LEADERS ARE FORGED IN THE FIRES OF WAR

Iron Age warriors Dug and Lowa captured Maidun castle and freed its slaves. But now they have conquered it, they must defend it.

A Roman invasion is coming from Gaul, but rather than uniting to protect their home, the British tribes battle each other – and see Maidun as an easy target.

Meanwhile, Lowa’s spies infiltrate Gaul, discovering the Romans have recruited bloodthirsty 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?

I’d like to thank the publishers for an arc of this novel in return for an honest review.  Once again Mr Kraftireader has helped me with this review.

An epic tale of lost love, betrayal, hatred, revenge and retribution.  All the favourite characters are back in the second book of the trilogy.  Lowe now the Warrior Queen of Maidun hoped to live a quiet existence, but finds that this is impossible with the fractured tribes of Britain.  Dug and Spring are back, hoping to live life in the slow lane.  However, within the first few chapters the book sets out what is to come, with epic battles, individual heroism and bouts of total stupidity.

The first book Age of Iron was a great read and this one follows on in the same way.  I loved the characters Lowe, Dug and Spring and how their story continues on, from the first meeting to several years later.  Lowe is my favourite character, the Queen is intelligent, brave and can fire a bow better than Robin Hood!

The druid Felix is back and up to no good, he is my second favourite character.  The power he holds over others, his ruthless nature and his use of magic is spellbinding.  You can’t help but to despise him because of his lack of honour and feelings for others.

I loved reading Clash of Iron, part two of the trilogy, it had me hooked yet again, from the first battle to the heartrending end!  I was shocked with the turn of events and I am intrigued of the how the trilogy will manifest.

If you have enjoyed reading Simon Scarrow’s legion series you will appreciate and devour this new trilogy that Angus Watson has brought us.  Highly recommended 5/5* read.
