Swords of Good Men by Snorri Kristjansson A Bloody Great Viking Tale

Unusual POV style which was a bit difficult at the start but worked so well as the book went on. A relentless pace and fantastic juggling of multiple characters made this a fantastic read.

The book is extremely bloody but the characters are still well drawn and the story is fabulously told.

The whole story is laid out in intertwining plots which gradually come together in several amazing climaxes.

Snorri manages to construct an amazing fantasy novel which sets up a hopefully long series.

Not for those afraid of blood (or Christians)



About Paul Walsh

I'm a big fan of fantasy and scifi, which would make up most of my reading but will branch out often enough. Favourite authors vary over time but generally include Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Conn Iggulden, Robert Harris, Karen Maitlan, Kate Mosse, Anne Rice, Philip K Dick, Ray Bradbury. John Scalzi, Mark Lawrence, Pat Rothfuss and a host of others. I'm not the harshest reviewer but will note down a few words on all books I read.
