Odin's Wolves (Novel)

Odin's Wolves by Giles Kristian is the third novel in the Raven series. Raven is the main hero of the story and it's really his Saga as he goes on a leisurely cruise (goes a Viking) in the Dark Ages with his oath sworn brothers. After reading the first two I was more than happy to find this in a local secondhand bookshop and out of all three novels I enjoyed this one the most.
It does not contain the epic historical pitched battle warfare of a Bernard Cornwell Novel but it has plenty of action and fights as the characters travel into the Mediterranean on the way to Miklagard (Constantinople). They even stop in at Rome and take in the touristy things to see there. It's good fun for a wargamer like me who is really liking Dark Ages themes at the moment. It just helps with the immersion experience.
Hopefully the Raven saga continues and all his injuries heal in time for the follow up.
I give it 4 axes smashed in your face out of 5.

Cheers from Brendon
