About the Author

Angus Watson is an author and journalist living in London. He's written hundreds of features for many newspapers including the Times, Financial Times and the Telegraph, and the latter even sent him to look for Bigfoot. As a fan of both historical fiction and epic fantasy, Angus 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.

YOU DIE WHEN YOU DIE . . . You can't change your fate - so throw yourself into battle, because you'll either end the day a hero or drinking mead in the halls of the gods. That's what Finn's people believe. But Finn wants to live. When his settlement is massacred by a hostile nation, Finn plus several friends and rivals must make their escape across a brutal, unfamiliar landscape, and to survive, Finn will fight harder than he's ever fought before. The David Gemmell Award-nominated author of Age of Iron returns with You Die When You Die - an epic fantasy adventure in which a mismatched group of refugees battle animals and monsters, determined assassins, an unforgiving land and each other as they cross a continent to fulfil a prophecy. 'I loved every second of it . . . More please, as soon as is humanly possible!' The Eloquent Page 'Hugely entertaining' SFX 'A rip-roaring, swiftly paced adventure set in a sprawling and beautifully detailed world . . . sure to win the devotion of plenty of fans' RT Book Reviews 'The first book in Watson's new fantasy trilogy is raw, violent, and gritty . . . You Die When You Die blurs the lines between hero and villain into who lives and who dies. He who survives another day wins for the moment; tomorrow might be another story' Booklist

Dug Sealskinner, ein kampfesmuder Soldner, hilft standig den falschen Leuten. Da ware Spring, ein Madchen, das er auf dem Schlachtfeld findet.

Jetzt steht Dug auf der falschen Seite jenes Heeres, in das er ursprnglich eintreten wollte. Und nicht nur Zadars Krieger trachten ihm und seinen Gefhrten nach dem Leben, sondern auch ein blutrnstiger Druide mit schier unbezwingbaren Krften. Alles, was Dug dem entgegensetzen kann, sind seine Kriegsaxt, ein kleines Mdchen und die unbezhmbare Lowa, die sie noch alle ins Grab bringen wird. Ja, es ist ein guter Tag, um zu sterben.

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. Look out now for YOU DIE WHEN YOU DIE - first in a new historical fantasy series from Angus Watson. 'Watson's tale is gore soaked and profanity laden - full of visceral combat and earthy humor, and laced with subtle magic. The blend of historical accuracy and authorial liberties suggests an old-school sword-and-sorcery epic, though with some modern sensibilities thrown in for good measure!'
