SFF Author: Snorri Kristjansson

Snorri Kristjansson(1974- )
Snorri Kristjansson was born in Reykjavik in 1974. He moved to Norway in 1983, where he lived for 7 years and found a passionate aversion to skiing. Since 2005, Snorri has been London-based, dabbling in classical acting and stand-up comedy while teaching children about Shakespeare and Drama. Swords of Good Men is his first novel, and the first instalment of the Valhalla Saga. It has Vikings in it, so expect moderate cursing and beards. [Photo Credit: Gunnar Freyr]

Path of Gods: Has its moments

Path of Gods by Snorri Kristjansson

Path of Gods is the third book in Snorri Kristjansson’s VALHALLA SAGA and it pretty much stays the path of what has come before, for good and ill. I rated the prior two books three-stars each, and that’s exactly where I’m placing Path of Gods. Fun dialogue, several engaging characters, and an excellent Norse setting are the strengths, while pace, fluidity, and characterization are the weaker elements.

Path of Gods picks up where Blood Will Follow ended,
