Waiting on Wednesday : You Die When You Die (West of West #1) by Angus Watson

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  My book this week is : You Die When You Die (West of West #1) by Angus Watson.  I really like the sound of this one – it’s already released in the US (yesterday I think) – just a couple more weeks and then I can grab a copy of this.

you die whenYou 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.

    Certainly one of the more awesome titles around. Haven’t seen much buzz around the book yet, I would like to see other’s opinions.

    It sounds like the kind of book that’s difficult to put down… And that cover is mesmerizing! 🙂

    I like to imagine Ivan Drago (from Rocky) saying the title XD

    That’s a great title – it sounds just a bit on the bleak side for me just now… But I look forward to hearing what you make of it:)
