Reviews of Britannia: Book One by Letitia Coyne

Memuna reviewed on July 6, 2014

Britannia: Book One is probably one of the best books that I have come across. It is the first historical fiction that had me addicted to the extent that I forgot to eat, to sleep and pretty much everything else!
All the characters have been defined in great debt. As you get to know them more and more, you start to fall in love with them.
The novel is a great mix of fiction, and history.

It has romance, tragedy, betrayal, friendship and of course history! if you're into historical fiction then you MUST read this!

you'll not regret it!

(P.s. Regarding the review below, I had trouble in the first chapter too, but I think everything resolves itself pretty well and pretty fast. I think a little suspense was intriguing! )

I struggled to even make it past chapter One alone. I didn't know who was talking half the time and I didn't get whether or not she married her half brother(blood related/sharing one parent) or step sibling. Incest anyone?????!!!???!! I really had to reread chapter one. Later found out Bassus is the stepfather so the girl has two stepparents. How the heck did that happen!!!! An explanation came how it was she ended up with two stepparents but a little to late for me my attention was barely there anymore on this book.

There needs to be or possibly a part in the front or back of the book a definition of words that were used in the novel and their meaning for example ~tunica ~ I am going to guess its a dress instead of a sweater or wrap to keep warm

While Stola which I am guessing.means like a sweater or shawl.

I never had to frown so much while reading a novel. Good thing this was a free read because a refund would have been requested at the end of Chapter One.

I didn't feel the love between Luc and the woman it felt forced on me as the reader it could have been developed better. I skipped over the lovemaking part but I have no problem with sex scences it just seemed irrelevant and probably the worst I've read because I didn't get why it was needed considering I didn't see true love the author went about it her own to make the couple be in love it wasn't believable to me. The story was manageable to read but not something I'd even recommend or let other book reading nerds like myself know about it.

**4.5 Stars** What serendipity in my having stumbled upon this series. I love the way the author can draw you in the world she so carefully creates. The lush language--every sentence flowed like prose--the multi-faceted characters and engrossing storyline. Such a wonderfully rich creation, this tale. Cannot wait to read Book II!
