The second book in Angus Watson's epic Iron Age fantasy trilogy.
LEADERS ARE FORGED IN THE FIRES OF WAR
Iron Age warriors Dug and Lowa captured Maidun castle and freed its slaves. But now they must defend it.
A Roman invasion is coming from Gaul, but rather than uniting to defend their home, the British tribes go to battle with each other and see Maidun as an easy target.
Meanwhile, Lowa's spies infiltrate Gaul, discovering the Romans have recruited British druids. And Maidunite Ragnall finds his loyalties torn when he meets Rome's charismatic general, Julius Caesar.
War is coming. Who will pay its price?

Thoroughly enjoyable. An interesting take on early history, with wonderful characters in a surprising plot line.
The gore can be offsetting (how the author even thought of such gruesome thoughts is beyond me) but I just kept reading. I am glad I did. Just when I thought I could not read another gory detail, in came the humor. The humor jumps in and takes away the horror. I loved the humor. The storyline is good and characters are well developed. The first two novels were best in my opinion: The third book in this trilogy brings in love element expands on a love element which started in book two. The humor is not as evident in book three yet it is there. The main character, and old warrior, is such a loveable character. Definitely, I recommend this one.
I just stumbled onto tjis series and it became an immediate favorite.
