  • Literary Titan

    Amulet’s Rapture turned out to be one of the top 3 books I have read in the last six months! And I read, a lot ! The author Linea Tanner, begins the story of a pre–Dark age Roman period, at the time when Roman power was the paramount power in the known Western world. We find our main character Catrin, a princess of Britannia, a fierce warrior and a druidess ending up being a slave to a Roman. She had never imagined her state even in her dreams but after her father, King Amren lost to Romans and her step-brother Marrock became the client king of the Cantiaci kingdom, this was her harsh reality. She was taken a slave by the Roman tribune Decimus and named her Vibius a boy, ensuring that everyone would believe her to be a boy. We also come to know that his step-brother murdered both her mother and father, meaning that her identity as a princess was wiped out, forgotten by all except for a few. We see her at first as a damsel, waiting upon her prince, her beloved Apollo, to come to her rescue and take her away from all her troubles. We see then her metamorphosis into a warrior, as layer after layer of her sorrow and sadness transformed her into a warrior. We see that her master, Decimus has an ulterior purpose, and though he shamed her, was disdainful and treated her with utter contempt, he kept her safe. We also get to know of Marcellus, and are stunned to know that he is the husband of Catrina, the background story and the situation they find themselves in. Will they be united or won’t is the question. What was most striking was the incredible layers the author has crafted in the story that it gels smoothly. So many times, I have seen good beginnings spoiled because the author let the story stagnate or introduce plots that have no meaning or place in the story, which really irritates me. I am thankful that the author has kept a tight ship. Secondly, I like the brutality and the savagery which actually existed in Roman times and their conflicts with tribes of Britannia, Gaul and other places were gory and ugly. That the author manages to weave them seamlessly without sacrificing the main plot elements which makes this a well rounded story. A very enjoyable read and I will look forward to more.

  • Captivating and Exciting!

    The Amulet’s Rapture by Linnea Tanner continues the tale of the forbidden love and relationship between Catrin, the warrior Druid princess, and Marcellus, a Roman Tribune. Catrin’s family is killed and her homeland ransacked by her half-brother Merrick who is conspiring with Roman Legionnaires. Captured by a Roman commander, Catrin is forced to live life as a boy and serve as the oracle of Apollo. Marcellus, with his mind, wiped clean of Catrin and his life in Britannia reconnects with Catrin. Their love and forbidden relationship force the Roman Commander to sell Catrin into the Gladiator arena. Separated by the fates, the selfishness, and lies of the Roman Commander, both must find their way back together. The journey is long with deadly pitfalls at each step. Longing to return home, Catrin fights what the fates have thrown in her way. Time will tell whether Catrin can return home and what if anything is left to return to and whether she will be reunited with Marcellus. Linnea Tanner once again captures the attention of her audience and weaves a magical story of love, survival and morality. Tanner is skilled at storytelling and weaving a supernatural based story using myth and legend as well as being historically accurate. Tanner is vivid in her descriptions and dialog taking her audience along on an intense journey of transformation and survival. Tanner gives her audience excitement, passion, and profound experiences that resonate on several levels. Tanner has developed a strong storyline with character development that ensures the characters to be realistic and believable. Kristen James delivers a performance that is not only memorable but draws the listener into the book more deeply as the story builds. Her change in tones and rhythm keep the story moving at a steady pace. Her performance adds to an already riveting book making it richer and more captivating. There were no issues with the production or quality of this book. While it is the third book in the series, it can still be read without having read the others. I would recommend that you read the entire series because this is a top-notch series that is well done. Tanner is a masterful word crafter. I look forward to hearing book 4!
