9781782063322: Swords of Good Men: The Valhalla Saga Book I

Swords of Good Men, Snorri Kristjansson’s debut novel, incorporates the myths that fascinated him as a child with his passion for epic fantasy.

To weary Viking Ulfar Thormodsson, the town of Stenvik is the penultimate stop on the return leg of a long and perilous journey. It has been particularly challenging for Thormodsson, who has been charged with protecting the life of his high-born cousin. Having traveled the oceans of the world for two years, all he wants is to go home. But Stenvik awaits.

The small coastal town is home to a colorful array of individuals, from the beautiful and tragic Lilia, who captures Thormodsson’s rough heart, to solitary blacksmith Audun Arngrimsson, whose past hides many dark secrets. The travel-worn Vikings also discover that King Olav is marching on Stenvik from the east, determined to bring the White Christ to the masses at the point of his sword—even as a host of bloodthirsty raiders led by a mysterious woman sails from the north.

Meanwhile, there is trouble brewing between two of the town’s competing factions, a conflict that threatens to sweep all of them, natives and visitors alike, into the jaws of war. Thormodsson and his companions soon learn that in this conflict between the old gods and the new, there are enemies everywhere—outside the walls of Stenvik as well as within.

About the Author:

Snorri Kristjansson is an Icelander, a writer and a teacher, with a background in acting, music and stand-up comedy. He lives in South London with his fiance. Swords of Good Men is his first novel.

Review:

"[It] promises to be a powerful epic fantasy series. . . . Kristjansson takes the reader along at a breakneck speed, and it doesn’t let up until the final very end. And the ending, though satisfying, leaves the door open for yet more mayhem. I gladly recommend this book."—Historical Novel Society

"I'm impressed!... Overall, Swords of Good Men is an excellent foray into historical Scandinavian fiction . . . and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in Vikings, ancient battles, or religious conflicts. I definitely will look forward to later installments in The Valhalla Saga to continue the story."—Fanboy Comics

"Swords of Good Men will be a book to watch if that's your genre of choice, as will the series."
