This is one of my favorite books by Morgan Llywelyn especially because it presents the untold perspective of the Gauls facing the invasion of Caesar Llewelyn does a superb job of combining historical fact into the story without making it a dry read which is proof why she is one of the master s of Celtic fiction She also does an excellent job of showing the human sides of the larger than life characters Ainvar and Vercingetorix who share a spiritual friendship often characterized by conflict and opposing views in the real world of stopping Caesar Two small complaints against this book which can be attributed to literary license Llywelyn s incorrect etymologies for names for example Vercingetorix as king of the world and her use of Irish names instead of Gaulish names for some of the characters But despite these two personal pet peeves a very well written and masterful tale full of magic hope determination and ultimately loss

An exciting reimagining of the ancient Celts young Ainvar is an orphan taken by the chief druid of the Carnutes in. Walking through a used bookstore I noticed the name Morgan Llywelyn on a 1 book I knew the name and saw on goodreads that it had gotten roughly 4 stars so I thought I d pick it up and add it to my Roman themed reading list A semi historical fiction novel about the Gauls in the time of Julius Caesar Druids tells the story of Vercingetorix s friends Ainvar the Chief Druid at the timeAinvar is a total asshole And I don t just mean that in a contemporary morality kind of way he is repeatedly shown to be an asshole in the context of his morality system spoiler take for instance his cuckolding of his best friend just because he was horny Oh I mean he needed sex magic Not that there are ever any conseuences for these actions other characters are just there to be used by him He also is kind of an idiot He s supposed to be super smart but he keeps confidently making predictions that turn out WRONG giving suggestions that a dumb etc etcOK so the main character isn t great What about the story Well it is kind of kind of the story of Vercingetorix s Gaulish confederacy but it s about Ainvar the Druid and how Awesome he supposedly is and how many women he has As great as it is to see the parts about The Druid Llywelyn goes a bit over the top in making these people sound like the spiritually perfect savagesEven worse the final section of the fight against Caesar is just terrible It reads like a list of battles which isn t very fun to read And some of the greatest battles where some pretty amazing things happen Caesar s siege of Alesia which are ripe for explication and description are left underexplainedIt s disappointing because at first the book seemed like it had a lot of potential but it all got wasted
