Curse of Clansmen and Kings on the Horizon
Changes are on the horizon for my epic Celtic series now titled Curse of Clansmen and Kings. Although the award-winning tale in Book 1: Apollo’s Raven will remain the same, it will premiere a new book cover in the near future that will reflect the heroine journey of the Celtic Warrior Princess Catrin and her relationship with Marcellus—the great-grandfather of Marc Antony. The series will follow the star-crossed lovers whom are partly based on the legacy of Mark Antony and Cleopatra, but with a Celtic twist.
Book 1: Apollo’s Raven Book Cover Reveal
Based on the feedback I’ve received, below is the final front cover for Apollo’s Raven:
A Celtic warrior princess is torn between her forbidden love for the enemy and duty to her people.
AWARD-WINNING APOLLO’S RAVEN sweeps you into an epic Celtic tale of forbidden love, mythological adventure, and political intrigue in Ancient Rome and Britannia. In 24 AD British kings hand-picked by Rome to rule are fighting each other for power. King Amren’s former queen, a powerful Druid, has cast a curse that Blood Wolf and the Raven will rise and destroy him. The king’s daughter, Catrin, learns to her dismay that she is the Raven and her banished half-brother is Blood Wolf. Trained as a warrior, Catrin must find a way to break the curse, but she is torn between her forbidden love for her father’s enemy, Marcellus, and loyalty to her people. She must summon the magic of the Ancient Druids to alter the dark prophecy that threatens the fates of everyone in her kingdom.
Will Catrin overcome and eradicate the ancient curse? Will she be able to embrace her forbidden love for Marcellus? Will she cease the war between Blood Wolf and King Amren and save her kingdom?

Book 2: Dagger’s Destiny Book Cover Reveal
Book 2 in the Curse of Clansmen and Kings series will now be titled DAGGER’S DESTINY. Subscribers will have an opportunity to win free advance copies of this book before it is released to the general public on October 1. The book cover for this book is shown below. Its theme is in keeping with Book 1: Apollo’s Raven.
A Celtic warrior princess accused of treason for aiding her enemy lover must win back her father’s love and trust.
In the rich and vibrant tale, author Linnea Tanner continues the epic tale of Catrin and Marcellus that began with the award-winning novel APOLLO’S RAVEN in the Curse of Clansmen and Kings Series.
War looms over 24 AD Britannia where rival tribal rulers fight each other for power and the Romans threaten to invade to settle their political differences. King Amren accuses his daughter, Catrin, of treason for aiding the Roman enemy and her lover, Marcellus. The ultimate punishment is death unless she can redeem herself. She must prove loyalty to her father by forsaking Marcellus and defending their kingdom—even to the death. Forged into a warrior, she must overcome tribulations and make the right decisions in her quest to break the curse that foretells her banished half-brother and the Roman Empire will destroy their kingdom.
Yet, when Catrin again reunites with Marcellus, she is torn between her love for him and duty to King Amren. She must ultimately face her greatest challenger that could destroy her life, freedom, and humanity.
Will Catrin finally break the ancient prophecy that looms over her kingdom? Will she abandon her forbidden love for Marcellus to win back her father’s trust and love: Can King Amren balance his brutality to maintain power for the love he feels for his daughter?
