    1. Rage Against the Dying Light, by award winning author Jan Surasky, is a brilliantly written novel about Boudicca, Britain’s legendary warrior queen. Boudicca led a fierce and vengeful Celtic rebellion against the Roman Empire during the first century. While the Romans fought for greed, she fought for her country, her freedom and to avenge her young daughters violated by Roman soldiers when they swarmed her palace to overtake the Iceni kingdom. Born an aristocrat of the Coritani Tribe, Boudicca [...]

    2. There are many songs and tales of Boudicca – the warrior queen who led thousands against the Roman troups set on claiming her homeland.

A young princess waiting to dance the Maiden’s Dance, a girl possibly loving another but submitting to her father’s choice to strenghten her [...]

    3. I was lucky enough to receive a signed copy of Rage Against the Dying Light as a gift from a friend. The book is easy to read and easy to follow. The characters came to life and I didn't have a hard time "transporting" myself into the story thanks to the use of appropriately placed descriptive words. I felt Boudicca was way ahead of her time--truly a woman of courage. I didn't want the story to end! I'm looking forward to more books by Jan Surasky.

    4. 2.5 stars. "Rage Against the Dying Light" is the story of Boudicca, the warrior queen who led her people to victory. She is a well known figure of Celtic history, a people that I really just don't know much about at all, which may have been part of some of the issues that I had with this book. I was not familiar at all with Boudicca at all before this book.Boudicca's story is definitely interesting and this book was definitely well researched. It's a relatively short book (not much over 200 page [...]

    5. *GoodReads Giveaway Book**3.5 Stars*I went into this book not really knowing what it was about. The forenote and the afternote really helped because it gave a bit more information. This book was basically a historical account of the Celtic rebellion from the Celts POV. It was a bit confusing at times because it would switch from different characters POVs and different scenes. Also the names were super difficult to pronounce, but that was because they were authentic. I have never heard anything a [...]
