While browsing for a new haul of books on Barnes and Noble, I came across the listing for The Hunger of the Gods by John Gwynne which was recommended under April's Picks.
After giving it a lookover, I must say, it sounds absolutely riveting. This book is set in a Norse-inspired world, packed with magic, myths, and vengeance. The saga follows a group of warriors that go on to face ancient gods and attempt to change the shape of the world. There's a few great reviews and it sounds like a very satisfying and riveting read. Just what I'm looking for in a new read!
As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for The Hunger of the Gods is:
"Lik-Rifa, the dragon god of legend, has been freed from her eternal prison. Now she plots a new age of blood and conquest.
As Orka continues the hunt for her missing son, the Bloodsworn sweep south in a desperate race to save one of their own–and Varg takes the first steps on the path of vengeance.
Elvar has sworn to fulfil her blood oath and rescue a prisoner from the clutches of Lik-Rifa and her dragonborn followers, but first she must persuade the Battle-Grim to follow her.
Yet even the might of the Bloodsworn and Battle-Grim cannot stand alone against a dragon god.
Their hope lies within the mad writings of a chained god. A book of forbidden magic with the power to raise the wolf god Ulfrir from the dead . . .and bring about a battle that will shake the foundations of the earth."
