This is a great fantasy novel that combines alternative history and a little norse mythology. This is a epic novel that asks the question what is the Vikings invaded England and norse myths won over Christianity? That is the basis of this novel. We see this thru the eyes of Shef who rises from Slave to King when he gets visions on how to make weapons from Odin, chief of the norse gods..This novel has lavish historical detail on how people live in the Dark Ages and brutal battle scenes.
