Publisher's Summary

It is said that every man is haunted by one mistake....

The year is 881. Ten years have passed since 15-year-old Ceridwen set out from her Priory home to make her own life. She has known love and loss, triumph and heartbreak. Yet the Circle which has moved about her is largely intact, although the counterpoint has changed, bringing with it the hope of renewed love. Ceridwen and Sidroc build their new lives together on the Baltic island of Gotland, where they are free and unknown. The bond between them, always strong even when years and wars separated them, deepens quickly into the profound and exquisite love that Sidroc had always claimed was their shared fate. 

Their new island home is a place of peace and beauty. They make fast friends of the brew-house keeper Rannveig and her deaf son, Tindr, a young man who is both an expert hunter and deeply dedicated to the service of the Goddess Freyja. 

They work and plan for next year's sailing season, when they hope to send a shipment of rich goods to trade. They feel protected and safe - until the shattering arrival of the one person they fear most in the world....

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Another Favorite!

I have enjoyed every book in this series. The only disappointment is that I know they will eventually end! Nano’s voice is calming and easy to listen to, Octavia’s stories are always top notch!

Amazing Journey!

I have so enjoyed every aspect of this series. The writing is engaging and educational. The performance of the woman reading is amazing! Thank you for keeping the same actor, it greatly enhances the continuity of listening to the series.

A little disappointing.

I struggled to finish this book. It was very slow moving and not as good as the last book in the series.

Only a few more of these to read (sigh)

I have enjoyed the Ceridwen books -- 4 so far, and find them addictive. They are set in the 9th Century and are full of memorable characters. I have not researched whether the settings, tools, and environments are accurate, but they certainly seem so--and I am always intrigued to learn how LOW tech societies worked. The people in Ceridwen's life, and she herself, often push the boundaries of their societal roles, but not in ways that seem unbelievable. So as a dedicated "Outlander" fan, I can recommend these to you, though in comparison, the Ceridwen books do not have actual known historical events that strongly influence the plot. Randolf writes less history and less sexual detail (the descriptions are relatively restrained), but delightful books nevertheless.

THERE WAS OUTLANDER-NOW THERE IS OCTAVIA RANDOLPH!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

For those of you who have been trying to find a story as well written as OUTLANDER, here it is!!! This series is set in the 800s and is fully described so as to put you there. Each of the characters are well-described and their personalities made known. While the books are not as long as Diana Gabaldon's OUTLANDER, they are just as historically accurate and Octavia Randolph seems to write one a year, which keeps you waiting not as long...a real plus in my opinion. There is no time travel, but gives the reader an accurate sense of how peoples of the varying nations moved from land-to-land, settling, intermingling, inter-marrying to educate the reader on where we came from... This is a high-quality, well-narrated series that, if you enjoy reading about the Danes, will keep you "in the story". It will only be a matter of time before Hollywood gets its hands on it! : )

Totally absorbed in the 9th century

Reading well-written and well-researched Historical Fiction, I get the sense that I am solidly standing in the shoulders of my ancestors, able to better appreciate my humanity, to see from whence we have come and perhaps to know where we should be heading. I have loved each of the books in this series for many reasons; the characters, especially Ceridwen, the minute details of daily life in the past, the beautiful descriptions of the natural world...they have carried me away as only great literature can.

The Circle of Ceridwen Saga

I began this saga by reading Book I but I would often want to continue when I was too tired to keep my eyes open. I was hesitant to consider the Audible version of Book II only because I was afraid that the narrator might not do justice to it. I was so pleasantly surprised by Nano Nagle. She is the perfect narrator for this series. She has a pleasant voice and the text flows easily from her without hesitation. She produces believable voice for every character. I am so impressed by her. I cannot wait for her to complete the Audible version of Book V.

I am very pleased that she has other narrations available through Audible and I will chose one of those while I wait for Book V. I fall asleep listening to her soothing voice every night now. Thank you Nano Nagle for sharing your talent in this way and thank you, Octavia Randolph for choosing her for your series!

Simply awsome

This series has started my reading. I came across it by accident. Now i cannot stop this series The way the author brings back things from previous books is so well done. It is like listening to someone recount a story that they themselves lived. The narration is by the same person in each book. She is very well spoken and has an accent that tends to be appropriate for all the lands she is speaking for. I have already started to collect the paperback books just to have for my family.

Love this series

With all my heart and soul. My words feel so inadequate to describe the many emotions that Octavia Randolph evokes with her writings. I love this period of time in the history of England and Scandinavia and these stories of Ceridwen and Sidroc are so realistic that one is drawn into them as a participant and not an observer. Nano Nagle’s narration is perfection and I cannot imagine anyone else bringing these stories alive.

Love it, thank you Octavia.

I found this book hard to put down and learnt so much about the life in that time. The characters didn't disappoint. Very rich in many ways.

Delightful

An majestic and highly addictive audio series. The realistic portrayal of life during the 800s is beautifully written as Octavia has captured the emotions and life of the times. A must listen and read. Performance top class.

Ceridwen ‘s story

I read all 4 books back to back ; not wanting to leave a space between. The whole production of story and presentation gave me insight to those times, which I enjoyed very much.
