Publisher's Summary

Legends aren't born. They're forged.
Dug Sealskinner is a down-on-his-luck mercenary travelling 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's vowed revenge on the king for her sister's execution.
Now Dug's on the wrong side of that 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 rescued child, and one unpredictable, highly-trained warrior with a lust for revenge that's going to get them all killed.... It's a glorious day to die.


Audible Editor Reviews

Age of Iron is book 1 in the hugely popular audiobook series Iron Age Trilogy by highly-acclaimed fantasy writer Angus Watson and narrated by English actor Sean Barrett. This spectacular series is a feast of iron-fuelled battles, evil, bloodshed and lust. Dug Sealskinner the travelling mercenary has joined forces with a child and a dangerously revengeful warrior to take on the entire army of King Zadar. They are unprepared and unarmed - death is imminent. The twists in this story are phenomenal and the writing is exceptional. This is a pulse-quickening saga where only dark magic holds the key to survival. Available now from Audible.

Refreshing take on fantasy.

Would you consider the audio edition of Age of Iron to be better than the print version?

I'm a great lover of audible and thought the narration by Sean Barrett really good. I haven't read the printed version but generally i find if the narrator paired with the book is good then i feel it adds extra enjoyment over any printed book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dug was a brilliant character and to me instantly likable. I found him to be funny and although a lot of the time he tried to stay out of trouble invariably he became the heroic savior....also I've never heard so much Badger related profanity in my life! Brilliant stuff!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Without giving too much away probably the inn scene when Dug meets Lowa.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Again not trying to give too much away probably Dugs love life and his attachment to spring.

Any additional comments?

I loved the setting of Iron age Britain and the way Angus Watson managed to combine real history with fantasy fiction. This gave the story a rich and believable feel. Can't wait for the next book.

I found it difficult after listening to the first two Raven's Shadow books to find something that held my attention. I am please to say this certainly did. The story moves along at a good pace, interesting character and some dark humor make this a must read if your looking for something to fill the space between Anthony Ryans next book....
