Book Description: From THE SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author Manda Scott, this is the final, heart-rending instalment of the magnificent retelling of the life of Britain's great warrior queen. "Fast-moving action, spine-tingling battles. Wonderful" -- KATE MOSSE "The tragic warrior queen, Boudica, is brilliantly realised. Her battles against Rome - the superpower of its day - are both heart-rending and magnificent" -- DAVID GEMMEL "I can't find a word to describe these books they are just completely.....amazing" -- ***** Reader review "Amazing writing, spell-binding, transporting..." -- ***** Reader review "A world I didn't want to part with" -- ***** Reader review "The whole series is absolutely brilliant - could not put them down" -- ***** Reader review ************************************************************************************* BRITIAN HAS PRODUCED MANY FIERCE, NOBLE WARRIORS DOWN THE AGES WHO HAVE FOUGHT TO KEEP BRITAIN FREE, BUT THERE WAS ONE FORMIDABLE LADY IN HISTORY WHOSE NAME WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN... AD 60: The flame of rebellion that has been smouldering for twenty years of Roman occupation has flared into a conflagration that will consume the land and all who live in it. There is no going back. The Boudica has been flogged and her daughters raped, and her son has burned a Roman watchtower in an act of blatant insurgency. This is the time to act: the Roman governor has marched his legions west to destroy the druidic stronghold of Mona, leaving his capital and a vital port hopelessly undefended. But to crush the legions for all time, Boudica must do more than lead her army in the greatest rebellion Britain has ever known. She must find healing for herself, for the land - and for Graine, her eight-year-old daughter, who has taken refuge on Mona. Is revenge worth it under any circumstances, or is the cost more than anyone can bear? Colchester is burning and London is lost without hope. Amidst fire and bloody revolution, the Boudica and those around her must find what matters most, now and forever.

Book Description: From THE SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author Manda Scott, this is the third magnificent instalment of the epic retelling of the life of Britain's great warrior queen. "The richness of colour and vibrancy of style have become the hallmarks of Scott's ambitious series." --YORKSHIRE EVENING POST "Scott has teased a few facts from the ancient record to create an absorbing story from history and myth." -- Publishers Weekly "Scott can write about spear-throwing and sword cuts as though she had experienced them herself" - THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT "It arouses passion and takes the reader straight into the ancient world of Britain under Roman rule. An exciting read for those who just want a bit of shock and awe in their lives..." -- ***** Reader review "This was a "one-more-chapter" type of book so that for several nights I only put aside the book when I could no longer focus on the page and almost dropped-off with the book open in front of me." -- ***** Reader review "Amazing writing, spell-binding, transporting..." -- ***** Reader review ********************* BRITAIN HAS PRODUCED MANY FIERCE, NOBLE WARRIORS DOWN THE AGES WHO HAVE FOUGHT TO KEEP BRITAIN FREE, BUT THERE WAS ONE FORMIDABLE LADY IN HISTORY WHOSE NAME WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN... AD 57: much of Britannia has been under Roman occupation for over ten years, where the tribes pay costly tithes to the Emperor in return for the right to continue living on their own lands. On the sacred isle of Mona, the Boudica or Bringer of Victory as Breaca has long been hailed, now knows for certain that her lover, Caradoc - betrayed, captured and kept hostage in Rome - will never return to her. She decides to leave Mona and to take the fight to the Eceni heartland where it is needed most. But the once proud Eceni are a downtrodden and defeated people who are forbidden to worship their old gods, and now scrape a living from the once fertile land. Across the sea in Hibernia, Breaca's half-brother Bán, struggles to make peace with his fractured past. Soon, provoked by Roman aggression, he will sail to Britain and, united with his sister, he and Breaca will face down the might of Rome in the bloodiest revolt the western world has ever known. Boudica's story continues in Boudica: Dreaming the Serpent Spear. Have you read Boudica: Dreaming the Eagle and Boudica: Dreaming the Bull, the first two instalments of the Boudica story?

Book Description: AD 57: much of Britannia has been under Roman occupation for over ten years, with key areas in the south and east administered as vassal states, where the tribes pay costly tithes to the Emperor in return for the right to continue living on their own lands. On the sacred isle of Mona, the Boudica or Bringer of Victory as Breaca has long been hailed, now knows for certain that her lover, Caradoc - betrayed, captured and kept hostage in Rome - will never return to her. She decides to leave Mona where she and her warriors have been waging a guerilla war, and to take the fight to the Eceni heartland where it is needed most. With her are her children, Cunomar and Grainne, and her best friend from childhood, ex-lover and dreamer, Airmid. But the once proud Eceni are a downtrodden and defeated people who are forbidden on pain of death to worship their old gods, and now scrape a living from the once fertile land. Across the sea in Hibernia, Breaca's half-brother Ban, is struggling to make peace with his fractured past. Soon, provoked by Roman aggression, he will sail to Britain to protect Mona, and from there he will go to Camulodinum, and, united with his sister, he and Breaca will face down the might of Rome in the bloodiest revolt the western world has ever known.

Book Description: Гомерівський епос складається з двох епопей – «Іліади» і «Одіссеї». У першій із них йдеться про подвиги звитяжців під час Троянської війни. У другій розповідається про повернення Одіссея – одного з героїв Троянської війни – на рідний острів Ітаку та про незвичайні пригоди, які йому довелося пережити. «Одіссея» дихає величавим спокоєм, вона сповнена духовної краси і величі та є завершеним втіленням класичної епопеї. Поема наповнена цікавим побутово-звичаєвим змістом життя стародавніх еллінів, і разом з тим вона нас вводить у казково-фантастичний світ грецької міфології. Поема відзначається досить складною і довершеною композицією, що свідчить про високий художній рівень, якого досягла поезія гомерівського часу.

Book Description: «Червона літера» – перший американський роман, що став бестселером у Європі. У досконалому за формою творі Натаніель Готорн наочно відтворив духовне обличчя своїх предків-пуритан, що жили в середині XVII століття, і викрив їхню сувору і похмуру нетерпимість, жорстокість, збочені уявлення про гріх, справедливість і кохання. Історія подружньої зради перетворилася на потужну драму, з якої героїня, зазнавши жорстоких випробувань, виходить перевтіленою, але без каяття, бо її зігріває думка про те, що вчинене нею заради справжнього почуття. «Червону літеру» цькували в США, де ортодокси вважали роман за «пропаганду похоті й незаконних стосунків», однак це тільки сприяло його популярності.
