The Swords of Good Men by Snorri Kristjansson

Bellevue Store

Join us on the third Thursday of the month at 5:30pm for a discussion of the best in science fiction and fantasy.
Snori-1
A raucous and gripping fantasy adventure set in Viking Norway, the first volume in Snorri Kristjansson’s Vhlhalla Saga weaves together Norse mythology, history, and fantasy for an adventure that offers not only a good dose of bloody Viking feuding, but intrigue and romance. At the final stop on his travels, all weary Viking Ulfar Thormodsson wants to do is rest. But with the town’s own conflicts and secrets rising to the surface as two factions of invaders approach from opposite sides, it becomes clear that—in the midst of a battle between the old gods and the new—there’s no escaping.
