Hal Dawson's life in a quiet English village is shattered when swart-elves from another world attempt to kill him.
Rescuing Hal, his old friend Gangrel tells him that the swart-elves are allies of Muspell, the fire-giant, who plots to destroy the world of the gods. Gangrel sends Hal on a quest through the Nine Worlds of Norse myth in search of the dwarf who will forge the foretold Runeblade - Muspell's bane.
Forger of the Runeblade is the first book in the Runeblade Saga.
It goes on and on and on
I wanted to like this book and it had promise but the lack of editing and switching between parallel storylines with no transition / chapters break or even a couple line spaces between is quite frustrating and makes it a hard read.
