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.

Great book!

By the look of the cover, one would think this is some sorta guy-book, Viking with ax and shield. This is a bit misleading, yes there is violence in this book but it is well written. You come to care about the characters and its funny! The narrator does a great job with the different voices and keeping everything interesting. I love Fin's internal mental dialog - so funny.

A truly great saga style novel!

Wootah! This book was an amazing adventure story, that unlike most, which base on a lone character, gets you involved with a large array of them. As action packed, and dramatic as it is, it is also quite humorous throughout!

Hilarious Viking Adventure in the new world

not as slow as people say

other reviews say that it's hard to start and slow at the beginning. I didn't find that to be the case. yes it has some convoluted names and a great number of characters at the beginning that are a little hard to keep straight, but no worries it's thins down fairly quickly. overall a fantastic book 1 and I can't wait to read book 2. Angus Watson always tells a very fantastic tale

At first confused, then thoroughly enjoyed it ...

In the beginning, I struggled to keep track of who was who because of the odd, long names. The names sound cool like Finnbogi the Boggy, Sassa Lipchewer, Paloma Pronghorns, and Chogolisa Earthquake. Imagine that times 30! Once the character list dwindled to the main group and their pursuers, I was able to enjoy the story. The adventure doesn't come close to LoR but it's fun, entertaining, and has humor. Definitely made my commute less boring. I love Sean Barrett and his accent so the performance was spot on to me.

Clever story.

Good story with some tongue in cheek humor. Characters get in one trouble after another but always get out, although they do loose and adventurer or two along the way. Waiting on book 3.

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!
