The Mark Of The Druid is a book that Rhonda has written, and then converted into a serialized POD cast. Whilst I would prefer to read a book, I really wanted to listen to Rhondas book, so I downloaded the POD casts and loaded up my iRiver. I intend to buy the book as well.
The Mark of The Druid is a fantasy novel that explores a past life of the two main characters, Eve McCormick and Andrea McMurray – where they are Druids in an ancient celtic clan.
However, the story is not just set 1000’s of years ago and our main characters reliving it. Rhonda skillfully weaves their present day activities with their past live experiences.
There are at least 2 other sub plots that flow through the story that by the end of the story are neatly tied up.
I love historical fantasy novels and I am a big fan of Marion Zimmer Bradleys’ Avalon series.
Rhonda has done a great job with I was really impressed with the seeming authenticity of the herbal remedies and the celebration of the Pagan Festivals. I say seeming authenticity because although I have some knowledge of the era, I’m not greatly familiar with it – but Rhonda describes herbs and plants that the Druids and Druidessess would have use, the clothing they would wear and the various rites that are practised for the festivals (without the more gruesome bits, which I have read in other books).
This book gets a 4 Star (out of 5) from me and is highly recommended. Listen to the Promo for the book below:
