Description

I’m still not quite sure how it was possible for Gwynne to add even more depth, or build on to his already fantastic realm of Vigrid, and amazing group of characters… but he did. Elvar was the main character that took me longer than the other characters to feel invested in The Shadow of the Gods. Although his chapters were relatively less intense for the majority of the book, I think Gwynne has successfully nailed the balance of see-saw in the calm and the intense moments in Varg's POV chapters. Orka is still hunting for Breca, and she is using every lead, person, spell, and scrap of information she can find to help her.

Also, following the epic bloodbath in the conclusion of Elvar's story in The Shadow of the Gods, the calamity and destruction displayed in the last few chapters of Elvar's story in this book were Gwynne's epic and thrilling battle scenes at their best.

Overall it was good but has some noticeable flaws and I still want to see this story to its conclusion. My favorite up to this point is The Faithful and the Fallen series which still remains my favorite quartet of all times. 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. Didn't think I would enjoy this series as much as his previous works as am not a big fan of Norse mythology but was hooked from the first page.

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. I am happy to say that The Hunger of the Gods is close in quality to TFATF and it is is the first book to get 5 stars from me in 2022 after reading almost 60 books! I'm not reviewing much anymore but given the fact that I wrote a not-so-positive review of book 1, this book totally deserves the praise! The three characters are swept up in this larger plot in different ways, which just makes the story richer.John Gwynne has done a fantastic job in giving a distinct personality and much depth to each character, even the secondary characters that you cannot help but relate with them. We got even more in depth worldbuilding, more time with the characters I loved in SotG, the mythology of the first book is expanded. If you are familiar with Norse mythology, I doubt it will be difficult for you to predict where the story will go or end up since The Shadow of the Gods. I was often lost by the sea of names, I did check the glossary, yes but I wasn't able to truly distinguish their personalities except for very few, the rest were painted by the same shade. Sure, I empathized with Orka for example and desperately wanted her to find Breca but I did not feel any connection nor link with the characters.
