This review is from: Warrior Daughter (Paperback)
This is a most unusual book, set as it is in the first century. I'm not sure why I bought it as I prefer novels set either in the present day or the comparatively recent past but this has changed my mind. It was a superb read, tightly written and with a strong narrative drive. The characters are very well realised and Skaaha, the heroine of Warrior Daughter is someone who will stay in my mind for years to come. The novel is very well researched and Janet Paisley has done a great job in bringing the Iron Age to life. I can't imagine why it wasn't shortlisted for the new Walter Scott prize for historical fiction. I loved it and look forward to the next novel from Janet Paisley.
