An entertaining gateway to Hell, and toward darker fiction

This review covers the trilogy, printed in 1986 but released in an eBook omnibus in 2013 called Bloodsong! — Hel X 3 by C. Dean Andersson

History and Style: The three books combined in Bloodsong! — Hel X 3 were written within ~1.5 yrs (1985-86). C. Dean Andersson (aka Asa Drake) was motivated to make a fun horror series on quick timing. The result was easily digestible horror / fantasy, all rooted in Viking lore. The trilogy includes: 1)

I should have read this thirty years ago.

Remember the 80s wave of barbarian movies following on the heels of "Conan - The Barbarian" with Arnold Schwarzenegger?
Lot's of sleaze in that genre back in the days, and that's exactly what the Bloodsong trilogy is.
Viking mythology, sleaze, and the trademark colourful 80s bad computer CGI (no honestly it's really in there) with a good helping of heavy BDSM scenes.

Reads like a guilty pleasure.
I'm too old to like overt use of sexualized violence in a nove

I think this a nice wrap up for the series.

A lot more interaction, by the Norse gods.
As final showdown, with Hela and her minions comes.
New characters, twists and turns continue to appear.
More trials and quests from the gods. Along the way.

While leaving plenty of room. For the main characters.
That started the journey book one.
Plus some revelations, about the main character Bloodsong's origins.
That she never had any previous idea of.

All in all, a well paced, action oriented ride.
Worth the read. E
