Can’t Wait Wednesday : The Shadow of the Gods (The Bloodsworn Saga #1) by John Gwynne 

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is :The Shadow of the Gods (The Bloodsworn Saga #1) by John Gwynne.  I have been waiting for a description and book cover so that I could display this book.  I am so excited for this book.  Literally, I want this book.  I really do.  Anyway, here goes:

ShadowSet in a brand-new, Norse-inspired world, and packed with myth, magic and bloody vengeance, The Shadow of the Gods begins an epic new fantasy saga from bestselling author John Gwynne.

After the gods warred and drove themselves to extinction, the cataclysm of their fall shattered the land of Vigrið.

Now a new world is rising, where power-hungry jarls feud and monsters stalk the woods and mountains. A world where the bones of the dead gods still hold great power for those brave – or desperate – enough to seek them out.

Now, as whispers of war echo across the mountains and fjords, fate follows in the footsteps of three people: a huntress on a dangerous quest, a noblewoman who has rejected privilege in pursuit of battle fame, and a thrall who seeks vengeance among the famed mercenaries known as the Bloodsworn.

All three will shape the fate of the world as it once more falls under the shadow of the gods . . .

Expected publication : May 2021

    This sounds really interesting 😃

    I would buy this book sight unseen just because it’s the new Gwynne work, but that amazing dragon on the cover is certainly a further incentive… 😀

      I’ve been checking out GR’s for ages in anticipation of this cover and it really didn’t disappoint.

    How wrong is it that I see that dragon and I just want to give him a cuddle and make him smile. I’m sure that is SO not the point of the book. I do hope you enjoy this one!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – you never know, it could be a friendly dragon who gives out free rides.

    I haven’t read any John Gwynne but I’ve heard good things. Hope you enjoy this one, Lynn!

      I started with his second series and I’m so glad I did – his ‘Time of…’ books were just brilliant so I can’t wait to read what he comes up with next and this is a completely new world.

    I caught the cover reveal earlier this week, and my jaw just dropped from seeing that amazing cover!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know – I’d been waiting for the cover for this one and it’s so impressive.
      Can’t wait.
