"Tanner pens a compelling narrative, and she writes with imagination and a great deal of energy. This is a book that is triumphant in all ways. If you are looking for your next great historical fantasy series set within a realistic Roman backdrop, then look no further than Amulet's Rapture (Curse of Clansmen and Kings #3) by Linnea Tanner. Fans of Jez Butterworth's Britannia will fall in love with this book."--Mary Ann Yarde for The Coffee Pot Book Club
"The third book in Curse of Clansmen and Kings, Amulet's Rapture by Linnea Tanner is the story of the survival and transformation of Catrin. The plot is packed with action, politics, corruption, ambition, prophecies, and ancient magic. I cannot wait for the next book to come out. With a gripping plot, mindblowing storytelling, and unpredictable twists, Amulet's Rapture by Linnea Tanner is going to be among my top three favorites of this year."--Ankita Shukla for Readers' Favorite
"The audio version of Amulet's Rapture is a fascinating listen. The narrator absolutely nails tone, character changes, and emphasis. In addition, the particularly intense scenes in which Catrin is being threatened are completely captivating when read by the narrator, Kristen James. What would be moving moments if read in paperback or Kindle become quite terrifying and extremely uncomfortable when listening to the narrator's interpretation of the text-the story is truly brought to life. Though it is primarily a fantasy, readers who seek a strong romantic feel to their fantasies will appreciate Tanner's writing. She peppers her plot with just enough of these steamy scenes to keep romance fans invested." --Literary Titan

But Marcellus has been wounded and his memories of Catrin and their secret marriage were erased by a dark Druidess. Though Marcellus reunites with Catrin in Gaul and becomes her ally as she struggles to survive the brutality of her Roman master, he questions the legitimacy of their marriage and hesitates to help her escape and retake her kingdom. If their forbidden love and alliance are discovered, her dreams of returning to her Celtic home with Marcellus will be shattered.

If you have not yet read the first two books in the series, please do not read the rest of this review. Although I guarantee no spoilers from this book, I am unable to review Amulet's Rapture without revealing some spoilers of events that occurred Apollo's Raven and Dagger's Destiny.
While the events in Apollo's Raven and Dagger's Destiny had spanned only a few months, Amulet's Rapture covers a period of three years. Although there is less action in this installment, there is a greater focus on character development. After the brutal conclusion to Dagger's Destiny, Catrin has been enslaved by the Roman Decimus, who believes her to be an oracle of Apollo. He disguises her as a male so that her true identity will not be discovered and so that the soldiers will not defile her, since he believes her prophetic abilities require her to be chaste. The more Catrin suffers, the further she strays from her love for Marcellus, turning instead toward hate and vengeance. Meanwhile, Marcellus, whose memory was erased by Rhan and Marrock, is struggling internally, feeling as though he has lost his identity. He returns to Eliana, the married older woman who had taken his virginity in his youth, and due to Catrin's mystical powers, Catrin bears witness to his infidelity. In the events that follow, Marcellus experiences personal growth relating to duty, honor, and loyalty.
Some of the dialogue in the series has felt a bit forced, but this issue was especially prominent in Amulet's Rapture. Additionally, there were numerous errors in the text. Although I received two review copies of this book from two different sources, I had actually purchased a copy as well, and the errors are present in both editions. While I felt that the story was stimulating and engaging, I was frequently distracted by the dialogue and errors. Another round of editing would greatly improve the quality of the book.
Overall, I greatly enjoyed this book and I am really looking forward to the author publishing the next installment!
This trilogy is one of my favorite books of the year.
Marcellus, with his mind, wiped clean of Catrin and his life in Britannia reconnects with Catrin. Their love and forbidden relationship force the Roman Commander to sell Catrin into the Gladiator arena. Separated by the fates, the selfishness, and lies of the Roman Commander, both must find their way back together. The journey is long with deadly pitfalls at each step. Longing to return home, Catrin fights what the fates have thrown in her way. Time will tell whether Catrin can return home and what if anything is left to return to and whether she will be reunited with Marcellus.
Linnea Tanner once again captures the attention of her audience and weaves a magical story of love, survival and morality. Tanner is skilled at storytelling and weaving a supernatural based story using myth and legend as well as being historically accurate. Tanner is vivid in her descriptions and dialog taking her audience along on an intense journey of transformation and survival.
Tanner gives her audience excitement, passion, and profound experiences that resonate on several levels. Tanner has developed a strong storyline with character development that ensures the characters to be realistic and believable.
Kristen James delivers a performance that is not only memorable but draws the listener into the book more deeply as the story builds. Her change in tones and rhythm keep the story moving at a steady pace. Her performance adds to an already riveting book making it richer and more captivating.
There were no issues with the production or quality of this book.
While it is the third book in the series, it can still be read without having read the others. I would recommend that you read the entire series because this is a top-notch series that is well done. Tanner is a masterful word crafter. I look forward to hearing book 4!
