Although I internally sighed whenever his chapter came up, I appreciated those more in the last part of the book given his unique perspective and role in the events. Now I can say yes I fully understand why is Gwynne so hyped and now I'm motivated again to read the Faithful and the Fallen. Also, if it has been a while since you’ve read The Shadow of the Gods, Gwynne has included something handy and helpful for his readers, just proving even further that he cares about his readers.

The world building is beautifully designed, the story is incredibly engaging, and the battle sequences are raw and relentless.It's easy to forget where each POV character is going because everyone was constantly traveling to a place before moving on to travel again.

But as we all know already, none of our top favorite authors can keep a 5/5 stars track record lasting forever. John Gwynne is a master of his craft, and his characters in this story are (in my opinion) the best he's ever created. However, I knew from the last quarter, and the end of the first novel, that she's going to be a crucially important character in The Bloodsworn Saga, and The Hunger of the Gods proved that. The three characters are swept up in this larger plot in different ways, which just makes the story richer.Sure, I empathized with Orka for example and desperately wanted her to find Breca but I did not feel any connection nor link with the characters. But he continues to amaze me with his ability to introduce unique compelling storylines, magnificent otherworldly creatures, interesting characters who you care about so deeply, and that trademark Gwynne writing that is always tight, witty, and filled with memorable quotes that you can't help but highlight and refer back to later. Resurrected gods, warring clans, perilous quests, mesmerizing magic, a landscape that transports you to an amazing new place, and a sense of wonder that attracts us all to fantasy books in the first place. Even though I’d prefer to have the next installment of The Bloodsworn Saga in my hands right now, I have a new favorite author, and I plan on reading his ENTIRE backlist while waiting for the next book. I also highly appreciate the summary, map, and list of characters/terms which was found at the start of the book.

There are few more additional POV characters from the antagonist's side which will give you an idea about their reasoning and what they are upto. 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. Hunger of the Gods was my most anticipated book of the year, after absolutely loving Shadow of the Gods last year. Though some characters, like Svik and Einar, took more of a supporting role/backseat in this installment. Before I start reviewing this book, I have to mention that this book includes a detailed “story so far” section, a glossary and a character list!I really enjoyed the depth of the connecting stories and how they are all running steadfast into one another. And despite it having fewer battle scenes than Gwynne's standard in his sequels, the Gwynnado in the middle section and the final 15% of the novel were excellent as always. The Shadow of the Gods is absolutely stunning, one hell of an epic series opener, and a spectacular dose of Viking-flavoured fantasy.
