Odin’s Game (The Whale Road Chronicles Book 1) by Tim Hodkinson GIVEAWAY!!!

Today I’m very happy to be bringing to you an opportunity to win a paperback copy of Tim Hodkinson’s Odin’s Game (The Whale Road Chronicles Book1)

Here’s the blurb.

Not everyone will survive, but who will conquer all in Odin’s game?

AD 916.

In the Orkney Isles, a young woman flees her home to save the life of her unborn child. Eighteen years later, a witch foretells that evil from her past is reaching out again to threaten her son.

Outlawed from his home in Iceland, Einar Unnsson is thrown on the mercy of his Uncle, the infamous Jarl Thorfinn ‘Skull Cleaver’ of Orkney. He joins forces with a Norse-Irish princess and a company of wolfskin-clad warriors to become a player in a deadly game for control of the Irish sea, where warriors are the pawns of kings and Jarls and the powerful are themselves mere game pieces on the tafl board of the Gods.

Together they embark on a quest where Einar must fight unimaginable foes, forge new friendships, and discover what it truly means to be a warrior. As the clouds of war gather, betrayal follows betrayal and Einar realises the only person he can really trust is himself.

The Fantasy Collection – Competition

Ok so I’ve raved about StoryBundle before. If you’ve not heard of it then take a look here – www.storybundle.com  .

What StoryBundle offer you is brilliant chance to own a collect of books at a bargain price. Authors get together to offer the collection of books and you decide how much to pay (minimum $5) and how much of that goes to the authors and how much goes to StoryBundle itself.

I really like the idea, it quickly give you a bunch of books which are along the same theme at a reasonable price and it’s a great way to be introduced to new authors.

A new bundle is now out which one of my favourite authors has curated, Charlotte E. English.

Here’s some blurb –

The Fairytale Fantasy Bundle, curated by Charlotte E. English: Most of us grew up with fairy stories, of one sort or another. Almost everyone has a favourite, or a whole book of favourites. Tricky things, fairy tales; they change with the years, adapt themselves to their audience or their culture, fade in one place only to reappear in different clothes half a world away. They are stories of magic and enchantment; of men in the worlds of faerie (or more recently, faeries in the worlds of men); of talking animals and curses, enchanted shoes and porridge-pots; of ogres and dragons and giants, quests and princesses and pixies.

Fairy tales have been inspiring and influencing the fantasy genre for many years, adding colour and quirks and style – and sometimes running off, giggling, with the plot. This is a bundle full of wonder, fairytale-fashion. Well-loved stories come up new in Christine Pope’s Ashes of Roses and the multi-author anthology Once Upon a Kiss. The darker side of the fairy tale comes to the fore in Gwynn White & Erin St Pierre’s Queen of Extinction. Talking animals, witches, damsels and royalty predominate in T. Kingfisher’s quirky tale The Raven and the Reindeer, and Alethea Kontis’s Trixter. Deb Logan and Anthea Sharp mix fairy-tale lore with the modern world in Faery Unexpected and Feyland. And I offer a gallimaufry of magic markets, wayward boots and faerie royalty in Faerie Fruit and Bessie Bell and the Goblin King. 

You can click here to read much more about the bundle, and make sure to click on each cover for reviews, a preview and a personal note from our curator!

Pay the minimum and you’ll get 4 books, pay $14 and you’ll get an extra 5 books so 9 books for just over £10! Not bad eh?
