Now I am not a 'children of the Raj' reader in my daily life but once opening this book it is impossible to leave it. The author keeps amazing me with the beauty of the language practically in each sentence and the story is fascinating, I must admit.

Song of the Vikings: Snorri and the Making of Norse Myths In Song of the Vikings, award-winning author Nancy Marie Brown brings us the life of Snorri Sturluson, the thirteenth-century Icelandic chieftain who created Norse mythology. “For readers who’ve long sensed that older winds blow through the works of their beloved Tolkien, Song of the Vikings is a fitting refresher on Norse mythology. Without stripping these dark tales of their magic, Nancy Marie Brown shows how mere humans shape myths that resonate for centuries – and how one brilliant scoundrel became, for all time, the ‘Homer of the North.’”--Jeff Sypeck, author of Becoming Charlemagne
