Editorial Reviews

Review

...The historical research clearly shines through, in both the secular and religious aspects of life for the English and the Northmen. God's Hammer has a good narrative flow, including action and dialogue, with the political / historical backdrop of the time and place: the English, Danes and Northmen. I highly recommend this historical fiction novel, both for its entertaining story and historical information about specific events from a time little known and studied today, the Dark Ages.... -- Lynda Ochsner of Historical Fiction Review

...I was swept up in the action and enthralled by the descriptions of Hakon's struggle... -- Robert H. Goss on Roundtable Reviews

...The author has a strong background in the history of Dark Ages Europe... -- Brad Eden of the Historical Novel Society

From the Publisher

Robert H. Goss on Roundtable Reviews

It is the year AD 927 and Hakon, son of King Harald Fairhair, is being transported to a life as foster son to King Athelstan of Engla-lond. Hakon’s education is at the hands of a Christian priest, and Hakon is baptized into Christianity. Word reaches Hakon that his father has died and Hakon’s brother, Erik has killed two of his brothers in battle and has taken the throne. Hakon is persuaded to go back to Trondlaw to remove Erik from power and to restore peace to the land.

God's Hammer is a wonderful story of the struggles of Hakon Haraldsson to overcome the fears of his people and to become the first Christian King of what is now called Norway. At first I had difficulties reading the story, but after the first couple of chapters, I was swept up in the action and enthralled by the descriptions of Hakon’s struggle. Readers will not be disappointed in this book.
