Shackled Fates is a brilliant continuation of the epic Norse Saga in The Hanged God Trilogy. The more I read Thilde's work the more in love I am with her storytelling. This book starts from where we left off and can be seen in the way the chapters are numbered. I love that it feels like this one epic tale and I am pretty sure it will be talked about for years to come. It has that special quality and uniqueness that stands out and Thilde with this book has become an auto-buy author for me. It has that timeless and otherworldly sense to it.
