I love how the book combines so many elements: fantasy, history and mythology. I don't like how the erotic scene between Catrin and Marcellus was written.

I finished of read the book of Apollo’s Raven, I think about the combination of the magic with the history of love and the protection of a kingdom and is given a touch of fantasy and mistery and I liked about the same way they perceive magic as something that could be out of place but at the time a power of the princess. I think is also a nice touch and how they are representing of a way a bit of the history and the ancient Gods of the ancestral cultures as Apollo and the sacrifices (that is more as if all the cultures was given sacrifices of blood to reptilian Gods after all..) but yes, good book to read and the good way they include to make think at the reader about the magic as a kind of fantasy but real and helpful, that perhaps until a point can exists. ;)

I like this historical fiction especially when it tells a riveting story about family, politics, and religion. The characters were fascinating and captivating. I rate it 4 out of 4 stars and I would recommend it those who love history and don't mind politics and religion.

I haven't read this book, but I might try to read it because of some of the discussions on this thread. Historical fantasy sounds really interesting.

I thnk the characterization of the book suite the adult since the youth will not comprehence it structure. The book is filled with a mix element like history, fantasy, mythology, etc. The book gave an insight and preview more than one historical culture and unsatistified romance. The author pictured in the mind of the readers the ancient history where strong celtic women find themselves influencing clansmen, kings and queens. It also in the other hand bring to view the practics, religion, methology, fantasy of celtic culture and that of Roman empire in null shet. LINNEA TANNER makes this book interesting in the way of presentation of the storyline, especially the romance that bring about the fictional tale that ursher in historical research. I give it 4 out of 4.

I saw the cover and it's caught my eye. But it seems to be about the Greek empire/Ancient Greece just from the glimpse of the cover. Have yet to read a review.

I haven't read the book but judging from the title, it might be related to space, ie the name Apollo? Maybe after I check the reviews done by others, I will read about it.

I haven't read the book yet but I have read the review. The plot of seems appealing. Kings Queens, princess and their story are very interesting. I'll pick this up.
A joke is to entertain people. If it fails to do so, it's something else!
