Product Details


“Fans of Watson’s previous volume of fictionalized Irish mythology The Swan Maiden will love this – it’s even better! Once again Watson brings Irish lore to life with characters and issues that resonate with contemporary readers. Don’t miss this one, it’s a keeper.” —Romantic Times, Top Pick, 4-1/2 out of 5 stars

The Raven Queen is a fine, beautifully crafted rendition of a very exciting and magical legend. While based on a Celtic fable, Ms. Watson manages to show Maeve as a marvelous leader who just happens to be a woman. Maeve is strong, brave, and fearless, but doesn’t lose the side of her that makes her all too human, able to love and to make difficult choices that could damage that love. All of the characters are richly presented, the historical research impeccable, and the writing is brilliant. Readers will find themselves totally immersed in the ancient Celtic world and will be cheering for Maeve. The Raven Queen is a Perfect 10 all the way.” —Romance Reviews Today

“Make sure you take plenty of “me time” to read this book. Because once you start you will not want to pull yourself out of this land rich in history and danger. I thoroughly appreciated Ms. Watson’s additional information included with this read, everything from pronunciation of names to the myths and legends behind Maeve’s story. The vivid detail that is used to describe scenery transports you; the description of characters help you understand each one for who they are and what they bring to the story. All these great qualities make for a great read for fans of history, romance, and fantasy.” –Coffee Time Reviews: 4 cups
