Publisher's Summary

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?

Perfect blend of historical fiction and fantasy

I have been waiting for book two to come out on Audible because I really enjoyed book one- this book did not disappoint. The same narrator, Sean Barrett, who is such a perfect fit for this setting! I've listened to other narrative books he has done and he is becoming a favorite! There is more magic In book two and carries on with the same core characters. The author adds that the battles and Roman characters appear to be accurate according to Roman history. Gives it a fun imaginative twist to epic fantasy. I Look forward to the audible release of book three!

Great sequel

An excellent follow-up to the engaging first book. The characters that you loved (and hated ) are back but this book is far more martial in nature. There are some new players on the scene including the one and only Julius Caesar. The story is full of action , much of it quite gruesome. Great fun but with a powerful ending.

Just Brill

absolutely loved it. characterisation is just fantastic. So refreshing to hear some Scottish and other British accents. as the author states based loosely on real events with a huge chunk of imagination and story telling!

Love Angus Watson!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Great story in this 2nd set in the series. I have enjoyed it from start to finish - something different and always enthralling.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Doug was my favourite character, and I was glad he continued in this 2nd part even if as a ghostly figure. I find Spring to be a very interesting character as well.

What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He's a fabulous narrator - it adds so much to the story. His range of voices is amazing.
