff, with a strong interest in ancient Britain and celtic mythology and history, I think this would be a good read.

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...
