Description

Norway, AD 785. It began with the betrayal of a lord by a king....

King Gorm puts Jarl Harald's family to the sword but makes one fatal mistake - he fails to kill Harald's youngest son, Sigurd. His kin slain, his village seized and its people taken as slaves, Sigurd wonders if the gods have forsaken him. Hunted by powerful men, he is unsure who to trust, and yet he has a small band of loyal followers at his side.

With them - and with the help of the All-Father, Odin - he determines to make a king pay in blood for his treachery.

Using cunning and warcraft, Sigurd gathers together a fellowship of warriors - including his father's right-hand man, Olaf; Bram (whom men call Bear); Black Floki, who wields death with a blade; and the shield maiden Valgerd, who fears no man - and convinces them to follow him.

For whether Ódin is with him or not, Sigurd will have vengeance. And neither men nor gods had best stand in his way....

God of Vengeance is a must-listen for all who enjoy thrilling, action-packed fiction - from Bernard Cornwell to George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones.

Good Viking Tale

I liked this story quite a bit. God manly tale without overkill on the super warrior trope. Author doesn't go the straight obvious route. I'm not over the moon, but I liked it.

Brilliant, Amazing Entertainment

-“W0W” - One of the best novel of historical fiction I’ve listened too. Giles Kristian is as good an author as Bernard Cornwell and Ben Kane . who both specialize in historical fiction. Highly recommended. I’m starting the next book in the series!! , incredible entertainment ! I really like the warfare and fighting in the books. He describes hand to hand combat, spears , axes , sward fights, it’s just so dam good 👍 Spectacular Gore and Violence 😜

Fine adventure tale

Plenty of battle action and excellent pacing and character development. Use of marine-related metaphors and similes is first rate. Not quite up to Bernard Cornwell, but not far off. Fans of epic type historical fiction will be deep in their element.

Join the Blood Fray

Would you listen to God of Vengeance again? Why?

Giles Kristian is a fabulous story teller and Philip Stevens totally brings this to life! If you haven't had your fix of stories where words like Blood-Rage, Blood-Fray, Iron-song, and Thor's Hairy Ass make regular and frequent appearances, then this is a book for you. Blood, intrigue, action, and violence come fully loaded in this one!

What other book might you compare God of Vengeance to and why?

God of Vengence is the prequel series to the unbelievably awesome Raven Series (Blood Eye, Sons of Thunder, Odin's Wolves). Here we meet Sigurd and learn of his story. Unlike many other Viking books that seem to be based on the Viking series on TV, this was very unique. Not only do we learn about Sigurd, but also about his very unusual crew, that he recruited here and there. Floki, Bram, Olaf...they all have very cool stories.

Which scene was your favorite?

Floki whipping big ass while chained to the Weeping Stone.

If you could take any character from God of Vengeance out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Floki

Really good!

I read a lot of Bernard Cornwell and I felt that this was in some ways better than even his. Lots of action, lots of blood and characters you care about.

This is where it begins

I first learned of Sigurd when I listened to Giles Kristian's 'Blood Eye'. I immediately became infatuated with the the story and characters. at the end of the series I was saddened. That was until I found this book 'Blood of Vengeance: the Rise of Sigurd'.

This book is the beginning story of the early life of Sigurd and how he became to be the warrior and leader we know and love him to be.

The narration was full of energy and passion. Making you feel as though you were standing in the shield wall yourself with the iron smell of blood filling your nostrils.

If you like viking sagas, then you will love this one.

Fun book

Pretty OK book. Some factual inaccuracies, and the author has a thing for chopping people's hands off...like all the time hehe. But he got most name places right though.

Being from Norway myself, some of the narrator's pronounciations were, well, weird sounding.

But all in all enjoyable.

not bad, but could be better

Not sure how much was the reader and how much is the writer but it took me some time to get into the story. Giles is no Bernard Cornwall yet... but the general story is good and hopefully his writing improves with each book.

The. Best. Audio book.

Best audio book I've ever listened to. Kristian delivers an engaging story, which is well paced and satisfying for anyone looking for a great viking saga. Fantastic voice performance by Stevens. His character voices are completely commited and he is a true joy to listen to. Could not recommend any more highly. I bought the next book immediately after finishing.

Proably a fine "yarn" but....

I'm sure this is a fine "adventure yarn" and I might someday return to it... but ... too many "Scandinavian / Norse" words that are impossible to understand in an audible version. Probably works fine in print but I simply cannot follow audibly...
