Firstly to anyone who actually is a frequent reader or visitor to this blog I can't APOLOGISE enough for being absent from this little haven of viking madness for 2 whole months! Sadly real life just got pretty darn hectic and left me with little time or energy to put anything new up PLUS I've continued to be a very bad writer and not write a single extra word to Soul Chaser *hangs head in shame*. I think I need a big kick up the ass and possibly another six week holiday without any family matters distracting me.
Anyway, I have returned hopefully for the frequent future back to my little piece of the world wide web. And I have some possibly exciting yet some readers may curse me as black as Hel's body for this, in that my partner got me the newest cheap Kindle e-reader as an anniversary present and I am loving it! Not only is it just so easy to read from and still enables you to get lost in a good book (and yes I will still be reading proper books as they are now known as all the best viking history books have yet to appear as an e-book (although The Hammer and the Cross is available as an e-book so if you have a Kindle and LOVE vikings and history I can't recommend it enough - go to the tabs by the left hand side to find the title and it will take you to my review). But the other special thing is it's introduced me to a whole host of extra viking historical and norse fantasy books that aren't available in traditional form but the one I'm reading at the moment is pretty impressive and although some haven't had reviews yet I'm hoping I haven't picked any bad eggs but I will review them like proper books as I finish each one so you will learn as I do.
So here is my new Kindle Viking Historical and Norse Fantasy Fiction reading/to-read list - why not download one and share the experience with me:
I am currently reading the top book 'Loki' and it is turning out to be a fantastic read with great depth to the characters and a riveting blend of myth into the plot line. Of course I'll put a review up as soon as I can when I've finished it. Which will be pretty soon as I'm 80% of the way through!
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish any and all readers a Happy Halloween - may you not get spooked in the night as Odin begins his wild hunt of all creatures that lurk in the dark. So if you hear a screaming wail outside under the moon, don't worry it's just Odin and his Valkyries whizzing by hehehe.
As I'm unforunately away in Wales again for my study week I won't get to participate in any halloween fun and games like normal but here's something I did earlier, like last halloween, to get you in the halloween spirit.
