    "Thracian Princess" I have been lucky enough to travel to many of the Ancient Thracian sites in Bulgaria and also to see the golden treasures in the National History museum in Sofia. While there is some excellent information available on the subject, much of it is dry and rather academic. This book overturns this. It is very entertaining but at the same time you learn much from it. You are quickly drawn into the world(s) of the lead character, Veronica, as she moves from the present day, to Ancient Thrace and then back to her own time; the progression of the book is swift and you want to know what will happen next. The dialogue of ancient times is carefully chosen and avoids the frequent trap of historical novels of sounding like modern soap operas. Seuthes, the ancient Thracian king, comes across as alive and vivid as the present day characters. The ancient is however well contrasted with the ordinary, everyday of Veronica’s present. The fantastic elements, such as the... More > time travelling device, are understated, so that the reader readily accepts the story presented. One of the most outstanding parts of the book is where the author presents a review of the year’s events through the writing of Veronica’s Christmas letter to family and friends. Knowing little or nothing of this area or history is no matter; you quickly become acquainted with those times and with present day Bulgaria; it should inspire many to want to find out more and perhaps even visit the area for themselves.< Less
