Description

I loved all the characters, the battles, and the Norse-mythology world plus creatures, but having these traveling sections repeated until the end of the novel did get tiresome at times. I'm also a Viking re-enactor and enjoy nothing more than standing in the shield wall with my three sons, who are as passionate about swords and axes as I am (when I'm not stuck in my coat of mail; it's harder than it looks). Battle Sequences: One of the many reasons why John Gwynne is among my favourite authors is that his detailed/descriptive writing of battle sequences where I can easily track what is happening on the battlefield.

First, and most importantly, it was actually gripping and I couldn't put the book down, especially in the last 30%. This is yet another incredible book from John Gwynne, and for me cements him as the best active fantasy author. It has a well developed and immersive Viking world that feels real and much better then a TV show could ever produce.And also, the character interaction especially the conversation between the main characters were handled wonderfully and I would love to read more of other characters reaction when they find out Orka is the Skullsplitter. As tension mounts with each passing page, Gwynne delivers exhilarating fights and gruesome battles with such vivid prose the choreography jumps off the page. I loved that most of the characters are honorable to their family and friends, look out for each other, and recognize their mistakes. En este punto ya he comprobado que Gwynne tiene la costumbre de darme de lo mejorcito en batallas que he leído.

Ed and I have like wolves pounced on this second instalment the second it was finished, and we loved it!My minor issue with the pacing aside, The Hunger of the Gods have furious battle scenes, savage display of power, intricate world-building, and well-written characters. I learned later that some copies had extra material in this concern and some didn't for some reason. Hunger of the Gods was my most anticipated book of the year, after absolutely loving Shadow of the Gods last year. Gwynne, a Viking reenactor, puts in the work, with fine historical details that make the story come to life. By this, I mean that Gwynne is emulating what one of my favorite authors and series of all time did, and that is Joe Abercrombie's style on Sand dan Glokta and Jezal dan Luthar in The First Law trilogy.

I live on the south coast of the UK with my beautiful wife, three sons and my daughter, and an assortment of animals (at the moment three dogs, a horse and a lamb who thinks she's a dog).A book of forbidden magic with the power to raise the wolf god Ulfrir from the dead – and bring about a battle that will shake the foundations of the earth. Though some characters, like Svik and Einar, took more of a supporting role/backseat in this installment. The following three books in the series – Valour, Ruin and Wrath, were all shortlisted for the David Gemmell Legend Award for Best Fantasy Novels of 2014, 2015 and 2016. Considering her relatively older age, prowess, and expertise in war, she was already ahead in wisdom (when she's not too pissed, at least) compared to many other characters in the series. Gwynne made my life much easier by including a recap section at the beginning, a glossary for the characters and even a pronunciation guide.
