Publisher's Summary

You die when you die....

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 lives only 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, powerful tribes, an unforgiving land, and each other as they cross a continent to fulfill a prophecy.

Hilarious Viking Adventure in the new world

A slow start reveals a rich landscape with vivid characters, hilarious dialogue, and heart pounding action.

Foul an Owl!!

This really was a great read/listen. Just the kind of thing I enjoy. An interesting but fast paced story with varied and relatable characters that is never too dull. Spice it up with lots of humor, some coarse language, and plenty of gritty action and you 've got a winner in my book. I will definitely follow this series. I enjoyed the Age of Iron series as well. Kudos Mr. Watson!

Humerous, relatable, gritty.

Historical fantasy fiction. Coming of age in a far-flung Viking society with alchemy and spirit animals. I so related to Finn.

Enjoyable

Watson's books are hard to classify. While they are fantasy there is also historical fiction in there, definitely not young adult fantasy. It might lean towards grimdark without being too grim or too dark. This and his other books are amusing, like if Mark Twain tried to write grimdark fantasy.

Just Waiting

Would you consider the audio edition of You Die When You Die to be better than the print version?

I have never read the print version, I would have probably never finished it.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting part of the story is realizing some characters had powers. Least interesting? How I felt like I was just waiting for the book to end.

Which character – as performed by Sean Barrett – was your favorite?

I believe his name was Keith. He carried A** Splitter.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I would like to listen to the second book. I believe the story is a great origin story for other things to expand upon. If it's not out there then it should be.
