Fav book so far

My favourite book so far would have to be Warrior's Daughter. I love the Celtic history and struggles that Luaine went through. My favourite chapters would have to be the epilogue and the one where she stands up to the king [I forget which one that was]. I would reccomend this book to all lovers of ancient history and customs.

Warrior's Daughter has my vote for the poll. I hope it wins!! :)
