Riddle of the Gods – dive into the VERY exciting life of Olaf Tryggvason

Today, I am hosting Eric Schumacher and his latest release, Riddle of the Gods, as part of his Coffee Pot Book Club tour. Seeing as I am Swedish and had a mother who would happily read to me from the Edda when I was a child, I have something of a soft spot for the Norse legends–especially as told by Snorre Sturlasson, who must reasonably be considered one of the more talented writers to have lived in Europe. Many of the old chronicles tell the somewhat amazing story of Olaf Tryggvason, the young prince who had his inheritance stolen from him, spent years in slavery, grew to manhood and impressive fighting skills in Kievan Rus and, eventually, reclaimed the Norwegian throne. Riddle of teh Gods is Mr Schumacher’s fourth book about Olaf – and while I haven’t read it yet, I deffo will, because the previous instalments have been very, very readable. So, if you’re into Norse legends, if you have a thing about Vikings, about action-filled narratives that have you holding your breath, I recommend you to dive into Mr Schumacher’s books. Like ASAP.


Riddle of the Gods is the riveting fourth novel in the best-selling series chronicling the life and adventures of one of Norways most controversial kings, Olaf Tryggvason.

It is AD 976. Olaf Tryggvason, the renegade prince of Norway, has lost his beloved wife to a tragedy that turns the lords of the land he rules against him. With his family gone and his future uncertain, Olaf leaves his realm and embarks on a decades-long quest to discover his course in life. Though his journey brings him power and wealth, it is not until he encounters the strange man in the streets of Dublin that his path to fame unfolds. And in that moment, he is forced to make a choice as the gods look on – a choice that could, at worst, destroy him and at best, ensure his name lives on forever.
