Reviewed for InD'Tale magazine. The review can be found here.
This is a story about a girl who comes from the territory of what today is France. The time - one word - Caesar.
I'm sure you're all familiar with this picture:
It is accurate in the sense that Caesar did conquer a big part of Europe. Unfortunately there was no magic potion to save the tribes.
I did try to insert some levity with the whole Asterix & Obelix reference, but beware - the book is truly heartbreaking - I was sobbing at times.
But that only makes it's impact on me even more obvious. A truly amazing book!
