    Finished Snorri can turn out a nice line or twothe silence spread like blood on a stoneHis mouth moved and old words snuck back into the world on a whispersharp noises of metal on metal skipping across the sea like flat stones on a lakeOne thing I hadn't properly understood until this third book when I uizzed the author is uite how tightly the bones of the story are bound to historical reference or at least saga reference Even lines of dialogue are lifted from the thirteenth century accounts of the author's namesake Snorri Sturluson At one point an archer's bow breaks and he says something like that was the sound of Norway breaking in your hands which comes from the historical sources Probably the guy said bugger and Sturluson dressed it up two centuries laterAs with the previous book this volume shouldi be read by someone with a much better memory than meorii be read immediately after the previous volumesor iii should have a catch up sectionI feel the fault is with me but uite a lot of the time I was a bit confused as to who X was and what his relation to Y was The roll call is uite largeOne big strength of the tale is the skill with which the landscape season and atmosphere are portrayed If you've ever wondered what it would be like to be cold wet and miserable in a Norwegian forest now you knowThere are also plenty of battle scenes Axes are swung arrows shot blood spilled It's entertaining stuffThe magic content has been ramping up over the trilogy and reaches a peak in the final volume There are blue blooded trolls from the get go and Audun and Ulfar continue their journey toward their destinyTrue to the book's name the gods feature heavily and things come to be Ragnarokish head on the book's final battlefieldWith so many characters so much action and a cinematic tendency to swap point of view character in chapter the books stand on plot action and atmosphere than on character There's plenty of entertaining Norse dialogue but it's the banter of men at war and I never found myself particularly attached to any given characterAll in all it's a fitting conclusion to the trilogy and a refreshing dose of Norse adventure Join my 3 emails a year newsletter #prizes

    Firstly some of the trials tribulations of getting hold of this Been “on hold” “missing” “lost” “recovered” “loaned out to two other people first after recovered but hey Ive been On hold since October No1 in the ueue” This better be good Oh dear I think the Old Gods were trying to tell me something with all the delaysThe first few chapters which eventually turns into the 50% mark you are assaulted by an assortment of characters some of which I’m sure are appearing for the first time as I surely don’t recognise all of them worse still all they seem to do is be walking North OR walking South OR sitting in their long halls Nothing really happens they have no real character either its all very dreary I find myself just looking at words on a page willing this slog to end whats happened? Who kidnapped Snorri Kristjansson what have you done with him?I did really enjoy the first 2 books in the trilogy 1 star never been so bored with a book

    Originally posted at so we are brought to the third story in the awesome The Vahalla Saga Snorri Kristjansson managed to completely win me over with his debut Swords of Good Men which was also my first Jo Fletcher title I reviewed it must have been destiny and last year with the seuel Blood will Follow he managed to astound me once again The seuel was a bit different in tone but even amazing with what Snorri Kristjansson introduced that mythical part Wow Though the hints were obscure if you know some of the Norse pantheon lore you could make out the direction of the story in the big lines Snorri Kristjansson kept enough material behind to keep you guessing and wondering And now everything will be revealed in Path of Gods Path of Gods picks up in the best most amazing and awesome way I am a big fan of the Norse mythology and not only because Marvel The Avengers different pantheons have always intrigued me And so the prologue of Path of Gods got me really excited for the latter of the book because BAM Yes a deity reveal This only confirmed what I was thinking Anyway the story continues the journey of Ulfar Thormodsson and Audun Arngrimsson they have already been through a lot from their encounter in Stenvik and the supernatural dealings in the second book Now they have regrouped and have one specific goal in mind to make sure that the lands they live in stays in the hands of the right people who still believe in their gods King Olav Tryggvasson started a crusade in Swords of Good Men a crusade to force the Christian believe on the people of Norway and Sweden If you didn't comply on the first go you would be persuaded in a nasty way and if you still didn't commit to this new believe you would be killed King Olav has marched his way from Stenvik all the way to Trondheim convincing people for his White Christ cause But it comes at a price as King Olav now established in Trondheim has a difficult task of keeping everyone happy so far that people are planning against King Olav So now King Olav is facing problems within his own council as well as from the south Now this might sound like simple story but it is far from it As in both the case of Ulfar and Audun and King Olav there are plans counter plans and back stabbing Ulfar Audun and the people of Stenvik have to make new alliances put their trust in untrustworthy people to gain a force strong enough to even dare to face There is for the reader a cherry on top of it all the part where Snorri Kristjansson finally drops the mythical bomb on us Yes there are some meddlesome characters of the Norse Pantheon Beware spoiler Loki and Thor and Odin make the most important introductions here The way that Snorri Kristjansson introduced them into the story was just brilliant stuff with a hint here and there and then you slowly put the pieces together for a bigger picture As the story picks up and speed there was a big reveal on page 280 which put the biggest smile on my face that I had for a long time that scene just i don't know what to say The ending left me just as speechless I can only say that this is the type of book and series that will make an authors career skyrocketJust as with the other books in the series Snorri Kristjansson writes solid I mentioned that in the first book some scenes were a bit chaotic and in the seuel and again in this book Snorri Kristjansson has corrected this error and produced a very clear and addictive read that will have you hooked from the first prologue What was for me noticeable is Snorri Kristjansson's writing style it's for me in the lines of you either like my stories or you don't he writes with a confidence that it is his story and you have to accept it somethings are bold but they work very well As for the characters of the Path of Gods the focus has always been on Ulfar and Audun from their first introduction in Swords of Good Men where Ulfar arrived in the town of Stenvik and the blacksmith with a story Audun who eventually wound up figthing against Viking raiders and having to rely on each other They have gone through a lot and this is clearly noticeable in the growth that Snorri Kristjansson shows in their characters If you compare Ulfar from the first book a rookie to what he has finally become in Path of Gods it's amazing He has gone through a tremendous transformation Now you might become hesitant when I say tremendous transformation but don't the transformation that Ulfar goes through is all on the screen You see how he is changed and it is not erratic it's natural by events that he encounters and it comes to show that you just can't mess with a god The same counts for Audun though he already has a background to start with the scenes where you see him are just as with Ulfar he was destined I so want to scream what happens to them but I won't It is costing me discipline though I think you will be amazed with what Snorri Kristjansson does to these two character utterly amazed As for King Olav another important character in the series I started to like him like him in failing his goals From the start King Olav has been a bastard and his ways of convincing' people Well it wasn't convincing too be honest I really like to see him fail in his uest and how he has to flee and regroup which also didn't really work out Olav is one of the bad guys in the story and I am always a big fan when you see the antagonist story It gives much flavor in seeing the actions and reaction the fact that Snorri Kristjansson devotes from the start a lot of time on Olav and his cause only pays off in the long run All in all Path of Gods is the finisher the series deserved in every aspect Snorri Kristjansson improved his story telling and writing The book features a lot of diversity when it comes to what happens from action packed scenes down to a easy steady pace when fronts had to regroup to some boisterous partying in between people and of course the revealing of the meddling affairs of a certain god and how the others react When I first started reading Swords of Good Men I had never had dared to think in my wildest imagination that the story would go into this direction but along the way Snorri Kristjansson kept on shaping and changing the story bit by bit carving a path in the good direction It might be a bold statement but The Valhalla Saga with Swords of Good Men Blood Will Follow and Path of Gods have definitely marked Snorri Kristjansson as an author to watch Make sure you are at the front to see with what he will come up with next I sure will be

    I think this one was the best of the series I read it in a day it felt so light Just like it should Many historical books put in useless facts that drags down the book Here he balanced it well I felt like I was there and then he mixed it with mythology and made it believableAudun and Ulfar are back together They are still immortal and they know that things are happening A big showdown is comingFirst we have King Olav arghh he made me so mad So raping women who do not believe in Christ is ok You are going down Olav you and your religion I kept waiting for ships to sailif you catch my meaning whistlesBut then we have the dark evil parts Loki has a willing pawn who wants to start Ragnarrök And that is not really ok There is a lot of darkness going on there You are going down Loki As you can see our two heroes who are not really heroes just men have their job cut out for them Armies are marching Trolls are coming Loki is laughing and the Gods are watchingI used to read a lot of his fic set around this time but ever since I started reading in English not so much A shame really it's always interesting It's fun and this book is a mix of fiction and mythology A great mix that works gy A great mix that works

    A perfect ending to the Valhalla sagaIf you are still reading by book three of a trilogy the chances are you are going to like the ending and be forgiving of any let downs or untidiness in the completion of the story There is nothing at all reuiring that understanding the book is beautifully written with lots of thought provoking side plot twists and builds to it's inevitable ending in a manner that surprised me even with only a few pages to go I am sad to see the back of these books and will re read them in a year or so as a complete run and hope MrKristjansson will provide many tales of this calibre

    I took uite a large break between reading the second book and starting the third That might have been part of my problem I liked some parts just fine I just didn’t really love any of it It built up all this anticipation for this big fight between a few of the main characters and then just ended I really would have enjoyed being a witness to that fight It made it uite anticlimactic for me

    A good ending to the saga But not as good as the Sigurd and Raven series by Giles Kristian

  8. Rebecca Rebecca says:

    Absolutely bloody brilliant Great characters superb action amazing battles and sparkling dialogue Combined with a cleverly and well crafted plot that is full of surprises and a good dash of humour A fine and fitting end for all involved some remarkable plot twists that neatly bring the characters and storyline full circle with great storytelling This final book was packed full of Norse mythical references and I was especially impressed with the introduction of a horror element to the magic used It didn't revert to stereotype and still maintained a strong Nordic influence and style to its approach and indeed how the heroes and companions fought against this new and increasing threatOverall this trilogy is a masterful retelling of the raise of King Olaf and his blood coated mission to make the Danes Christian and Snorri has cleverly captured the religious conflict of the time and presented it in a manner that really does remind the reader why the Vikings held firm to their belief in the Aesir and the Old Ways for no great heroes have ever truly emerged from Christian trials and adventures only in the ways of the North are true heroes forged their tales becoming legend

    c2015 FWFTB Sweden Forkbeard faith family Ragnarok OK So this was one of those books where for most of the book I had absolutely no idea what was going on No 'what has gone before and the author does not give a continental He throws you in to the story with no care whatsoever and its a wild ride The trouble is that I didn't even care The story is riveting and the battlefight seuences sparsely described but breathtaking I finally understood everything when I read the last two pages and then I wanted to read the whole trilogy again this time knowing what the hell was going on Loved it and definitely recommend to the normal crew Loki looked at him and laughed Then the God of Mischief spat in his face
