You write really good historical fiction stories. You should start it again. Please?

Aren't orchids tropical flowers? I don't think they are period, nor native to ancient Britain.
Otherwise, I'm enjoying it so far. Though the chapters could be a bit longer.

Great again - please don't stop updating!

(gasp!) Why is Boadicea so ruthless all of a sudden? Who kills a maid for impertinence?
Aside from that, lovely story, though why do you continue to torture Boadicea with Romantius? I did not think that monogamy was so prized in those days. Perhaps I am mistaken. However, I'd love for you to update. I want to get to the part where Boadicea kicks Roman ass, and find out what happens to Romantius when she does. Keep up the excellent work!

awesome beginning! (i'm a great fan of boadicea myself... have you ever been to london? there's a statue of her by the thames, with the sign, 'we shall never surrender', or something like that.)
just wanted to also let you know that if you like stories with fiesty celtic heroines, you might want to look at the arthurian fic I'm working on. It's called Morte D'Arthur, and it's set in a post-arthurian camelot. Angharad, the king's daughter, has returned from a mysterious quest to discover her father dead, her kingdom in ruins, and mordred plotting mischief from spots unknown. All the old king arthur cast is in it. I think you'll enjoy it.

Once again, I love this story! I mean, I really love this story. I can't think of anything bad to say about it so I'm just going to smile and wait patiently for more :)

If I were Prasutagus, I'd watch my back. (In a way though, I hope he won't, so some ill can befall him.) Boadicea is livid, and rightly so. And we all know what's she capable of. You described her reaction very well. You made us understand her sense of humilation, fury, and perhaps even something more.
I think the scene is set for major discord. Him giving the Romans so control over himself, the displeasure the Iceni are feeling...Boadicea's rage. Oh, I can't wait! I only hope that her daughter doesn't betray her. She's certainly not above defying her and showing favor the woman who is trying to replace her mother, but that can be just normal teenage stuff.

Go Boadicea! Okay, maybe that's terrible, but it needed to be done, and I'm glad she remembered a part of her former self. I feel incredibly proud of her, and of you for having her do it. It's probably just everything that's going on, and the maid picked the wrong time to be the straw the broke the camel's back. (Very satisfying description by the way)
The humilation she's suffering is enough to make me want to scream, but I'm glad she doesn't have to satisfy her husbands ugly needs for the moment. Though infurating, her treatment is realistic, and once again, you don't shy away from that. Sheesh. Men and their male heirs. Whose next on her list to do at Boadicea's hands? The mistress?
Another thing I have to address in this review is about Romantius. I can understand her conflicted feelings about him. I don't know how that's going to fly, and I love the not knowing. Although I would also love for romance between them, if you decide in your wisdom not to have that happen, I'll trust your judgement.

A quite unexpected twist in the story, if you ask me. Your story is fabulous, please keep writing!
| Shadow of Isis chapter 11 . 12/23/2004
Wow, the guy your heroine is married to is quite a sweetheart, isn't he? Does he have a split personality? One minute he's calling her 'his love' and then 'whore.' I'm just ready for her to find more of her former self.
I do appreciate the transition you made in her character however. It just adds more depth.

This is absolutely fine and grand! Your style is quite different, but it really catches onto me and holds my attention. You capture the actions and emotions quite well, and I am wholly interested in reading on. Grand work so far!

crap! Parental controls won't let me read the next chapter! I'll have to go to the library and read it then! lol! But great story! I'm sorry i didn't get back to it sooner! I liked your description of their duel, but i would've liked it to be longer! lol- i love fighting scenes! hehe! But great job!~Lauren

You are a very skillful a writer to be able to make me ache with sadness for Boadicea. I hope the children ease her sorrow. Okay, I need to eat some ice cream now to ease the depression. Bravo on being able to reach my emotions! Perhaps things can get happier? I hope so. I'll understand if you do what you must though, duty is very important.
