    One thought on “Warriors: Part Three of the Druids trilogy”

    1. First there was Druids, followed by Captives, and finally Warriors has arrived. This trilogy is mind bending in many ways. The historical details coupled with the story line of the Druids, Galatians, Roman's, and others some 2,000 years ago makes one compare it to our more recent history. The parallel is there although I don't believe that was an intent of the authors.Warriors kept me totally engrossed to the point that I could not put it down, let alone get anything else done. The vast number o [...]

    2. Just finished reading Warriors: good news, I got to enjoy another trip to a beautifully developed could-have-been history; bad news, this is the last book in the trilogy. In Warriors, the authors bring to the inevitable conclusion the intertwined stories started in Druids and continued in Captives. As foreshadowed in the clash of the ancient Druid culture with the aggressively growing Roman Empire in Druids, and made explicit in Julius Caesar's threat of genocide in Captives, we are made to witn [...]

    3. Excellent book from an excellent series! I didn't know much about Druids except for a few obscure facts gleaned by other books, but this book is the final book in the trilogy. Julius Cesar now has more power, about 20 years later from the beginning of the second book and the Britannic tribes are divided as to the course of action. All the old characters from the previous books are here, plus the younger generation and their exploits. MUST READ THIS BOOK!

    4. Rich in historical detail and epic in scope: the Celtic tribes battle the Romans. I now really hate Julius Caesar! I liked how the magical element--woadsleep--was used in this book. I liked the romance between Arienne and Dunn, though Rhonwen remains my favourite character.Quibble: The impediment between Tegan and Borwyn's romance was very similar to the impediment between Arienne and Dunn's romance.

    5. This is the final book in a superb trilogy that follows the lives of Druids in Gaul as they struggle with the Roman invasion into their lands. I loved the political and romantic intrigues woven through the plots, and was very satisfied with the ending of the last book. The final sentence gave me shivers. Be warned, though, the first two have cliffhangers that drove me nuts. Have all three handy if you're going to start reading them.
