Blog Tour Spotlight: Hag of the Hills by J.T.T. Ryder

Today I have a tour spotlight for you! In this post I’ll take you through the blurb, about the author, and a few tour excerpts. If you’d like to follow along with the tour, you can find the full tour schedule here.

Premise

“Nothing is unconquerable; even our gods can die.”

Brennus is destined from birth to become a warrior, despite his farmer’s life. But when the Hillmen kill his family and annihilate his clan, he now has the opportunity to avenge those who he loved.

Brennus must survive endless hordes of invading Hillmen and magic-wielding sidhe, aided by only a band of shifty mercenaries, and an ancient bronze sword.

Failure means his family and clan go unavenged. Victory will bring glory to Brennus and his ancestors.

Hag of the Hills is a heroic fantasy novel set in 200 B.C. on the Isle of Skye, steeped in Celtic mythology and culture.

What readers have to say

The world of Hag of the Hills comes alive in front of your eyes. I could see the green rolling hills, the fairy folk living under the mushrooms, the old hag and her colour changing dog – all while reading as well as long afterwards.

The Artsy Reader

It is obvious to see the amount of research Ryder put into writing Hag of the Hills. It is also not surprising to know he is an archaeologist specializing in the Iron Age, specifically the time this story takes place. The characters are well thought out and well written and while I did not always agree with their decisions, neither could I blame them.

Never Enough Books

The best part of the book was the attention to detail. The lengths the author went to to ensure that it all felt real. A very enjoyable readable in all.
