I fell asleep way past my bedtime night after night, picked up where I left off while sipping morning coffee. Read during lunch...it is that amazing and addicting. The location details and character building, the detailed joys and strife of family life, integral religious rituals and beliefs, the prowess and brutality of the raiding warriors, women as well as men, the depths of love to the horrors of hate, and Roc the wolf plus Loki the trickster. Omg, just read it.
A treasured find on Kindle Unlimited...now I can finally get some sleep!
We mortals are but playthings of the gods.
Hervor's rise from unwanted child with an unknown father to shieldmaiden & then leader of Odin's Valkyries is magnificently told.
The book ends differently than the actual Tyrfing Saga but I understand why the author chose to end it this way.
That being said, I am going back to re-read the first book, because the characters and the plot are so endearing I need to have them in my life for a little while longer! Excellent series!
I highly recommend this series.
