BRIGANTIADEADLINE: 3 NOVEMBER

A Roman-British goddess is tricked by her brother into a one-way time portal to contemporary Britain. She ends up befriending a historian who specialises in Celtic paganism. Brigantia has to learn to adapt to this world that has forgotten her as she tries to return to her own time to defeat her brother to change the future… CLICK HERE!

Brigantia is a fantasy adventure story which addresses questions about equality and the state of the modern world. It weaves together history and mythology to create a world where the ancient gods are real – but depend on the belief of humans in order to maintain their power. Brigantia herself struggles with her newfound anonymity and relative powerlessness, which hampers her search for a way back to her own time. She must get home to regain her divine powers and prevent Veteris from spreading his evil across Britain. Brigantia is a story set in two worlds – contemporary Britain and the mystical ‘Otherworld’ which is Brigantia and Veteris’ home.
