Review of Odin's Betrayal by Donovan Cook

Odin’s Betrayal is a decent start to a historical fiction series I can see becoming one of my favourites. It has everything I like to see in these kinds of books: vikings, strong characters, and some enjoyable action sequences. 

I think the driving force of this book is Charles’ character development. He’s kind of weak at the beginning, but his very long physical journey and the trials he faces really mould him into a harder person, without removing what makes him likeable, although I think he still has some way to go yet…!

You can expect a fast plot for most of the book, especially after the first third. I read Odin’s Betrayal very quickly and look forward to seeing where the story goes from here.
