It's easy to forget where each POV character is going because everyone was constantly traveling to a place before moving on to travel again. I was skeptical about Elvar in book 1, I couldn’t decide whether she was good or evil, now I’ve accepted that there’s no black and white here, she’s a selfish, power and fame obsessed woman and I love that, she knows what she wants and she goes for it, she did some awesome things in this book. However, I also have to admit that The Hunger of the Gods felt like it's filled with the infamous middle book syndrome in several sections.

This was mostly enjoyable and does a lot of what I love in Gwynnes writing which is balancing multiple POVs well, creating compelling characters and kickass combat. I’m also a Viking re-enactor and enjoy nothing more than standing in the shield wall with my three sons, who are as passionate about swords and axes as I am (when I’m not stuck in my coat of mail; it’s harder than it looks).

That difficultly of keeping track of them led to me struggling to emotionally connect to the characters. However, Gwynne has added two new POV characters into The Hunger of the Gods, and I think they added the extra depth that the series needed.It was one of the things I struggled with in the first book, the new terms and keeping track of everyone. My man Vard has the best character growth of any one in the books and I am loving his journey and seeing him become a true warrior is thrilling!

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. But as we all know already, none of our top favorite authors can keep a 5/5 stars track record lasting forever. Hunger of the Gods was my most anticipated book of the year, after absolutely loving Shadow of the Gods last year. I loved the banter between Varg, Rokia and Svik, it made me smile and brought humor to a difficult world.If you are familiar with Norse mythology, I doubt it will be difficult for you to predict where the story will go or end up since The Shadow of the Gods. It may not be Abercrombie's level yet—to be fair, no one can do what Abercrombie did with Glokta—but I am pleased to see Gwynne trying out new things and making it work. He is married with four children and lives in Eastbourne, where he is part of a Viking reenactment group.
