Becky Bookworm Book Review - The Lost Sun by Tessa Gratton

Tessa Gratton has done something truly unique and remarkable with her first norse fantasy novel. She's not set in the past or in a parallel world but in an ALTERNATIVE WORLD! Where Vikings really did discover America and settle, where the old gods are still worshipped despite so much modern technology and where there are really Beserker warriors and Seers and everyone has a favourite god or goddess and from time to time the Gods themselves interact with the American government and sooo much more. It is an incredible thing to try and create an alternative world to our own that is soo different and yet so recognisable at the same time. I can't recommend this book enough and it is a book aimed at teenagers and is such a great way to introduce them to the norse ways, culture, history and beliefs. Please do click on the cover to read my full review.
