With echoes of Beowulf, Shakespeare, Wagner, and Tolkien, the carefully constructed characters and their individual stories are woven together in a kaleidoscope of drama, action, tragedy and redemption. All of this is set against a rich knowledge of the historical and archeological background of early 8th century Scandinavia. The story brings to life a time during the Dark Ages when ancient and emerging cultures were colliding. Much of the context may be new and unfamiliar, but it remains completely compelling as we are bound to the fates of Erlan and Lilla and where they will take us.
If you like a story written with the pace and intricacy of George RR Martin, the elegance and depth of Steinbeck, and the imagination and reverence of CS Lewis, then read this book. A cracking debut.
The story becomes increasingly mysterious and mythical and leaves you with plenty of desire to want to know where Hakan will end up....
Next book please....
