I loved these books. This is a retelling of the Tyrfing Saga. Melanie Karsak weaves people, gods, and supernatural events into a riveting story. You will think about this book long after you have finished it. 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.
