“The Allfather Paradox” takes the reader on an immersive and compelling ride through a world where Christianity does not form the basis of two millenia of Western Civilisation. Along the way, Sharpe displays an enviable knowledge of Norse mythology and Old Norse. The names of people and places echo our own world just enough to cement the willing disbelief of the reader and tantalise them with glimpses of the common roots of Old Germanic languages and modern English.
Analogues to real-world historical events and people are identifiable, leaving the reader keen to find and identify the next one in the text. There is even the odd splash of contemporary social and political commentary, which caused me a wry smile for their cleverness without their being overly polemic or preachy.
If I were to equate “The Allfather Paradox” with an already well known althist book, it would be with Robert Sobel’s “For Want of a Nail: What if Burgoyne Had Won at Saratoga”. Fans of the genre know that this book stands out for its believability, plausibility, and the depth of historical knowledge the author must have had to write it. Sharpe displays these same traits, making his debut novel well worth reading and leaving the reader hungry for the next book.
Clearly a lot of intelligence, effort and research has gone into telling such a compelling story where I found myself turning page after page.
What stood out most for me was the sense of realism that was created in an unknown world that was only achievable by the author displaying a clear knowledge of Norse mythology.
A book I will happily read again and again and truly can’t wait for more instalments from this universe.

Pretty gory and not suited for younger readers.
