    One thought on “The Vanirim”

    1. Hi, this is not a review, as I wrote the book! But I thought I would take the opportunity to talk about what on earth inspired me to write a post apocalyptic Viking murder mystery! I still kind of scratch my head about that one too, to be honest! I originally started writing the book as a straight crime noir story about a guy who becomes the key suspect in a series of murders, and starts to suspect against all reason, that he has a twin brother he never knew about that is actually the one respon [...]

    2. This is a futuristic book written about a time after the world has been invaded and subjugated by a race of ancient demi-gods, who have supposedly watched the earth for millennia and have to intervene in order to save the human race from destroying the earth and itself. This race of ruling demi-gods, called the Vanir, are supposedly indestructible, until they start to die, and the human who is being blamed for their deaths, Tully McIntyre, viewed as an hero by all of humankind. The book kept me [...]

    3. I love fantasy. I love action. I love end of the world stories.I don't usually read crime stories but this one is a blend of fantasy/action/crime about a serial killer who starts killing these immortal demigods who have taken over the earth. Except suddenly they aren't immortal and can't work out how the killer is able to kill them. The suspect, Tully McIntyre, is this slightly quirky kid who we learn more about as the book unfolds, told from his point of view and a cop who is investigating him. [...]

    4. ABOUT THE BOOK : This story is set in a post apocalyptic world in future where the Earth or Midgard  is ruled by the VIKING GODS, VANIR. After the one sided Pacification War (where not a single Vanir was killed) between Man and Vanirim the Vanir took control to make earth a better place free from crime, pollution and all other major mistakes dwelling on earth. The story’s male protagonist is Tully McIntyre a 19 year old child care worker and social worker who stumbles on the most impossible e [...]

    5. I received a free copy of this book from the author. This book certainly was surreal. Just when I thought I'd figured it out, in comes the twist. This is one book I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I know absolutely nothing about norse mythology but everything here was easy to understand and I never felt out of the loop. There wasn't a single moment where the pace dropped. It was interesting till the last page. I loved the characters but the only thing I think this book lacked was that I didn't know [...]

    6. Norse mythology is built seamlessly and convincingly with a scientific stance in this post apocalyptic world. The characters are sound, there are some superb twists in the plot, and there's a fascinating exploration into the human psyche. It was enjoyable as a standalone novel, even though it's heavily implied there's more to follow, that I would happily read.Many thanks to the author/publisher for the chance to read The Vanirim, which I received for free in a first-reads giveaway for an honest [...]

    7. I liked reading this book. The story and the main character stay interesting till the end. There are some unexpected plot twists, and I liked how the author weaved quantum physics into the story.The Viking element is very small in my opinion, I would have liked to see more of that. Also, I think it's more of a science fiction novel, than a fantasy novel, with some pinches of dystopian and detective.

    8. Originally posted on Book-o-Craze!This was a quite interesting and a bit unusual read for me!I had intended to finish it and post my review sooner, but I needed to get better used to it, before starting to think about the mysteries surrounding the hero and the cases in which he has been involved!This is mainly because a whole new world, that was submitted to the superior beings, Vanir, was described in this novel, which also had its own set of rules and laws!In this world, the people that commit [...]

    9. So, first I have to thank Goodread to give me the opportunity and also the author to be amused by this book.It took so long to read this book, because I was very busy and also because I was trying really hard to understand this immaginary new world.At the beginning, I told myself, calm down, there are just only the first pages , then you will like this book; and I was right.These first pages were an agony, I could understand nothing at all, but then BOOM, everything was clear!!I'm not saying tha [...]
