    When I picked up this series a few years ago I was not expecting a huge amount, I'd heard of Angus Watson but not yet read any of his books. It was therefore a beautiful surprise to find so much enjoyment in the first book, characters that I believed were real and could get behind, a story that raised my heart rate and a sense of humour in the writing that had me laughing out loud. The second book scared the shit out of me. Characters that I loved were placed in some of the most horrifying and When I picked up this series a few years ago I was not expecting a huge amount, I'd heard of Angus Watson but not yet read any of his books. It was therefore a beautiful surprise to find so much enjoyment in the first book, characters that I believed were real and could get behind, a story that raised my heart rate and a sense of humour in the writing that had me laughing out loud. The second book scared the shit out of me. Characters that I loved were placed in some of the most horrifying and loathsome conditions imaginable. I couldn't figure out how they would even get out of the situation they were in let alone achieve their ultimate objective. This brings us to the grand finale. Where Gods Fear to Go is a fantastic end to an exciting and entertaining series. It continues the quest of the Wootah to get Ottar the Moaner to the Meadows where, apparently, he will stop the growing apocalypse and bring peace to the land. Accompanied by the remains of the deadly Calnians they face beastly monstrosities who are all trying trying to kill them, wonders of nature that are all trying to kill them and finally they are under threat their own humanity and insecurities, as they are all not sure whether to kill each other! It's bloody epic and epically bloody. I cant imagine it's easy to wrap everything after three books but Watson pulls it off. If you've not heard of this series I cannot recommend it enough. If you've had your fill of 800 page epics with Gary Stu's defying thousands of deities and a dozen time jumps give this one a try. If you'd like to read about one of THE baddest group of warriors ever to grace the pages of fantasy and wont get all butt hurt that they are women pick it up. If you do get butt hurt get your shit together. 10/10 Keef the Beserker. Forever.

Receiving a copy of the novel did not influence my thoughts or opinions. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Where Gods Fear to Go is the PERFECT ending to one of my favorite historical fantasy trilogies EVER. Watson doesn’t hold any punches when it comes to constantly bombarding our heroes with immeasurable obstacles, giant monsters made of wasps, mind-reading Sasquatch, and love octagons. You are constantly going from being on the edge of your seat to in the floor laughing hysterically. There isn’t a single moment of letup and this almost 500 page addition to the West of West series will, unfortunately, be over before you know it. Finn the Deep will just have to live inside my mind from now on. Being handsome and surprisingly cunning while also being a total dick. If you have read my past reviews for You Die When You Die and The Land You Never Leave, you’ll note that I consistently talk about the characters being the reason I love this series so much. Every single one of them is balls-to-the-wall insane, yet they somehow manage to stay alive despite their circumstances. While there may be some killing within the group because, you know… sh*t happens, they all have each others’ backs when it comes down to the nitty-gritty. While it is odd to say that the characters themselves do not realize they are being humorous, I cannot count how many times I was just about brought to tears by the hilariousness of their actions and circumstances. I felt like I was watching a group of Flokis (Vikings reference) running around with aptly-named weapons and alchemical bowls. I mean, come on. An axe called arse-splitter? What else do you need? So yeah, this series is like Vikings written by Douglas Adams on shrooms. It is epic in scale, bloody in execution, and one of the most original stories I have ever read. Period. I have yet to come across another book or series like West of West and I’ll be hard pressed to actually search one out. You need Angus Watson in your life, and I don’t think you should go another day without meeting Finnbogi. If you enjoy fantasy at all, especially when it is infused with humor, giant monsters, alchemically enhanced warriors, and characters like the Mushroom Men, add this series to your list. You won’t regret it.

    Woootahhh! Where Gods Fear to Go is the final book in the West of West trilogy by Angus Watson. Our journey picks up right where the last book leaves off. It's finally time to find out what is in the Meadows and see if our heroes can prevent it from destroying the world. That is, if they can get out of a dangerous situation with the Squatches first. When I picked up this series I never imagined how much zany fun I was in store for or how much this unlikely group of misfit characters would grow on Woootahhh! Where Gods Fear to Go is the final book in the West of West trilogy by Angus Watson. Our journey picks up right where the last book leaves off. It's finally time to find out what is in the Meadows and see if our heroes can prevent it from destroying the world. That is, if they can get out of a dangerous situation with the Squatches first. When I picked up this series I never imagined how much zany fun I was in store for or how much this unlikely group of misfit characters would grow on me. There are so many touching moments on the final leg of the journey along with some pretty impressive character growth. I absolutely adored Paloma and Freydis's side journey together. Finn actually starting to grow up and accept responsibility for his actions. The Owsla realizing that there's more to life than just killing and learning how to be more human. Poor Eric the Angry, though really it's not all bad afterwards. Watson's imagination continues to be bizarrely wonderful. While I don't think his monstrous creations quite achieved the greatness of the ones in the Badlands, the horrors of the Meadows are sufficiently weird and disconcerting that I was kept on the edge of my seat worried for what was going to happen next. And with good reason. Given the nature of the group's quest, not everyone makes it to the grand finale. I listened to the audio book narrated by Sean Barrett. His performance is absolutely perfect for this series. I need to listen to more stories narrated by him. This was such a nice ending to one of the most imaginative series I've read. Make sure you read the afterward at the end. The historical notes about what Watson based this series on are fascinating.

    Everyone who is ANYONE will read this series. You ever wonder if there's something else out there that's not based on Knights and Castles, Kings and Queens? Something a little different in terms setting, plot and direction?? The series is full of humor and heart! It's addictive in a dangerous way for those of us who WORK and need to WORK but find ourselves sitting up reading until the eyeballs bleed instead!! This is severely underrated and it's a travesty!!!!

    What an amazing series, one of the best I've ever read, and what a great fucking ending. I think the very end of this book was beautiful and endearing, Otto's story made me cry. Great read. Wooootah!

    This series. I loved this from start to finish. So don't be a dick, and hurry up to start your, Viking/alchemical enhanced native American warrior ladies, adventure. Can't wait to see what he does next.

    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 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!

    What a blast of a book and a fantastic finish to the series.. Seriously Angus Watson is my favourite British author, what a nutty imagination. His two series are a must buy for everyone.. Hopefully we won't be waiting too long for his next new idea

    A fantastic finish to a brilliant series. It's a crazy adventure with some of the most bizarre phrases, monsters, characters and plot twists. However these are the ingredients that make this series so unique and different to 99% of the market this book sits in. If you have started on this series I can recommend the age of iron series is equally brilliant. Gus Watson's worlds are second to none and need to be explored by everyone. ** note. Sean Barrett is phenomenal at narrating this series

    I know this is netgalley but I had already purchased this book before I was fortunate to get a copy as an ARC (not so advanced methinks) i really enjoyed the previous books and this one was the icing on the cake, funny, exciting, thrilling and moving all in equal measures, absolute joy to read and I heartily recommend this book

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Another romping adventure from the wootah and calnians. This was with even more danger and close calls. Plus a few deaths. When Erik the angry died I felt like part of the book was going to be missing. His humour saved a lot of these books. That and Finns narcissistic brooding nature. But Finn comes into his own in this one and saves them all more than once. For someone dubbed The Boggy he sure has helped them out an awful lot with his speaking with animals trick. Anyway this is a good one. I Another romping adventure from the wootah and calnians. This was with even more danger and close calls. Plus a few deaths.

Apart from the errors, still a 5 star read. From my shelf anyway.

    An excellent end to a trilogy that was funny and dark at the same time. I found this book engrossing and entertaining, with a great cast of characters and a wonderful world building. Highly recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    When I finished "Iron Age" trilogy by Angus Watson, I've got an impression that this author knows how to finish series, which unfortunately not many author do (IMHO). I was hopping that the same case will be here. Unfortunately it wasn't the case. Not that he didn't wrapped up the story, he did, but not the way that I liked. The book itself was very scattered, which is very unusual for this author, as I read all his books.

I would rank this book as 2.5 stars, but because I loved the previous one in the series, and his other works were good as well, I just can't floor the score. I hope that Angus will return to his best. Waiting to his next series.

    DNF at 43%. Never left a 3rd book in a trilogy, but it was becoming, FOR ME, so boring for so looong. I`ll give 2 stars (instead of one) because i think it became too repetitive (plot, relations, action scenes) for my taste, but if you really liked de second book, this one will be your cup of tea. Since the second half of the second book, i felt like i was reading just out of curiosity to know the end of the journey, but it was becoming a "job" of reading, whithout any good moments.
