WARHORN (Sons of Iberia)The story drew me in and kept me spellbound till the very end. The pace picks up fast and barrels along. Emotions envelop and action is vividly depicted in great choice of words and metaphor. One is totally absorbed in the history and culture of long ago Spain in a tantalizing tale with fascinating fictional characters. History, ecology and story woven together wonderfully and with author's notes and maps makes for excellence. I look forward to the next saga of Caros and his inimitable companions!

Enjoyed this book immensely. I like a book that has strong characters in it, ones who you really get to love and hate along the way. Caros the young trader who knows nothing about how to become a warrior, his heart set on revenge. He learns through the other wise warriors and facinating tribes what it takes to become the hero warrior everyone sees in him especially Hannibal Barca. Loved the banter between Neugan the tracker and Caros. Fantastic fight scenes, you can actually picture yourself on the various battlegrounds, the tension unreal, the men and horses anxiety, the smells, sweat,rage and thirst for blood. If you like action, adventure, love, history, then this is the book to read. Well done to the author, can't wait for the next book.

Some of the proof reading needed improving and how many times can you use the word 'yup'.
Still that is a only the smallest of criticisms overall a great read well researched certainly a page turner will look forward to Caro's return in 2014.

Quite an usual aspect of ancient history and the incessant tribal warfare and empire building. An excellent introduction to an Iberian warrior, albeit reluctant at first, and I am looking forward to the next episode. Thoroughly recommended read.

This is a well written, fast moving story set in a time and place that not many of us will be familiar with. Bauer has to be congratulated on his thorough research into the period and his skill at conjuring up this pre-Christian world, with its many warring tribes. Definitely a book for the boys and a great start to his Sons of Iberia series.

I found this book highly entertaining and a cracking good read, cannot wait for more adventures of Caros. There are obvious e book typo errors but did not detract from my enjoyment.

Caros' life is ripped apart when his family are brutally murdered in an act of war. In the aftermath his lot falls in with warriors but from free will that he stays. The need to redeem his father's warhorn drives him on to punish the enemy and in the process he discovers a cunning for strategy and battle. His days of being a merchant lie behind him as he picks the path of war and his lot falls in with Hannibal (of elephant reknown.)
The battle scenes were brutal and bloody, and I admit to feeling a little queasy on one occasion. Warhorn is well written and the writing does evoke a reaction. I especially liked how the author described simple things such as Caros washing after a battle and scrubbing the blood and gore away.
A touch violent for a 5 star but a well deserved 4.
