A Gathering of Ravens: A Novel 02, Oct

5/5

A GATHERING OF RAVENS is a novel set in the Bernard Cornwell-esque world of Vikings, Christians, and the conflict between their faiths. The big difference here is the supernatural is explicitly real in Scott Oden's world where all of Norse Mythology is true but so is Celtic and Christian. The White Christ is conquering the world and his symbol repels the magic of the Old Gods even as they fight with their own followers over mass conversions. It is a violent, dark, cynical, and thoroughly fascinating novel I recommend to all fans of true grimdark.
