March 2014 Readings
Are you all enjoying In the Shadow of the Gods? I do hope you are. Please let me know what you think (unless you fancy doing a spot of trolling…)
Anyway, this month I read the following books. Do have a look at them.
1) Swords of Good Men by Snorri Kristjansson. A book set at the turn of the Millennium with some fantasy elements. Very good.
2) Viking Gold by V. Campbell. This is a book aimed at young adults but can be read by adults too. A gripping adventure set around the time of the Norse discovery of America.
3) Viking: Odinn’s Child by Tim Severin. A fantastic book. If you are enjoying Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon series then you will like these. I can also recommend his book on the Brendan Voyage if you enjoyed Viking Gold (which I’m sure you will!)
4) Jack of Spies by David Downing. Taking a break from the list to see how other spy books are written. This is set just before the First World War in 1913 and gives an insight into life in China, the USA, Britain and Ireland. Very interesting.
Sorry for the lack of Sharpe but Sharpe’s Enemy has not yet returned to the Library. No wonder he’s not good friends with Mr Sharpe…
