After Whorl:Bran Reborn's blog tour continues!
Reviews are coming in from some of the bloggers who have signed up to the Rachel's Random Resources Blog Tour for After Whorl Bran Reborn, Book 2 of my Celtic Fervour Saga Series. It is with some trepidation that I'll be reading what they say about this novel because it's quite different in style from the first book. I was therefore absolutely over the moon to read the first reviews because these readers really appreciate what I was intending for my characters!
The first comments came in from Ellesea on the 31st October. Read the full review here...
And this is how it ends...
"....The narrative is bursting with facts and the author's attention to detail is admirable. All this, wrapped around an intriguing narrative with fascinating characters. Still, in 71AD, I absorbed the lifestyle of these resilient people with respect and admire how they managed to survive in such hostile surroundings. Now I need to find out the fate of Bran and Ineda in Donning Double Cloaks."
And then came Jessica Belmont's incredibly boosting review. You can find that complete one here: www.jessicabelmont.wordpress.com
"... A fabulous novel that depicts the efforts of the Celtics to drive the Roman invaders out. I’m obsessed with this plot and determined to read book 1 now.
The characters are realistic. So realistic, I found myself very concerned for their lives. I was invested in their romances and worried that something would happen to them. I’m still thinking about them!
Nancy Jardine’s writing is epic. She describes settings, characters and such beautifully. My favorite parts were the battle scenes. Her ability to clearly describe the scene while being character driven is inspiring.
I loved this book. I highly recommend checking it out! Definitely reading this whole series (as if I needed more on my TBR!)
Rebecca of Reviewsfeed also posted some excellent comments. Read the full review here: https://reviewsfeed.net/blog-tour-review-and-giveaway-after-whorl-bran-reborn-nancy-jardine
Here's the ending of it...
"As with the first book, the pace of the story entertains the reader without sacrificing taking the time to link back to the back-story and elements of the first book. The references are done subtly and at the appropriate time to help us follow other characters in the series. Perhaps we will get to see more of them in the next book, After Whorl: Donning Double Cloaks.
I am really enjoying reading about a new era of British History. There is a lot of detail is being put into the progress of the Roman invasion and what is being done by the early Celtic tribes to try to repel them! I haven’t read anything like it before, so I am looking forward to seeing how the rest of the series pans out!"
There are loads of lovely comments for me to use in future promotions. My thanks to all of the reader/ reviewer / bloggers on this tour!
A quick reminder that during this first week of November the ebook of After Whorl: Bran Reborn will only be 99p on Amazon.
