I am a fan of Michaels's work, and his story, The Viking Throne is another great story that came from a grand imagination. The story brings the reader in the middle of it, and it definitely does not lack action. I enjoyed the depths of the characters, and their intense emotions that bring this story to life. This was definitely not a cookie-cutter or stereotypical story, and Michaels brings a fresh take on new villains and monsters. As always, I look forward to reading more by this author. Anything Michaels writes, I'll definitely read.
