Publisher's Summary

Set in a Norse-inspired world and packed with myth, magic, and vengeance, this epic saga follows a band of warriors as they face the wrath of ancient gods and change the shape of the world.

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 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.

Savage and enthralling.

The second novel of the trilogy has picked up where it left off in terms of quality and thrills. I can't get enough of this. By far the fastest I ever finished an Audible book.

Just wow

Intricately written and simply impossible to turn off/put down. The only complaint is the next in the series is not available immediately! This series has worked its way to my list of top favourites.

Awesome!

Completely obsessed with this trilogy. Can’t wait until the third book! Been trying to convince others in my family to listen so I can talk about it with someone.

Narration 10/10

Fantastic second book in a series, I thought the narrator did an amazing job and really helped add to the story. I struggled with the beginning of the book but once I switched to audible I flew through it.
