Thursday is Thor’s day: A weekly look at my TBR stacks. Age of Iron (Iron Age #1) by Angus Watson

Ok, It’s that time of the week where I explore my ever-growing TBR stacks. I think we all probably have these huge stacks of books lying around that “one of these days” we will read. I hope it is not just me anyways. I thought each week I would just pick a book or series and shed some light on them and why I got them to read in the first place. I hope everybody will share what they think and get me reading them or maybe stick them back in the TBR stack. Thanks everybody!

This week I am going with Age of Iron by Angus Watson. I know I should have read this book a long time ago, but I have not for some reason. I know I really need to read this series (Iron Age). Seems like everybody is always recommending them and telling me how great they are. This book is definitely at the top of my TBR stacks. I can’t wait to dig into it (someday soon I hope!).

Age of Iron and Clash of Iron are out NOW!

Reign of Iron Is out September 29, 2015! From Orbit books! So go get yourself a copy!

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:
In his twenties, Angus Watson’s jobs ranged from forklift truck driver to investment banker. He spent his thirties on various assignments as a freelance writer, including looking for Bigfoot in the USA for the Telegraph, diving on the scuppered German fleet at Scapa Flow for the Financial Times and swimming with sea lions off the Galapagos Islands for the Times. Now entering his forties, Angus lives in London with his wife Nicola and baby son Charlie. As a fan of both historical fiction and epic fantasy, he 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.
