The Call Of Gelduur
Description: “Start your journey in the mysterious islands of Norrland, embark on an adorable pillaging cruise, sail bravely through a fierce storm and reach the island-kingdom of Ingorle… shipwrecked and defenseless. But don’t worry, it’s not that bad. Not yet. Not until the soldiers of Ingorle turn you into a slave and send you up north to defend their borders from a hidden threat that only reveals itself moments before killing the beholder in a very rude way. Now it’s truly bad. So, again, don’t worry. It should get better. Especially since the hidden threat strikes and…OK, that’s enough for spoilers. Read the book!”
Reader review: “I was expecting a light read, full of humour and of course the occasional bloodshed.
I got all I wanted and more!
Jack Alriksson manages to make you actually laugh out loud while reading about the adventures of his rag-tag crew of Norrlanders – the characters are nicely created and each has its own motivation.
For some this means gold and power, while for others it’s booze and finding the best way to bash a head in, hopefully while staying alive in the process.
And to top things off, there’s actually a well developed plot besides all this debauchery. I especially enjoyed the strategies outlined and battle descriptions. Oh, and the scheming – that sweet-sweet scheming.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good light read, full of humour and all bonded together with a more than decent plot.
Oh, and Mr Jack! Don’t you go George R. R. Martin on us with that sequel!”
