I’m still not quite sure how it was possible for Gwynne to add even more depth, or build on to his already fantastic realm of Vigrid, and amazing group of characters… but he did. The Gods show up and a fierce battle ensues, leaving you in a state of shock and awe, all the while, wanting more.

It also made us focus on the plot more and what's happening with the characters rather than the characters themselves (since the focus was targeted towards what happened after the cliffhanger).Another plus for this book was that we saw the conflict from two perspectives, the "good" and the "bad" guys that line blurred and it wasn't so clear who are the good people (well except Varg and Orka of course). I was hesitant to go into this just because it is a chunky book and I did not remember everything in book one so it was a challenge.

I was delighted by the beginning of the book, which included a character list and a summary of book 1. If you are familiar with Norse mythology, I doubt it will be difficult for you to predict where the story will go or end up since The Shadow of the Gods. 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.

Before I start reviewing this book, I have to mention that this book includes a detailed “story so far” section, a glossary and a character list! If more made that choice, in their head and hearts, to live a peaceful life with those they love and value, and just allow others to do the same. Although I internally sighed whenever his chapter came up, I appreciated those more in the last part of the book given his unique perspective and role in the events. Things were happening and we had several well-executed battle scenes that kept me on the edge of my seat. I do not want to give too much away here, but these creatures infect your tongue and slowly rot the body and the mind until you become a shell of yourself and a slave to their will.

Even the new POVs were enjoyable to follow and helped add higher stakes and depth to the world of Vigrið! I love Orka so much, she is brave, strong, resilient, loyal, fierce and she will do anything for those she cares about. This book is the most pulse pounding, nail-biting, action-packed piece of literature I think I have ever read! Awesome to be reunited with The Bloodsworn and the rest of the cast in another instalment of horror, torment, loss, and most importantly, friendship.En este punto ya he comprobado que Gwynne tiene la costumbre de darme de lo mejorcito en batallas que he leído.

On the other hand, some chapters could've been removed especially in the first half since they didn't add much to the story, or at least should've been summed up and combined with another chapter. Other than the first three main POV characters of The Shadow of the Gods and one new POV or two supporting characters, I won’t mention any other characters’ names. Very much enjoyed it - his books are well written with just the right amount of character progression and world building. Though some characters, like Svik and Einar, took more of a supporting role/backseat in this installment. They all have strong motivations, and this book helps us to understand intellectually what their goals and needs are.John Gwynne has done a fantastic job in giving a distinct personality and much depth to each character, even the secondary characters that you cannot help but relate with them.
