Publisher's Summary

The David Gemmell Award-shortlisted author of Age of Iron returns with the final book in his West of West trilogy, in which a mismatched group of refugees must battle monsters, an unforgiving land and each other as they cross a continent to fulfil a prophecy.

Battling across the Shining Mountains, the questers discover a land more terrifying and filled with more dangerous creatures than they could ever have imagined - and they've fought thunder lizards. The tentatively allied Wootah and Calnians must survive monster attacks, flash floods and tornadoes to uncover the secret of The Meadows. And then comes the hard part. To save themselves and everybody else they will travel west of west, deeper into danger, and do all that they can to defeat a goddess who has already killed all the other gods.

A fitting end to a gritty storyline

It was a bit gruesome at times, but overall this was an unexpectedly good series. The characters were unusually complex, both the heroes and the villains. Worth the credit.

Journey was great, ending just okay

I thought the ending was a little disappointing. After a long journey spanning 3 books, I thought the last fight would be a bit more epic. I also wished the author spent some time on their lives after the meadows. Putting aside my wishes, I loved this book and enjoyed everything that was revealed. Sean's performance was great as usual.

Is he the best writer of the modern age?

What a fabulous story teller, witty, intelligent and he’s got a grasp on the mystical, historical and the relationship between the two.

One of the best listens around

I really love Angus Watson's fun spin on "historical" fiction in which he transports us to an old place and time. He then throws a wild fantasy at us using what he knows about the place and time that is more fun to experience, for me, than almost any other author out there. Although all together different in delivery and scope I put these books right up there with Sandersons Stormlight series, the Warded Man, and all of my other favorite series that take me to a new exciting reality. Great series here and a great ending as well!

Great fantasy adventure series, Wow

Angus Watson delivers a well rounded adventure. Great characters with constant action and unexpected twists. Just enough humor and darkness with a touch of alchemy and mistisizum. Second series as good, if not better than the first.

Wootah! Wootah! Wootah!

Angus Watson's amazing gang of alchemically enhanced super women and the craziness of the Wootah tribe start this book right slap bang in trouble and pretty much stay there from start to finish despite travelling many, many miles! Watson throws so much at them you wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of kitchen sinks crash into Wolf the Fat's skull while he wasn't looking. From supernatural weather to even naturally treacherous terrain it is all set against out heroes from page 1 until you hear 'Audible hopes you enjoyed'.

In amongst all this of course we have the wonderful Finn the Deep trying desperately for validation and coming so close but somehow letting it slip through his grasp. A really wonderful character but far from alone in this wide and varied cast, the other Wootah tribe member are equally delightful with special mentions going to Erik and of course Keith!

Sean Barrett is once again the man charged with bringing the madness to our ears and as you would expect he continues his fine performances from the previous books. With his narration and Watson's writing it may mostly lack the keen hard edge of say a Pacey and Abercrombie combination, mortality is more gently treated, but there are some grisly scenes that will genuinely make you wince in this one.

This has been a tremendous and extremely inventive trilogy and I do love the way that Watson has based it on North America, in his historical note he certainly taught me a thing or two and it's fascinating to think of the likes of Finn, Keith and Erik roaming those vast plains.

Needless to say it would be madness to start with this one, it needs reading from the start and as a trilogy it's definitely worth thinking about if you want to embark on a grand fantasy adventure that never quite takes itself fully seriously and yet delivers genuine excitement and wide-ranging adventure!

superb

the depth of drama comedy & research is astounding. I dare anybody not to enjoy this or any of this author's work. Coupled magnificently with the narrator Sean Barret, who let's face it.. always delivers..it makes an epic listen every time.

Brilliant, author and narrator are a perfect combo

I was counting the days for the latest release from Abercrombie and Brent weeks etc and I admit when this was released I'd forgotten it was coming out. However, this has been my favourite. Book of the year for me.

Its just so fun, a great conclusion to the Trilogy. The historical notes that Angus adds are fascinating.
