Northern Britain, Iron Age. Rian, a carefree young woman and promising apprentice healer, is enslaved by a spiteful trader and forced aboard a vessel to embark on a perilous sea voyage. They are in search of the fabled hunter known as the Walrus Mutterer, to recover something once stolen. The limits of Rian's endurance are tested not only by the cruelty of her captor, but their mysterious fellow passenger Pytheas The Greek - and the merciless sea that constantly endangers both their mission and their lives. A visceral evocation of ancient folklore and ritual, The Walrus Mutterer introduces an unforgettable cast of characters in an extraordinary, vividly imagined Celtic world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Highland Book Prize 2018, LONGLISTED; "A gripping, haunting and, at times, visceral novel... Lyrical and poetic prose, the author has created a convincing and entirely believable world... One of the best books I have read so far this year." Penny Ingham, Historical Novels Review (Editors' Choice); "An immersive evocation of ancient folklore and ritual, this novel's characterisation and fast pace make it a real page-turner which will keep you hooked." Scottish Field; "Utterly compelling...beautifully crafted...paints an exquisite pen picture." Undiscovered Scotland; "Haggith's woman's eye view of the Iron Age feels fresh and distinctive." Alastair Mabbott, Sunday Herald; "An ambitious and imaginative novel...believable and compelling." Jane Bradley, Scotsman; "We see what the world was like...for the Iron Age peoples, particularly the women. The few historical accounts we have of that time seldom feature women... Rian is a compelling heroine. Life for her is often harsh, uncompromising and dangerous, and yet she has insights and wisdom that we moderns may well envy." Margaret Elphinstone; "The Walrus Mutterer transported me to an extraordinary Iron Age world that resonated long after the final page - vivid, memorable, and utterly compelling." Helen Sedgwick; "Compelling." Lucinda Byatt, Historical Novels Review

“A believable Iron Age heroine”

This is an enjoyable read and the story flows tremendously well, much like the waters of the sea that the main character Rian is afloat upon for a lot of the story.
