Book Review for God’s Hammer (Hakon’s Saga, #1) by Eric Schumacher

Posted on August 1, 2017

Here is my book review for Eric Schumacher’s first book in the Hakon’s Saga, God’s Hammer.

History, legend, and fiction blend together with an expert hand in “God’s Hammer”, a gripping historical fiction novel by Eric Schumacher. The novel covers Hakon Haraldsson early life in the court of King Athelstan of England, his foster father, and Hakon’s eventual return to Norway to face his murderous brother, Erik Bloodaxe, in a battle to seize the throne. I really enjoyed the action and adventure and was quickly drawn in with the great descriptive writing and well developed characters. I especially liked the way historical information was presented in a way that added to the depth of the story and didn’t feel like it was just stuffed in around the edges (like some other historical fiction novels I’ve read). I look forward to reading the next installment of Hakon’s journey and can’t recommend this novel enough.
