Age of Iron by Angus Watson

age of iron
LEGENDS AREN'T BORN. THEY'RE MADE.

Dug Sealskinner is a down-on-his-luck mercenary traveling south to join up with King Zadar's army. But he keeps rescuing the wrong people.

First Spring, a child he finds scavenging on the battlefield, and then Lowa, one of Zadar's most fearsome warriors, who has vowed revenge on the king for her sister's execution.

Now Dug's on the wrong side of the thousands-strong army he hoped to join ­-- and worse, Zadar has bloodthirsty druid magic on his side. All Dug has is his war hammer, one small child, and one unpredictable, highly-trained warrior with a lust for revenge that might get them all killed . . .


About the Author: Angus Watson is an author and journalist living in London. He's written hundreds of features for many newspapers including the Times,Financial Times and the Telegraph, and the latter even sent him to look for Bigfoot. As a fan of both historical fiction and epic fantasy, Angus came up with the idea of writing a fantasy set in the Iron Age when exploring British hillforts for the Telegraph, and developed the story while walking Britain's ancient paths for further articles.

Review: I absolutely loved Age Of Iron...the factual events mixed in with the authors imagination makes for a brilliant read. The characters are strong, I particularly loved Dug and Spring - I'm very interested to see what happens with these two in the sequel - and the plot is dark, twisted and brilliant. There wasn't anything I didn't like about this book, and I cannot wait for more by this amazing writer!
