Wishful Wednesday, 19 October

The meme is hosted by Brooke from Brooke Bluestocking Guide.



 Welcome to Wishful Wednesday! 
As one of my Internet friends is doing a course on Norse culture and laguage (waving to the Red Witch) my wish today is kind of inspired by some entries o her blog. 

In other words would like to read Wolfsangel by M.D. Lachlan.


Here you have the blurb (from Amazon.com.):

Sorcery and savagery fuel this rousing historical fantasy, the first volume in a planned multivolume epic. Acting on the witch Gullveig’s prophecy, Viking raiders kidnap two infant brothers from a village. Wily and clever Vali is groomed to be Viking king Authun’s heir, while Feileg is raised ferally as Gullveig’s werewolf protector as she schemes against the god Odin. The boys enjoy adventures peculiar to their different upbringings until their mutual affection for farmer’s daughter Adisla draws them together as comrades in arms as well as rivals in love. Lachlan (a pseudonym for Mark Barrowcliffe) keeps supernatural inflections to a minimum, opting instead for a colorful and credible evocation of the Norse world as one where the paths of gods and men frequently cross. Vivid in its rendering of the primitive historical past, this entertaining adventure will have readers eagerly anticipating the next book in the series.


 (Actually you don’t have to anticipate anything as the next part is available as well ;))

What are your wishes this week? Have you read the book featured by me? Would you like to read it? I would like to know your thoughts!

  1. I'm not big on historical fiction of any kind. I do like to read reviews of it because I can get a sense of the plot and theme without reading the entire book that likely wouldn't hold my interest. So I look forward to your review real soon. 🙂 I wish to have some available time to read Night Circus.

    If you are into the Norse gods at the moment, I wonder, have you read the trilogy by Kevin Hearne? Real funny urban fantasy I guess.

  13. Anachronist says:

    No Aurian, I haven't. I will keep it in my memory (so written down) though, thanks!
