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.

Thoroughly enjoyable mix of history (what we know of the time and what we think) with just enough magic and fantasy to add spice. Well done characters that are put together and believable. I recommend reading this to anyone that would enjoy a book that doesn't hide character and plot flaws with an excess of magic.

As an actual trained historian I like well written books with a historical foundation. I loved this book and can't wait for the rest of this trilogy. Characters I've become invested in, incredible interaction, and page-turning prose with dialogue that invites the reader into the story.

The beginning chapters almost made me put the book aside. Glad I gave it another try. The characters are engaging and now I can not wait to acquire the rest of the series.
