Book Description

By the author of best selling novel, Warhorn - Sons of Iberia.

'Interesting time period, well written fiction to include how important new discoveries in weapon making were at the time. Waiting for more from your pen.' K. Jensen
'A gripping read, could'nt put it down. I read the whole book in two sittings, battles, romance and honour aplenty. Bring on the next one!' M. Wilson
'Its like Game of Thrones with more action.' J. Ives
'You describe the battle as if you’d been to war. Methinks you were a warrior in a previous life.' healthylifestyles

From north of the high mountains come the ferocious Celt warriors, ever hungry for war. In a night of terror and death, the lowly son of a coward finds himself fighting back to save himself and the beautiful Elhana.

Orphaned when only a young boy and victimised by his fellow villagers, Cullha grows up as a shepherd, learning to fend for himself and protect his charges. He discovers a love for the noble Iberian horse and his skill at handling them is quickly noticed by the tribe. As the son of a warrior branded a coward, Cullha has no standing or honour in the eyes of the tribe and lives precariously from day to day.

The warriors of the village march north to war against the invading Celt. Left behind with the few warriors to guard the women and children, Cullha seeks to gain the attention of Elhana while avoiding her lover, Luis, a warrior bent on revenge. In a night of violence and bloodshed, the dreaded Celt overwhelm the village and Cullha finds himself pitched together with Luis and Elhana in a battle to escape the savage enemy warriors. On a journey fraught with danger and sorrow, a small band of survivors escape the Celt and flee across the wild lands of ancient Iberia, battling nature, bandits and their own shortcomings. In the course of their journey, they meet the remnants of an Illergete column and rescue a weapon-smith with a powerful secret. The Celt are relentless in their pursuit and ultimately Cullha must risk everything to save Elhana and the secret the weapon-smith holds.

Warning: This novella contains violence, swearing and some sexual encounters.

Note: This is a stand alone short novel of approximately 46,000 words and not a full length novel.

More About the Author

As a child my playground was the wide open veldt with the blue African sky above. Jungle gyms grew naturally from seed and the pet store was just beyond the garden gate. I wore shoes under protest and then only to school and church. I needed a bath every single night.
I served as an ops medic in the army for two years and treated gunshot wounds and arrow strikes. I've swum in the crocodile-infested Okavango and seen entire villages succumb to malaria. I have hunted poachers and listened from my sleeping bag to hunting lions prowling and roaring beyond the firelight.
Life is a little tamer now. I have a beautiful wife and a strapping young man that is my son. In my spare time I write about what I love and what I love is the past. The very ancient past and the heroes of those times.
I am fortunate to have the life-experience I have. I draw greedily on this experience in writing of the lives of men and woman in a very much wilder Europe.
My first novel is Warhorn (Sons of Iberia). This is also the first book in an envisaged series called 'Sons of Iberia'. The series will follow the life of a young man from Spain during the 2nd Punic War fought between Carthage and Rome across Spain, France and Italy and involving many nationalities.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Riveting Read! 27 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another thrilling trip back through time to The Iberian Peninsular, where a warrior is not born he is made. In Cullha's case, one man's scorn slowly draws forth a spirited warrior from within the youth who is looked upon as only fit to mind horses and shovel the proverbial. Thus, half-starved and solely reliant upon his own hunting and foraging skills, his tools rudimentary at best, Cullha survives not only extreme hunger and disparaging insults due to long-held belief his father betrayed the tribe, he also suffers the first pangs of love: unrequited love. And yet, when the Celtic enemy attack and set to with slaughter, rape and pillage, it is the moment Cullha and a horse whom trusts him implicitly wage their own kind of war and all whilst three warriors and his love interest make good their escape. With death and plunder in their wake the Celts are dogged hunters, and not only are they hunting down the fugitives they're seeking a much greater prize: The Runeovex Secret! This is where the author has drawn on fact from the annals of history, and spun a sword-wielding page-turner to delight any fan of ancient warrior kingdoms combined with elements of rivalry and romance. Don't miss J. Glenn Baur's novel "Warhorn - Sons of Iberia".
