    1. Carol on said:

      On the lighter, more "popular" side of historical fiction, this book was a very entertaining read. Set on the Germanic frontier during Trajan's reign, it's the sequel to The Light Bearer, which I read several years ago. Gillespie continues the story of Auriane, a woman of a Germanic tribe who has come to live with a Roman patrician, Marcus. In Lady of the Light, Auriane's divided loyalties lead both her and Marcus down the path of destruction due to the increasing tensions between her people and [...]

      Not quite as good as The Light Bearer, but still a very entertaining & smoothly flowing read.

      I love shit like this. Can't wait for the third one. Gillespie has a real ability to suck you in on a personal level.

      It took me forever to read this book.I wanted to savor it! But sadly it has come to an end, and it left room for a 3rd bookybe?

    5. Elisabeth on said:

      I am giving this book 3 stars only because it reminds me of the book I read a long time ago and loved, and because it seems to be a promise of more to come. Other then that this book is a mess of stories in the middle of set ups and visions that contradict each other constantly. Auriane is meant to be a fighter and yet she is supposed to be a seeress who is not allowed to touch iron. Avenahar is a hot headed teenager one moment and a woman capable of learning the ways of war within a few months [...]

      Ik keek erg uit naar dit boek, aangezien het eerste verhaal over auriane, stipt mijn lievelingsboek is. Dat is het helaas na dit boek ook gebleven. In boek 1 vind ik het namelijk zo goed dat ze het verhaal zo goed uitwerkt en dit ook op een boeiende manier doet. In het tweede boek merk je echt dat er nog een 3e aankomt, en ze meer daar mee bezig is. Dan de verhaallijnen nu uit te werken. Waardoor ik met vragen ben blijven zitten. Zoals de band tussen avenhar en decicus. Waarom draagd ze zijn ges [...]

      I think I may have read this already 5-6 years ago but there is just so much information and story packed into these books that they are one of the best re-reads. There is a little liberty taken with the timelines to fit the storytelling but otherwise these are a remarkable historical fiction of the Roman timeperiod mixed with just enough fantasy to make it an appealing read rather than a dry story.I just wish that the ending were more conclusive than how it ended.

      I have different ratings for different parts of this book. I felt the storyline became laborious at times, but at others I was completely engrossed in what was happening. I didn't realize this book was the second in a trilogy and I am definitely going to read the first book. Absolutely brings Ancient Rome and Teutonia/Germania into full color.

    9. Laura on said:

      The second book of a trilogy, sequel of The Light Bearer, another magnificent book by Donna Gillespie. It will be hard to wait for the next book.

    10. Cassie on said:

      Long awaited sequel to The Light Bearer. Significantly shorter and not quite as good as the first, but still a good novel.

    11. Barbara on said:

      Having loved Gillespie's first book, I eagerly anticipated its sequel. I've started this book twice, and haven't been able to finish it. No fire to this one.

    12. Patrick Bättig on said:

      Auriane wird der Widerspruch zwischen ihren germanischen Wurzeln und der römischen Lebensweise zum Verhängnis. Sie wird zum Tode verurteilt, kann aber fliehen

    13. Merrilee on said:

      I liked it. I wish I had realized it was part of a series. It is a little complicated and brainy but very interesting.
