#BlogTour #Review – Odin’s Game by Tim Hodkinson @TimHodkinson @aria_fiction #OdinsGame


Hi Everyone, 

Today on my blog, I have a review for Odin’s Game, by Tim Hodkinson. This is the first book in the Whale Road Chronicles. 

The Blurb

WxBN-xdU.jpegOrkney, 931: A young woman flees her home to secure a life for her unborn child. Eighteen years later, a witch foretells that she must lose him once more. The subject of a Viking prophecy, it is Einar’s destiny to leave Iceland and fight his father – of whom only one will survive. As the clouds of war gather, he will fight unimaginable foes, forge new friendships, and discover what it truly means to be a warrior. Not everyone will survive, but who will conquer all?

My Review

A lot of people will tell you that I love historical fiction. I must admit this one is a first for me. I’ve never read anything from the Viking era. But the blurb had me hooked. How could I not read it after that?

The story is centred around Einar’s mysterious coming into the world and the life he currently leads. He was banished from his homeland of Iceland and went to Orkney to find his family and father. I love Einar’s adventures and his search for his own identity.

This book has very well developed characters that are extremely interesting, but it has twists and turns that will leave you wondering, how the hell did that happen?

I am very much looking forward to the next instalment and adventures of Einar. Could this be a film series in the making?
