The Gods are Such Wonderful Jerks
Norse Mythology - Neil Gaiman

Wonderful retelling of Norse Gods. Each short story builds to the next one making it easy to follow and absorb the details. My only complaint is that is is so short I wanted 3-4 x's more. I'm greedy like that.

Torrents Games Vikings Wolves of Midgard PC
vikings-wolves-of-midgard-pc-600x300 I’ve always had a soft spot for slaying monsters with a controller in hand and a friend by my side. Torrents Games Vikings Wolves of Midgard PC From Wizards of Wor on the Atari, to the original Gauntlet in arcades, to the Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance series on PlayStation 2, I’ve grown from simple hack-and-slash adventures to deep action-RPGs with extensive customization and juggling multiple combat skills.And now, Vikings – Wolves of Midgard enters the fray. It puts you in the sturdy boots of a viking (either the stronger male warrior or the faster female shieldmaiden) entrusted with defending the world against a race of ice demons who have been plunging the world into a deep freeze. Along the way, you’ll rescue survivors to slowly repopulate a safe haven village with blacksmiths and merchants. It’s just enough to capture your attention, but easy enough to tune out as you joke around and spout Lord of the Rings dialogue with an online partner.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2016-12-25 21:21
To Find a Viking Treasure
To Find a Viking Treasure (Norse Series Book 2) - Gina Conkle

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

I read Norse Jewel, Gina Conkle’s debut novel and thought it was a wonderful read. At that time, I didn’t know it was going to be a series. But the story ended in a way that left some confusions, felt like there were “more”. A year or two later, when the author told me she was going to develop this story into a series, I was super excited. To Find a Viking Treasure is the book 2 of Norse series.

Now, let me tell you that I read book 1 in 2013 so my memory is a bit vague. I do remember the initial storyline, and the characters, H Hakan, a Viking lord and his newly bought Frankish slave, Helena who was the h of the story. Hakan was returning home and bought Helena from a slave trader on the way. Actually he bought some slaves, Helena and her friend Sestra were among them. I remember that Helena came from a good family, but circumstances brought her where she was, while Sestra, in true sense, have always been a thrall.

Hakan was married before but that was over with his nutcase first wife. He had the need of womanly touch in his longhouse. He had a little boy named Erik, whom Astrid won’t even let him visit. But the boy would always find a way to steal away to meet his father when he was back from one conquest or the other. The father-son bond was much stronger than what Astrid could do. Soon Hakan also begins noticing Helena for who she was— a loyal, kind-hearted woman who was also a hard-worker. She was the polar opposite of Astrid; both in looks and in temperament. For Helena, she was apprehensive at first about her treatment, but soon she finds that Hakan is a kind, fair as well as a generous master. She soon begins having feelings for Hakan, though she knew the only thing she can ever be to him is a mistress if there’s anything. But Hakan even wasn’t like that, take pleasure from his slaves or thralls then discard them.
