Review: A Gathering of Ravens – Scott Oden

He goes by many names, in many cultures. Known as a skraelingr to the Danes, Grimnir is almost a type of demon. When awoken, he goes on a journey of revenge against the Dane who killed his brother, kidnapping a young, Christian as a guide.


Why this book?: The cover is gorgeous, and the summary NetGalley provided immediately caught my interest.

I would like to thank the people at Thomas Dunne Books for allowing me to have an ARC of this book via NetGalley.
