About the Book
A.D. 84 Northern Roman Britain
Nith of Tarras helps Enya of Garrigill in the search for her kin, missing after the disastrous battle at Beinn na Ciche fought between the Caledonian warriors and the mighty Ancient Roman legions. Enya soon has a heartrending choice to make. Should she tread Vacomagi territory that’s swarming with Roman auxiliaries to find her brother? Or, should she head south in search of her cousin who has probably been enslaved by the Romans?
The Commander of the Britannic Legions and Governor of Britannia – General Gnaeus Iulius Agricola – is determined to claim more barbarian territory for the Roman Empire, indeed plans to invade the whole island, but finds not all decisions are his to make. It increasingly seems that the goddess, Fortuna, does not favour him.
The adventures of the Garrigill clan continue…
Agricola’s Bane is the next installment in the Celtic Fervour Series, and it is just as exciting as the other in the series. Readers could probably read this as a standalone, but I wouldn’t recommend it. All the background information and characters from previous novels are present in this book even though this is about the next generation in a sense.
Enya is in search for her brother and her cousin who are missing, and she can’t decide which direction she should go. I felt so sorry for her because her heart is torn. However, she is just as fierce as her fellow male warriors. She also has her own potential love story brewing, but this isn’t a romance book, it’s an adventure filled with danger at every turn.
Not only is it told from Enya’s POV. There are several characters that have a story to tell, especially her cousin and her brother. In addition, the horrible villain, Agricola, is telling his own tale. As I have written before about this particular writer, she is very talented in juggling her characters.
As with all the other books, this one is just as well-written. Jardine will transport you back in time, and readers will feel like they are right there alongside the characters.
