    I loved reading this book..it was really well researched by the author concerning the role Druids played in the Celtic Religion and the beliefs of the Celtic people in pre Christian Europe The book takes place in Europe during the Gallic wars in Gaul In case anyone does not know where Gaul is..Gaul is modern day France Although this book is part of the historical fiction genre some characters were real people The young Celtic warrior Vercingetorix and Julius Caesar were real people..i
