Leaders Are Forged in the Fires of War
Iron Age warriors Dug and Lowa captured Maidun castle and freed its slaves. But now they must defend it.
A Roman invasion is coming from Gaul, but rather than uniting to defend their home, the British tribes go to battle with each other - and see Maidun as an easy target.

Love this trilogy!

This is a great book! The first was funnier, but this one had a lot more action. Narrator is perfect for this trilogy! Can't wait for the third!

Story with humor, complexity and with good ending

Clash of Iron is sequel to Age of Iron and lives up to the expectations. This is a solid, entertaining book with some interesting historical background from Roman culture. Angus mentioned that Roman part in the book is accurate with few exceptions.

Book has much larger scope compare to the first one where Roman plans to invade Britain, and things are much more complicated due to politics/power grab within Britain's local tribes. There are more down to earth elements as well such as romance between Dug/Lowa and parent/daughter relationship between Dug/Lowa and Spring. Angus does a great job of mixing these themes seamlessly while adding humor that is not only unexpected but also very genuine. Sean is prefect for this book that his rough voice works well in delivering all elements of this book. Sean did well to the point that I laughed at humor and felt uncomfortable with some of the brutality and violence such as crucifixion. Book has a pretty good and satisfying bitter-sweet ending, so waiting for third book will not be too bad.

Overall, I really enjoyed the book and I highly recommend it as I wait for the next book in trilogy
