• "Oden has done a marvellous job . . . a true triumph."

  • "A magnificent mytho-historical saga, blending the history of 11th century Europe with Norse and Celtic mythology. A dark, grim and unrelentingly bloody tale of the last Orc and his quest for vengeance. Highly recommended."

    JOHN GWYNNE, bestselling author of The Faithful and the Fallen
  • "Set in a vividly-imagined world where history and myth blur, Scott Oden’s gripping and bloody tale of monsters and men carves out a fantastic new legend for this modern age."

    JAMES WILDE, bestselling author of the Hereward series
  • "Everything that a Grimdark novel should be, sharp witted, dark and dangerous. Highly recommended for anyone who loves action, good characters and, you know, an amazing story. I loved it!"

    JAMES A. MOORE, author of the Seven Forges series and The Last Sacrifice
  • "Swirling together Norse mythology with a Tolkien-esque writing style (there are even songs!) . . . if you like your fantasies with a serrated edge, this tale will be right up your alley."
