An absolutely thrilling action and war-filled adventure as the Burgundars battle for survival against the combined might of Rome and the Huns from 436AD. I fell into and devoured this historical adventure as it roared into being from the first page. In a time when Christianity was spreading through Europe, the old ways and gods still mattered when it came to war. Travelling across nearly twenty years of the Burgundars desperate fight for survival a number of smaller stories are told and combine to make one fabulously rousing novel. With a vivid sense of time and place, I felt the land, the beliefs, the fading glory of Rome and fearsome power of the Huns. Author Tim Hodkinson writes with an eloquence that balances this awe-inspiring epic tale with the intimate stories of individual lives. Hagan stood as a particular favourite of mine, yet all the characters shone with vitality even if it was greed and selfishness. The women also matter here, whether lying on a pampered couch in Rome or fully immersed in battle, legends are made. I will admit that I’m hoping for more, for the story to continue in this LoveReading Star Book. Sword of the War God is a heart-stirring and dramatic historical adventure tale of war and survival that we can highly recommend.
