COVER REVEAL for A Year of Ravens: A Novel of Boudica's Rebellion

I am so excited to share with you the cover for the upcoming release of A Year of Ravens: A Novel of Boudica's Rebellion by myself (E. Knight) along with: Ruth Downie, Stephanie Dray, Kate Quinn, Vicky Alvear Shecter, SJA Turney, Russell Whitfield and an introduction by Ben Kane.

This book has been a long time coming. A project that brought forth tears, anguish, and many fun discussions with a fabulous group of authors! I wrote the part of Boudica's two daughters, and between jugs of wine and boxes of tissues, managed to hopefully bring forth a story that is both tragic and uplifting!

Without further ado...


Britannia: land of mist and magic clinging to the western edge of the Roman Empire. A red-haired queen named Boudica led her people in a desperate rebellion against the might of Rome, an epic struggle destined to consume heroes and cowards, young and old, Roman and Briton . . . and these are their stories.

A calculating queen foresees the fires of rebellion in a king's death.

A neglected slave girl seizes her own courage as Boudica calls for war. 

An idealistic tribune finds manhood in a brutal baptism of blood and slaughter.

A death-haunted Druid challenges the gods themselves to ensure victory for his people.

A conflicted young warrior finds himself torn between loyalties to tribe and to Rome.

An old champion struggles for everlasting glory in the final battle against the legions.

A pair of fiery princesses fight to salvage the pieces of their mother’s dream as the ravens circle.

A novel in seven parts, overlapping stories of warriors and peacemakers, queens and slaves, Romans and Britons who cross paths during Boudica’s epic rebellion. But who will survive to see the dawn of a new Britannia, and who will fall to feed the ravens?

Releasing November 17, 2015!!!

You can pre-order the book now!
