4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good!, 23 Sep 2006
This review is from: Viking 2: Sworn Brother (Paperback)
New (to me!) authors make me nervous. All too often, the shiny cover of the book promises a treat that the words within fail to deliver. Having being burnt rather too often of late, this time I decided to save my hard earned cash and borrowed Tim Severyn's trilogy from my local library instead. Typical! These books are definitely worth the money. The books have a great 'voice' and, even better, contain more Vikings than you can shake a stick at!

I've just finished book two and I loved it. Thorgils (the hero) is a wonderful travelling companion with whom to explore the mysteries, and peoples, of the ancient world. It's a really easy read too, even though we encounter real historical characters en route. There isn't a dull piece of prose to be found anywhere. I particularly enjoyed seeing how the Norse Gods fare against the White Christ and His followers. The similarities between the religions are fascinating. But changes are a-coming and the Old Wisdom is under threat. I even experienced a few pangs of fear for the intrepid Thorgils. I hope Odinn keeps on protecting him!

Buy all three books. A darn good read!
