After finishing the last book of this Manda Scott series, I felt out of sorts with the heavy emphasis on the state of the relationships of the main characters, while in the midst of creating an army, organizing a revolt, focusing on a crucial resolution on a people's survival against the Roman invasion.
As there is very little known about what exactly happened and the few pieces we have were written after the fact in Rome, the author had a blank canvas to start with and a monumental task in tackling this series. That is appreciated.
Throughout a four books, I felt the story line lacked credibility, especially when expediency demanded a certain amount of intelligent planning and approach and the characters wallowed in their intimate affairs instead.
The only part that made sense was Mac Calma's decision to leave Mona to the Romans and re-establish the dreamers etc. in Hibernia. We can only hope that who ever survived the last clash also relinquished their lands to start over in either Caledonia (Scotland) or Hibernia (Ireland).
Both countries displayed ferocious and successful campaigns against Roman occupation attempts at a later date. Perhaps the Boudica's progeny were part of those future war hosts.
