Series: Bloodsworn
Packed with myth, magic, and bloody vengeance, John Gwynne's masterfully crafted, brutally compelling, Norse-inspired epic (Anthony Ryan) continues in The Hunger of the Gods.

THE DEAD GODS ARE RISING.

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 only 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.

Fans of the era will be delighted with the accuracy. This is a duly exciting start to the series. --Publishers Weekly on The Shadow of the Gods Quintessential Gwynne, honed to perfection . . .

A great companion to Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology. --Booklist (starred review) on The Shadow of the Gods There is not a dull chapter in this fantasy epic.
