really liked it
bookshelves: for-class, fantasy

Again, haven't read the whole thing cover to cover, but this one's worth mentioning because of "Dagor Dagorath", which sounds pretty close to the Old Norse Ragnarøkkr. It'd be the version with renewal, of course, not the posited version in which there's Ragnarøkkr and that's that, but still...

Interesting that he takes so much from pagan sources, given the Christian slant of the rest.
