About the Author
John Gwynne studied and lectured at Brighton University. He's played double bass in a rock 'n' roll band and traveled the USA and Canada. He is married with four children and lives in Eastbourne, where he is part of a Viking reenactment group. When not writing, he can often be found standing in a shield wall with his three sons about him. His dogs think he is their slave.
Reviews
"A satisfying and riveting read. The well-realized characters move against a backdrop of a world stunning in its immensity. It's everything I've come to expect from a John Gwynne book."--Robin Hobb
"The world is wonderfully rendered with attention paid to what makes the Norse sagas entertaining....The many layers provide a lavish feast for any reader. A great companion to Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology."--Booklist (starred review)
"A masterfully crafted, brutally compelling Norse-inspired epic."--Anthony Ryan
"Gwynne, a Viking reenactor, puts in the work, with fine historical details that make the story come to life. Fans of the era will be delighted with the accuracy. This is a duly exciting start to the series."--Publishers Weekly
"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
"There is not a dull chapter in this fantasy epic. As tension mounts with each passing page, Gwynne delivers exhilarating fights and gruesome battles with such vivid prose the choreography jumps off the page."--Vulture (Best of the Year)
