Wolfsangel free read ✓ 6 The Viking King Authun leads his men on a raid against an Anglo Saxon village Men and women are killed indiscriminately but Authun demands that no child be touched He is acting on prophecy A prophecy that tells him that the Saxons have stolen a child from the Gods If Authun in turn takes the child and raises him as an heir the child will lead his people to glory But Athun discovers not one c. You know there are times when publicity can work for a book and sometimes when it works against the enjoyment of a bookSadly for me this was one of those occasions where the publicity did me as a reader no favoursIf I had been able to sit down and just read the book with no preconceptions or advance notice of what was going to happen I would ve enjoyed it a whole lot Though I did enjoy itYou see this is one of those books that has a great plot twist about two thirds into the book or at least it would be had I not known already thanks to the Publisher s Introduction at the front of the book the blurb on the back of the book and the general comments made by other people on the Internet To avoid this for you no plot summary this time as a resultDespite this there s a lot I liked about the novel This is a cracking read a good page turner where what begins as a historical Viking novel turns into a battle between ancient Gods and has a nice touch of horror along the way Again there s that dang plot twist The book is well written and fast paced short chaptered with logical and engaging characterisation and a soon developed empathy for the lead characters It s a tale of Kings and Gods of young love defying what destiny has foretold of friendship and jealousy There s a few battles along the way which toughen up our hero from being a why can t we all get along kind of guy to an all action sword fighting throat tearing kind of hero With added issues Again there I go again with that dang plot twist On the negative side some of the plot is a little predictable if not convenient and the beginning of the novel takes a little while to get going Not too difficult to see around especially in an early novel Though this is a debut Fantasy novel the author under his real name has published before though observational non fiction than outright FantasyWhat might be a deal breaker for some is the magic system involved which involves death and particularly the death of children to implement magic It did leave me feeling a little uncomfortable although its context is well explained and logically put even if a little ickyIt s uite refreshing to read a book that dips into other pantheons from the usual There are elements here that you will recognise from Norse mythology if you know it for others it will be a pleasant surprise There s a wealth of background available for a writer to dip into and it s clearly something MD expects to use in future books in the series The ending is not too surprising though fairly self contained if you want it to beConseuently despite being a little spoiled for me as a Fantasy debut this is a fine novel and one for me that punched above its weight Conseuently I suspect it will do very well As is often the case with a good read despite the fact that I knew what was going to happen in the end I finished the book caring about the characters and wanting to know what happens next That is a good signIt further appears that I m not alone in this view though Some other authors you may have heard of such as Joe Abercrombie Stephen Deas and Graham Joyce seem to like it as well Expect to see of this one Recommended

Wolfsangel free read ✓ 6 Hild but twin baby boys Ensuring that his faithful warriors witness to what has happened die during the raid Authun takes the children and their mother home back to the witches who live on the troll wall And he places his destiny in their handsAnd so begins a stunning multi volume fantasy epic that will take a werewolf from his beginnings as the heir to a brutal viking king down through the. Re posted from I back and forthed about buying this book for the longest time When it was only newly released I dismissed it mostly because of its cover But then I read some good reviews of it But then I read some bad reviews But then I read a really good review that made it sound right up my alley and I came really close to buying it then But then the author came over all passive aggressive on twitter over a mildly poor review of his book and it turned me right off Finally my finance got sick of me picking it up and putting it back whenever we were in a bookshop and bought it for meAnd my yesno relationship with the book was destined to continue as for the whole time I was reading it I kept changing my mind over whether or not I liked itThe concept was a tick in the like box definitely A Norse king with no sons follows a prophesy to a village where he plans to pillage himself an heir Problem is the prophecy promised one baby boy and he finds twoHowever I found it really hard to get into Lachlan s writing style It was too detached for me and too often leaned on telling rather than showing At times it was like reading a newspaper article than a novel It was like a man with no personal involvement was detailing something that had happened a long time ago and the lack of warmth and immediacy really stopped me from becoming invested in the bookAnd it really stopped me from caring about the characters which as you know is where a book lives or dies for me It was frustrating because while in the narrative the characters were treated almost clinically in the dialogue they shone Lachlan s dialogue was pretty brilliant infused with genuine wit and life Which only made all those stuff outside the uote marks seem all the less so The MC Vali for example had some really funny one liners in his dialogue yet in the narrative there was hint of him being witty or being anything at all reallyIt didn t matter so much during scenes of high action and really these were then scenes I enjoyed most throughout the book Lachlan has the knack of taking complicated battles and making them easy to follow and exciting to boot But in the uieter moments where you might expect to see some character development the book was sorely lacking and action will only take you so farBy the end I found I was skimming over the text in the barest way possible I wanted to see how the book ended but I didn t really care how it ended if that makes senseThe unanimous opinoion seems to be that the book s seuel Fenrir improves massively upon Wolfsangel So I may continue on this series but then again I may not

Wolfsangel free read ✓ 6 Ages It is a journey that will see him hunt for his lost love through centuries and lives and see the endless battle between the wolf Odin and Loki the eternal trickster spill over into countless bloody conflicts from our history and over into our livesThis is the myth of the werewolf as it has never been told before and marks the beginning of an extraordinary new fantasy series from Gollanc. SynopsisAuthun a Viking king has a problem he is childless He is not just any king mind you he is Authun the Pitiless and his exploits are legendary He must ensure his people will be led by somebody at least as good as him or better In short his son Acting on the prophecy of the witch ueen Gullveig he raids an Anglo Saxon village looking for a promised infant He finds twins instead with their disfigured mother One he keeps and names Vali the other Feileg is kept by Gullveig herself to serve as her protector the boy is sent to be schooled in the animalistic magic of the berserkers and wolf people However the prince and the wolf boy are entwined in the same web of destiny over the years the twins become pawns in the complex game of magical subterfuge that is the eternal war between Odin and LokiThe tale moves forward Vali is brought up in a peaceful village leading a lifestyle which makes him value pursuits other than those expected of a son of Authun the Pitiless He is known as Vali the Swordless for one thing and to make it even worse he falls for a simple peasant girl Adisla refusing to marry a princess designated to be his wife In short Vali is a prince who doesn t want to play the role expected of him he abhors fighting and he intends to lead a normal life normal from our point of view of course Unfortunately his fate will be a bit differentThe princess s father another local ruler wants to get rid of Vali but he must do it in a very diplomatic way the wrath of Authun can be deadly He tricks the young prince Vali is thirteen at that time but we are talking about a society in which a 35 year old man is called old so I suppose you can place Vali s age somewhere around 18 into bringing him a head of a werewolf or even better capturing a live werewolf Adisla s life depends on it Vali goes werewolf hunting and uite unexpectedly even for himself returns with his twin brother Feileg who in the meantime became a real beast of a man hunting with his bare hands and teeth and living like a wild animal in the forest Soon after Vali s triumphal return Danes raid the village and despite the heroic defense led by Vali they manage to steal Adisla away Vali finds out it was not an accident they were looking specifically for the girl even knew her name What did they need a simple peasant girl forVali now an outlaw with his faithful mentor and bodyguard Braggi and Feileg who managed to fall in love with Adisla in no time set out to rescue his beloved and find out about the mysterious raid He never imagines how the journey will change himWhat I likedThis novel was a good page turner it begins as a historical Viking story but soon it turns into a battle between ancient Gods and other magical powers with a nice touch of horror along the way nice meaning original not pleasant there are plenty of entertaining but brutal action scenes Fortunately the author didn t forget to add some sense of humour to the mix making it all palatableThe characterization of main characters was excellent particularly that of Vali and later his twin wolf brother Feileg It was easy to feel empathy for these two even when their actions were brutal and bloody It added to a dark atmosphere a pervasive bleakness against which the characters had to strive it also fitted perfectly with the Viking setting There was a constant sense of an oppressive destiny bearing down on Vali but the reader is kept guessing as to exactly what that is until uite far into the story Also I admit the rivalry and suspense around the twin brothers was well played even the love triangle with Adisla didn t annoy me as much as such ugly plot tricks usually doWhat s the whole world building and precisely the depiction of the use of magic and the Norse Runes I found truly excellent Lachlan stayed close to the shamanistic nature of Norse religion and the effect was very powerful indeed I am hardly a Norse mythology and culture expert so I might be mistaken but it somehow resonated right I found the way that magic consumes and distorts those who use it particularly striking For example the witch ueen allegedly had enough power to kill her sisters without lifting her little finger and she could become a deity of a kind but she paid for it a horrible price her body seasoned to endure torture and hardship beyond belief remained forever that of a child You get nothing for nothing Even the witches have to earn their magic in all manner of unspeakable ways while the Gods do not bestride this novel as all powerful beings rather they scheme and operate from behind the scenes especially Loki my all time favouriteSpeaking of LokiI was very nicely surprised that for a character who is barely present in the novel he steals every scene he appears in And very rightly so I would love to see of the Trickster God in subseuent novels I loved his dialogues like the one I am uoting below You chose imperfection what could be perfect You saw your imperfection was perfection and therefore remedied it by imposing an imperfection on yourself thereby becoming perfect again The logic is imperfectly flawless What I didn t likePortrait of Loki via WikipediaFirstly the character of Adisla the main sueeze of two protagonists was rather sketchy I really was wondering what Vali and Feileg saw in that girl because neither her actions nor appearance didn t justify sufficiently such deep feelings and everlasting devotion She was kind and pretty she swam like a seal she was loyal but also a bit tameSecondly I found it sometimes really hard to get into Lachlan s writing style It was too detached for me and too often leaned on telling rather than showing At times it was like reading a newspaper article than a novel The lack of warmth and immediacy really stopped me from becoming invested in the book as much as the story was worthFinally the fact that the magic system presented here involved so many deaths and particularly the death of children to make things work made me a little uncomfortable It is true that the magical context was well explained and logical but stillit doesn t change the fact that these Norse witches were icky sadistic psychopaths and some exploits of Authun and his son made me nearly nauseaticFinal verdictI finished the book caring about the characters and wanting to know what happens next That is a good sign Of course the book wasn t flawless but taking into account the fact that it is a debut novel it really wasn t bad I am willing to continue this series Overall I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves Norse mythology and Viking stories with a dash of supernatural
