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.

a good yarn

Sean Barrett is without doubt a fabulous narrator so I feel most books he reads will usually be enjoyable. The story is good and I will definitely get part two when it is out. Dug is a fine character and there is an equally good supporting cast of characters. it's a typical road movie of revenge and mishap that chugs along at a comfortable pace. The historical notes have been kept in at the end which is helpful for me as like that sort of thing--if you tend to enjoy Bernard Cornwells Saxon or Arthur books, or a bit of Game of Thrones fantasy and are looking for a new tale, I reckon you will like this too-if you don't just send it back
