Product description


There's more to Vikings than beards, blood, and axes - Snorri Kristjansson gives you the whole package. (Mark Lawrence, bestselling author of Prince of Fools)

[A] rousing Viking-themed historical fantasy . . . Kristjansson's sprawling cast of colorful characters and eye for historical detail lend this story gratifying verisimilitude (Publishers Weekly)

Very engaging - very vibrant and realistic . . . an action-filled book with a heart-stopping plot and adrenalin-fuelled battle scenes. 9.8/10 (Fantasy-Faction)

The world feels real and lived in . . . Kristjansson's humour is woven throughout the book in subtle, yet fantastic ways . . . just about everything you'd want in an epic fantasy novel. an almost unforgettable Viking saga . . . Kristjansson is a force in the genre to be reckoned with. (Bookworm Blues)

A debut novel [that] has blown me away. The writing is so self-assured, I was gripped from beginning to end. I'm a little bit in awe, but rest assured I'll be keeping an eye out for this author's next novel.Highly recommended (The Eloquent Page)

Very much in the vein of David Gemmell, it's a Viking fantasy with a style not unlike Joe Abercrombie. The prose is quick, accomplished and action-packed. The actual action sequences here are literally breath-taking . . . Swords of Good Men would make a brilliant action film (Wilders Book Review)

Fans of Gemmell will devour Kristjansson's books

(Spec on Spec Fiction)

The characters are so realistic and captivating - recommend it to anyone who likes to read a good Viking story. (Night Owl)

Kristjansson's writing was very similar to Nathan Hawke's and David Gemmell's - there is no fluff. But, more like Hawke than Gemmell, Kristjansson writes the violence with gory detail, making the action very fun to read - the kind of stuff you'd see on History's new show, Vikings (A Bitter Draft)

A cracking yarn, (one that would make a great movie), filled with enough to satisfy any fan of Vikings and their mythology. The battle scenes are a beauty to read; chaotic, frenetic, gory, and not always with the expected outcome, they should appeal to fans of heroic fantasy . . . leaves the reader hungry for more (Starburst)

Book Description

Ulfar and his highborn cousin Geiri have one last stop on their long journey - but the Viking town of Stenvik is filled with dangerous men: a 'brutal, bloody book' (MARK LAWRENCE on Goodreads), a riveting adventure of clashing Viking powers.
