About this deal

And just for fun, I predict the third book of the trilogy will be titled The Battle of the Gods or The War of the Gods.

It is worth noting that the three main POV characters in The Shadow of the Gods didn’t have an intersecting storyline or chapters until literally the last chapter of the book. For new readers enjoy your first time experiencing Gwynne as he is a magnificent storyteller of gritty and grim fantasy that is full of heart. 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.It’s incredibly touching because, on the way to fulfilling her vengeance, she takes time to help others in need when she does not have to. The only thing I didn't like was that he overdid the amount and types of 'ghouls and ghastly things' that were brought together by the Dragon God . Hunger of the Gods was my most anticipated book of the year, after absolutely loving Shadow of the Gods last year.

Consequently, the magic that was only somewhat present in The Shadow of the Gods is considerably ramped up in this entry. I love this book more than words can say and I absolutely love the world in which the Bloodsworn live and thrive. The plot progression was slow, the book felt like a preparation to the final book, almost everything that happened here felt like a prelude to what will happen in the next and final book in the series. Another point I have to mention is that it's most likely I became a heartless person recently but I could not connect with the characters, "feel" with them.First, and most importantly, it was actually gripping and I couldn't put the book down, especially in the last 30%. Indescriptible lo que crea este autor desde personajes, momentos y escenas que hay que leerlo para entender lo difícil que es para mi explicar el nivel de detalle y de precisión de John Gwynne. I loved all the characters, the battles, and the Norse-mythology world plus creatures, but having these traveling sections repeated until the end of the novel did get tiresome at times. They all have strong motivations, and this book helps us to understand intellectually what their goals and needs are. So here we are again, another year and another book by John Gwynne, one of my top favorite authors of all time.

If more made that choice, in their head and hearts, to live a peaceful life with those they love and value, and just allow others to do the same.Many of the characters have revenge quests that should feel emotionally charged, and yet the book prioritized the action of the plot over those emotions. I was interested in reading this book because I wanted to learn what's going to happen to the children. She has more than earned her moniker of Orka Skullsplitter, which is one of the cooler names in fantasy I have to admit. Then there’s Gudvarr who is a morally ambiguous character, he leans more towards villainy than goodness, the only person he loves apart from himself is his aunt, I bet he can screw her over if his life is on the line.

Biorr’s POV was enlightening, it tells the readers what’s happening where he is, I actually feel bad for him, he can’t decide whether he is on the right side, he has to make a decision soon. Witnessing how much she has developed since her first chapter in The Shadow of the Gods was undeniably satisfying to me. I love Orka so much, she is brave, strong, resilient, loyal, fierce and she will do anything for those she cares about.They go above and beyond what their body is capable of and use their strengths to fight off fears as they embark on their voyage. As tension mounts with each passing page, Gwynne delivers exhilarating fights and gruesome battles with such vivid prose the choreography jumps off the page. One of the many privileges of being John Gwynne's son is getting access to the first draft of his works. Pacing: I felt that the pacing of this book is little faster than TSOTG but I wouldn't say its breakneck.
