    The adventure continues ...... This is a bloody brilliant series! And can I say that when we ever get to the end, I will be starting from the very beginning in a self-indulgent binge session.

    I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. I admit, when I requested The Serpent King I failed to notice it is the fourth in a series of novels set in the Viking Era. Ordinarily I would never start a series anywhere but at the beginning but fortunately this turned out not to be a problem. Without using great globs of exposition, Hodkingson fills the reader in on any essential details while keeping the tale running at a breakneck pace.

I admit, when I requested The Serpent King I failed to notice it is the fourth in a series of novels set in the Viking Era. Ordinarily I would never start a series anywhere but at the beginning but fortunately this turned out not to be a problem. Without using great globs of exposition, Hodkingson fills the reader in on any essential details while keeping the tale running at a breakneck pace. Einar Thorfinnsson is a young, driven man who was had the fortune to join a pack of Wolf Coats, fierce warriors committed to Odin and to their leader, Ulrich. From the moment we land in their sleek vessel, driving through a storm-tossed night, the pace never falters and we travel from one dangerous venture to another, from Norway to the Orkneys, to the Scottish Isles, and finally to Iceland as Einar pursues his destiny and Ulrich leads the wolves to glory. And gore. Lots and lots of gore. Hodkinson clearly knows his history, not only of the great leaders of the North in the last days of the 10th Century, but of common folk, of seamanship and battle skills. The writing reminds me very much of the best of the Pulp Era in the 1930s--in the very best sense--adventure that grabs the reader by the throat and hangs on without mercy, page after page. Be certain I'm going to seek out the three novels of the Whale Road Chronicles that precede The Serpent King and whatever tales may follow.

    I found this to be a good read with an interesting plot and well developed characters. The book contained great action scenes and should keep you entertained till the end. Thank you to #NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for my honest review.
