Braving Fate by Linsey Hall


As chaos looms, a warrior queen is reborn Bookish academic Diana Laughton has been having terrible dreams. Dreams of battle, dreams of blood… dreams so vivid she's living them day and night. When demons invade her quiet life, she wonders if she’s going mad. Or if perhaps she's remembering a past life she had no idea existed… In the midst of betrayal, he must protect her Mythean Guardian Cadan Trinovante loved and betrayed Britain's warrior queen Boudica two millennia ago. Now he’s tasked with protecting mortals whose lives affect the fate of humanity. His latest assignment is Boudica herself, reincarnated as a woman with no idea of her past or her fated future. Though in the irresistible form of Diana Laughton, it's possible Cadan has once again met his match… To succumb to seduction could prove fatal Thrown together in a shadowy world that exists alongside our own, Diana and Cadan must fight not only the demonic forces that want Diana dead, but a past and a passion that have lasted centuries. Their desire could be deadly. But as evil from the underworld unites against them, their only hope could be each other.


 Braving Fate is a story of intrigue in regards to the historical, Celtic background. A romance with ties to mythology always lures me into the heart of a book. Linsey Hall shaped her plot around historical figures during a great war, creating a fiction using two primary characters from this war: Boudica and Paullinas.

It was initially the sparks between the secondary characters to grab my attention. Warren, who is somewhat of a mystery and Easha, a soulceress, are just as pleasing to read as the primary protagonists. I am actually eager to read the next book in Linsey Hall's series because it is their story. I truly enjoy the building anticipation created for these two.

The adult scenes that took place throughout the book were mind-numbing. The use of her description devised a smoldering climate of ecstasy. The romantic tension between Cadan and Diana was thoroughly satiated.
The creativity is the premise is appreciated just as much as the romance I live to love. I am personally an adventure junkie and yearned for something of a more expeditious journey. I am still happy to have been invited to enjoy this author's imagination.
