You Die When You Die by Angus Watson (June 6, 2017 by Orbit)
Having enjoyed Watson’s Iron Age trilogy immensely, I was glad to learn he’ll be releasing the first of a brand new series this summer (West of West). It promises dark humor, visceral action, and a lot of blood…which sounds just about right, if you’ve read the author’s previous books! Plus just get a load of that title.
You can’t change your fate – so throw yourself into battle, because you’ll either win or wake up drinking mead in the halls of your ancestors. That’s what Finn’s tribe believe.
But when their settlement is massacred by a hostile tribe and Finn and several friends, companions and rivals make their escape across a brutal, unfamiliar landscape, Finn will fight harder than he’s ever fought in his life. He wants to live – even if he only lives long enough to tell Thyri Treelegs how he feels about her.
The David Gemmell Award nominated author of Age of Iron returns with You Die When You Die – in which a mismatched group of refugees battle animals and monsters, determined assassins, depraved tribes, an unforgiving land and each other as they cross a continent to fulfil a prophecy.”
