Book Review: Caledonii — Birth of a Nation


I thought this was a very, very interesting read. What compels a collection of rival clans to band together? A common enemy, of course, but the road to unification is neither smooth nor quick. Ian Hall’s research into the little details of pre-Roman civilization in Great Britain is excellent, as is his depiction of political intrigue and the dangers present for neophytes engaging in negotiations and allegiances. I particularly enjoyed the the depiction of the druids (spelled “dhruids” in the book).

Since this is the first novella in a series, it sets up many questions, and an intriguing mystery. I will definitely continue reading the subsequent installments — I really want to know what happens next!
