Druid Twilight: The Loom of Destiny is set in First Century Britain, during the Roman invasion. The story is told from the perspective of the people of the island, though it is well-grounded in historical facts as we know them. The Roman characters, as well as key tribal leaders, such as Boudica, are well researched and presented. The conflicts and major events also are rooted in the histories as told by Roman historians.
Originally planned to be a series of four novellas for electronic publication only, feedback from early readers eventually brought Druid Twilight into two books, published months apart. The Epic Version combines both books into one, and adds some research material requested by readers.
At heart, it is a love story, with fully rounded and engaging characters. You will likely find this book difficult to put down, whether or not you are a fan of historical fiction.

As a fictional story set in a pivotal historic time, Druid Twilight: The Loom of Destiny is an epic journey to first century Roman Britain. The Roman invaders are set to destroy the whole Druidic culture because they recognize it as a hindrance to their exertion of power over the British territories. The two Orders--the Druid Order and the Semnotheoi Order--have to decide how to pass on their legacy, knowing that the world as they have known it has come to an end.
Within this military and political struggle lies the personal stories of Caedwyn and Brianna, their companions, and the Elders who struggle with their responsibilities of the present and for the future.
Druid Twilight is an allegorical tale of our times: an age of transition in which ancient powers conflict with the emergence of a new way, a new system of beliefs that may either engulf the archaic ways or force their unexpected evolution. Nature, the elements, and time itself is at play in this intense and engaging shamanic narrative.
Druid Twilight: The Loom of Destiny (Epic Version) is an omnibus publication that includes both original books, plus the author's notes regarding story locations and more.
A love story at heart, Druid Twilight is a tale of the clash of enormous powers, of betrayal, retribution, and rebirth.
