Apollo's Raven by Linnea Tanner
An ancient curse threatens the fates of a warrior princess and her people in Britannia.
24 AD Britannia is in turmoil. Celtic kings hand-picked by Rome to rule are fighting each other for power. King Amren’s former queen, a powerful Druid, cast an ancient curse at her execution foretelling Blood Wolf and the Raven will rise and destroy him.
King Amren’s daughter, Princess Catrin, is swept into a political web of deception when the Roman emperor demands allegiance from their kingdom. King Amren takes Marcellus, the great-grandson of Mark Antony, as hostage and demands Catrin spy on him. Drawn to the magnetic charms of Marcellus, Catrin discovers she is the Raven and must find a way to block the curse. Torn between her forbidden love for the enemy and loyalty to her people, she urgently calls upon the magic of the Ancient Druids to alter the dark prophecy that looms over her.
Linnea Tanner weaves Celtic mythology into historical fiction set in the backdrop of Ancient Rome and Britannia. Since childhood, she has passionately read about ancient civilizations and mythology which held women in higher esteem. Of particular interest are the enigmatic Celts who were reputed as fierce warriors and mystical Druids. Depending on the time of day and season of the year, you will find her exploring and researching ancient and medieval history, mythology, and archaeology to support her writing. As the author of the Apollo’s Raven series, she has extensively researched and traveled to sites described within each book. A native of Colorado, Linnea attended the University of Colorado and earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemistry. She lives in Windsor with her husband and has two children and six grandchildren.
