Publisher's Summary

The Hunger of the Gods continues John Gwynne's acclaimed Norse-inspired epic fantasy series, packed with myth, magic and bloody vengeance.

Lik-Rifa, the dragon god of legend, has been freed from her eternal prison. Now she plots a new age of blood and conquest.   

As Orka continues the hunt for her missing son, the Bloodsworn sweep south in a desperate race to save one of their own - and Varg takes the first steps on the path of vengeance.   

Elvar has sworn to fulfil her blood oath and rescue a prisoner from the clutches of Lik-Rifa and her dragonborn followers, but first she must persuade the Battle-Grim to follow her.  

Yet even the might of the Bloodsworn and Battle-Grim cannot stand alone against a dragon god.   

Their hope lies within the mad writings of a chained god. A book of forbidden magic with the power to raise the wolf god Ulfrir from the dead...and bring about a battle that will shake the foundations of the earth.

It got me hooked

I really enjoyed it as a whole.

The story got me in, and kept me engaged throughout. Not a new story but definitely enjoyable.

The narrator was fantastic.

narration

narrator can seem flat and lacks range so makes it hard to tell som characters apart when so many sound the same. Brilliant 2nd part to a trilogy though

what happened to consistency

I listened to the first book in the this series, excellent story wonderfully narrated Colin Mace. the same team for the second book .... but Colin.... what happened!!?? You changed how you pronounced key words (brynja, seax) you even changed the voices of characters, all in between one book (Vyck).... Really disappointing.

Can’t wait for Book 3!

Read the first one and loved it so much I Preordered Hunger of the Gods, made myself finish my other book before starting this one and I’ve read it in a week or so! Super excited for book three, going to work my wa through some of his other novels while I wait.
Love the Colin Mace, gives good different voices/dialects to characters and is just pleasant to listen too as well
Highly recommend!

Another epic instalment

I loved this book and the narration was engaging and immersive. The different character arcs are well conceived and the world Gwynne has created is incredibly compelling. I can't wait for book three!

Flawless sequel

Absolute banger. The action, the tension, the flow and rhythm of the story telling and the world building are all incredible. I had a couple of issues with the first book but this one was perfect. Oh and the fact it included a recap of the first book was amazing. Every sequel for every book should have one. We'll done to the narrator, he nailed it.

Incredible

This, as well as the previous book, has to be one of the best stories I have ever heard! and the story is narrated so well! I really do not think another narrator could have done it any better at all.

a big improvement from book 1

book 1 was good but not great, I felt like it was missing in depth character development and even thought the plot was interesting I did not feel entangled in it. book 2 fixed it all, this was a great continuation of the story and I can not wait for book 3. well worth the money.
