About the Author
Eric Schumacher was born in Los Angeles in 1968. He is the author of two historical fiction novels, God's Hammer and its sequel, Raven's Feast. Both tell the story of the first Christian king of Viking Norway, Hakon Haraldsson, and his struggles to gain and hold the High Seat of his realm. Eric's fascination with Vikings and medieval history began at a young age, though exactly why is not clear. While Los Angeles has its own unique history, there are no destroyed monasteries or Viking burial sites or hidden hoards buried in fields. Still, from the earliest age, he was drawn to books about Viking kings and warlords and was fascinated by their stories and the turbulent times in which they lived. He began writing as a child, though never considered it as a career until he was in his second year of international business school and living in Germany. Poor timing to be sure, but better late than never. It was there that Eric began researching and writing God's Hammer, his first novel. Eric now resides in Santa Barbara with his wife, his two children, and his dog.
Shaun Grindell, actor and Earphones Award-winning narrator, was born and raised in Southampton, England. His training includes the Calland School of Speech and Drama and the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in London. He has been seen on stage in London and Las Vegas.

As a king in his prime he had a Big Ego and a temper that rooked no question by those who had good, valid input. But Hakon just ignored it and got angry if he didn’t like it.
As a king past his physical prime he was obstinate, maudlin at his long time friends getting bumped off, and was back to being a Super Gloomy Gus who forgot just who got him into the kingship (Hint: it wasn’t his poor head work and allowing a family of killers go free, only to have them return to devastate Old Norway and drive back the advance of the Nordic culture.
At the end he was a petty tyrant in all but name.

Like the previous two books of Hakon's Saga, I have found this book so engrossing that, had I not had other commitments, I would have read each at a single sitting.
