Norway, AD 785. It began with the betrayal of a lord by a king.... King Gorm puts Jarl Harald's family to the sword but makes one fatal mistake - he fails to kill Harald's youngest son, Sigurd. His kin slain, his village seized and its people taken as slaves, Sigurd wonders if the gods have forsaken him. Hunted by powerful men, he is unsure who to trust, and yet he has a small band of loyal followers at his side.

The book has an immediate catch. It is well written and the performance was great.

I had a lot of fun listening to this book. I enjoyed all of the back stories and the strong independent characters. The narrators were wonderful and added their own flare to their character's chapter.

Kiernan, Karl Edward Wagner, Elizabeth Bear, and Nick Mamatas.

I enjoyed the majority of the stories; however, a few did not meet my liking. More of a personal opinion than an assessment of the work. I would not recommend it for a long car ride, as you may start checking your mirrors for the Elder Gods and their underlings. If the car in front of you looks like it has inverted angles, it may be time for a change up.
