I finished this book today and wrote this messy review before sleep so I'll do the editing tomorrow and add any other points I missed. I loved the banter between Varg, Rokia and Svik, it made me smile and brought humor to a difficult world. My minor issue with the pacing aside, The Hunger of the Gods have furious battle scenes, savage display of power, intricate world-building, and well-written characters. The world building is beautifully designed, the story is incredibly engaging, and the battle sequences are raw and relentless.

How they honor their family, friends, responsibilities, own up to their mistakes, find humor, strength, and love in the darkest times, and how the best people look out for those being mistreated. This was mostly enjoyable and does a lot of what I love in Gwynnes writing which is balancing multiple POVs well, creating compelling characters and kickass combat. It was one of the things I struggled with in the first book, the new terms and keeping track of everyone. They all have strong motivations, and this book helps us to understand intellectually what their goals and needs are.

The Hunger of the Gods tempestuous final chapters have successfully prepared readers for the grand conclusion to come. When I saw we were getting Gudvar pov chapters I wasn't too excited at first, but I was totally wrong bc they were some of the most entertaining, dude is a total weasel, but he is funny as hell. I reread The Hunger of the Gods as it was released a few weeks ago, but this time tried it out in an audiobook format. The following three books in the series - Valour, Ruin and Wrath, were all shortlisted for the David Gemmell Legend Award for Best Fantasy Novels of 2014, 2015 and 2016, with Wrath winning the 2017 BookNest Awards for Best Traditionally Published Novel. Okay, incredible story and character development aside, let's talk about some of the fun settings and my favorite sequences.

However, I also have to admit that The Hunger of the Gods felt like it's filled with the infamous middle book syndrome in several sections.Elvar was the main character that took me longer than the other characters to feel invested in The Shadow of the Gods. I loved that most of the characters are honorable to their family and friends, look out for each other, and recognize their mistakes. And just for fun, I predict the third book of the trilogy will be titled The Battle of the Gods or The War of the Gods. Malice, my debut novel, was published by Pan Macmillan in 2012 and went on to win the David Gemmell Morningstar Award for Best Fantasy Debut of 2012. In my opinion, the best fantasy novels have very little to do with the actual fight scenes and everything to do with the characters' personal journeys.
