"Swords of Good Men is a fabulous debut and a gripping read, which I enjoyed so much I found myself putting off reading the final pages because I didn’t want it to end. More please!"
Mieneke van der Salm, www.afantasticallibrarian.com
" I was gripped from beginning to end, it feels like Kristjansson has been producing books like this for years. I’m a little bit in awe, but rest assured I’ll be keeping an eye out for this author’s next novel."
