With the arrival of the Romans, Boudica’s world is in upheaval. She and Prasutagus must decide where they stand. Will they fight the invaders alongside Caratacus or bargain with the Romans to secure the future of the Iceni? Every choice seems like a bad one. But more than anything, Boudica wants to keep her people and her family safe. Whispers from the greenwood—the groves, the rivers, and the stones—warn of unseen dangers. Can Boudica protect all she loves without bowing to the eagle?

Continue the epic tale of the famous warrior queen in Queen of Stone: A Novel of Boudica, book 2 in the Celtic Rebels series by New York Times bestseller Melanie Karsak.

My Review:

Queen Boudica is trying to keep all the people in her kingdom safe. She lost her father in battle and now her uncle is the king. What kind of king is he going to make or be? Will he keep the people safe? Will he take care of the people? Well, I don’t think so not after what the queen saw in one of the villages she visited on her way home to her own village.

Her uncle is not the only thing she has to worry about as the Romans are on their way to their village. The queen is gathering all her people together getting them ready for battle. They believe the Romans are on their way and are ready for battle. Can Queen Boudica save her people? Can she keep them safe? Can she protect them from the Romans?

The Romans have come in and given the queen and her people an ultimatum. Can or will the queen submit to the Romans for the safety of her people? Can she bow down to the Romans for the lives of others?

Queen of Stone kept me glued to the pages with all the fighting scenes and all the different animals. I love elephants and was glad to see that the queen feels the same way I do about them. The action from one page to another kept me racing to the end to see how it was all going to turn out.

The queen had a lot of battles and obstacles that she had to go through to keep the ones she loves safe. Queen Boudica has a great big heart and is always thinking of everyone else before thinking about herself. She always wants to do what is right and fair for her people.

I would recommend Queen of Stone to all fantasy and historical fans! One-click your copy of Queen of Stone today!
