Waiting on Wednesday
This week, on Waiting on Wednesday meme where we feature some of the most anticipated SFF Titles releasing later this year, we bring you the much-awaited ( and super hyped but rightly so!) The Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne, book one in this new series called the BloodSworn Saga. A new world inspired by the Vikings, this promises so much action and excitement in vintage John Gwynne style. I cannot wait to dive into this one, lucky to have snared the ARC :)
Set in a brand-new, Norse-inspired world, and packed with myth, magic and bloody vengeance, The Shadow of the Gods begins an epic new fantasy saga from bestselling author John Gwynne.
After the gods warred and drove themselves to extinction, the cataclysm of their fall shattered the land of Vigrið.
Now a new world is rising, where power-hungry jarls feud and monsters stalk the woods and mountains. A world where the bones of the dead gods still hold great power for those brave - or desperate - enough to seek them out.
Now, as whispers of war echo across the mountains and fjords, fate follows in the footsteps of three people: a huntress on a dangerous quest, a noblewoman who has rejected privilege in pursuit of battle fame, and a thrall who seeks vengeance among the famed mercenaries known as the Bloodsworn.
All three will shape the fate of the world as it once more falls under the shadow of the gods . . .
Expected Release - May 6th, Orbit (US)
