Folkloric and atmospheric, The Bone Houses was one of the better books I've read this year.
I was in a fantasy reading slump for months - and The Phantom Forest pulled me out of it.
An entertaining - if not long - foray into the Norse pantheon.
I expected a bit more Viking and less Asgard and Giants and Dwarves. Instead, I found a tale as deep and explosive as Hekla the volcano erupting and destroying a mountain and valley.
