*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.
Attempting to raise a dead warrior, Alrekr, from his barrow mound, three companions quickly outrun their luck. Folkvardr must travel into Ironwood to rescue his lover Unnr and her slave, Huld, from Alrekr the undead corpse, even if he must face Angrboda, the ettin of Ironwood herself.
While a very creative and well-written tale I was put off by the weird names. Also the erotic horror was a bit more than I prefer. If you like your sex on the dark fantastical side then this should be up your alley. A dark alley. Where the shadows are long and the noises inhuman.
