Snorri did it again. The book is nicely fast paced , characters are great and the violence suitably graphic plus a wonderful use of bad language the author is quite proud of.
The book is very different in many ways to the first one.
There is less of the continuous battle and more of a journey book, following the main characters as they disperse from the Stenvik , the site of book ones battles.
The occasional glimpse of the old Gods interfering and prodding are suitably interesting to give the mythical side of the book the right tone.The book settles down to three main characters and there plans and travels with the battles of Kings , Christian and Pagan sitting in the background.Much more character development than the first book showing Snorri isn’t a one trick pony and has a few strings of writing talent to his bow.
Snorri has set up a wonderful collision course and I can’t wait to see where he goes with book 3
