It's probably just me, and I'm not saying it's a bad thing but I keep finding similarities between this and Jessie's Kastor Chronicles.

The world's feel similar - there are barbarian nomads, immortal characters and multiple gods that take a little too much interest in the world.

And the Gil/Kastor character is similar - tall, gay, moody, dark-haired, a touch of magic, speaks multiple languages, banished noble, special sword(s), the favor of gods and a berserker fighting spirit.

I liked it overall but I found it massively confusing (I had to stop and re-read the first one, which help a bit). I do really like the Gil character and I'm looking forward to the next one.
