The Hunger of the Gods continues John Gwynne's acclaimed Norse-inspired epic fantasy series, packed with myth, magic and bloody vengeance

THE DEAD GODS ARE RISING . . .

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.

Praise for The Bloodsworn series:

'A masterfully crafted, brutally compelling Norse-inspired epic' Anthony Ryan

'Visceral, heart-breaking and unputdownable' Jay Kristoff

'A satisfying and riveting read. The well-realised characters move against a backdrop of a world stunning in its immensity' Robin Hobb

'A masterclass in storytelling . . . epic, gritty fantasy with an uncompromising amount of heart' FanFiAddict

'Quintessential Gwynne honed to perfection . . . The Shadow of the Gods is absolutely stunning, one hell of an epic series opener and a spectacular dose of Viking-flavoured fantasy' The Tattooed Book Geek

'Reminds me of all that I love in the fantasy genre. The Shadow of the Gods is an action-packed cinematic read' Fantasy Hive

MEDIA REVIEWS

An exciting, rich, vibrant story, full of heart-pounding action and colourful characters - FanFiAddict

The Bloodsworn has impressed the hell out of me through two volumes. Like the first instalment, The Hunger of the Gods ended bombastically with a great emotional punch that has me slavering for the finale. Highly recommended - SFFWorld

Tightly paced and with invigorating action throughout, The Hunger of the Gods is the epic payoff to the foundation Gwynne meticulously laid down in The Shadow of the Gods and a thrilling setup for the series conclusion - Polygon

A stellar entry in a series that is worthy of the saga-song title - Fantasy Book Critic

The Shadow of the Gods was a great book; The Hunger of the Gods surpasses it . . . I loved every word - The Eloquent Page

“I keep getting lost”

Rather confusing book to read, I am constantly losing the plot and getting confused between characters. A lot of the characters have very similar names which I think adds to the confusion
