About the Author
Barbara Galler-Smith resides in Edmonton with John, her fabulously supportive husband, and two incredibly cute Yorkshire terriers. After a hiatus from everything but working for money and pet care brochures, she returned to the quirky world of writing science fiction and fantasy.
She's a member of Edmonton's Science Fiction and Fantasy Writer's Group. "The Cult of Pain", and co-founder, with writer-editor Ann Marston, of the emerging new writers group, "The Scruffies" (named for a group-written story's main character, not for their personal conditions). She's also busy editing with On Spec magazine.
A graduate of Georgia State University with a degree in Journalism, Josh's writing tastes quickly shifted away from nonfiction. His short stories have been published in a variety of magazines and anthologies. When not writing fiction, Josh develops multimedia presentations about Georgia's past for historical societies around the state.

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 witness in "Warriors," through the eyes of the vanquished, the destruction of the proud tribes of Gaul. By immersion in the lives and hopes of desperate tribespeople and Druids, the authors seduce the reader into a poignant optimism at odds with the historical context. In the face of the bitter truth, this final installment of the trilogy brings together the threads connecting the characters the reader has come to care about, leaving just enough hope for the fading Druid way of life to make us regret that the story has come to an end. Or has it?
If you like a little fantasy in your history, read this book (and if you haven't read "Druids" and "Captives" yet, get busy). The only good thing about the trilogy being complete is that we can give it as a gift set to our friends this Christmas. If you want to share but you're too "frugal" to buy books for your friends, call your library and make sure it gets this trilogy, then recommend it to your friends and get almost as much credit as the gift would have gotten you.
This is one of the most enjoyable historical romances I’ve ever read. The fictional characters are well drawn and interesting, and the historical ones anchor the story. Instead of bemoaning the destruction, the authors present the valor, the resilience, and the skills of their protagonists. There is also a neat twist at the end which history buffs may see coming, but most readers will find an elegant surprise. I just wish Edge Books had included bio-blurbs about the authors, and that the authors had provided an explanation of their research and which elements were historical, which fictional.
