Review

"A truly remarkable debut - wonderful storytelling [...] I felt throughout that I was in a safe pair of hands and just sat back and enjoyed the story, happy to let the author take me wherever he wanted to go. Highly recommended." - Debbie Young, author of Springtime For Murder
 
"Yes, I got a little bit of mystery with a little bit of magic, followed by INSANE, jaw-dropping revelations. But at its heart, Storytellers is a tale of evading the darkness, bearing with the pain of tragedy, and living to see the sun rise another day." - Justine Bergman
 
"The book was reminiscent of Kazuo Ishiguro's The Buried Giant, in both theme and mood. [...] It isn't always the easiest read, but it's not a book I'm going to forget easily, either." - Marian L. Thorpe, author of Empire's Daughter

"I loved this book - it was a delight to read, an unusual debut novel by a writer with much talent. [...] This a work of literary art that I recommend most highly; Bjørn Larssen is, indeed, an Icelandic storyteller." - Terry Tyler, author of Legacy

Product Description

Would you murder your brothers to keep them from telling the truth about themselves?
On a long, cold Icelandic night in March 1920, Gunnar, a hermit blacksmith, finds himself with an unwanted lodger – Sigurd, an injured stranger who offers a story from the past. But some stories, even those of an old man who can barely walk, are too dangerous to hear. They alter the listeners' lives forever… by ending them.

Others are keen on changing Gunnar’s life as well. Depending on who gets to tell his story, it might lead towards an unwanted marriage, an intervention, rejoining the Church, letting the elf drive him insane, or succumbing to the demons in his mind. Will he manage to write his own last chapter?

Bjørn Larssen’s award-winning, Amazon #1 best selling novel is an otherworldly, emotive Icelandic saga – a story of love and loneliness, relief and suffering, hatred… and hope.

"Addictive to the extreme. I cannot praise this book enough." – Mary Anne Yarde, Coffee Pot Book Club

"...the ‘then’ is just as captivating as the ‘now’ story. We know that the ‘then’ story is setting out little clues, but it’s hard to know what they are." – #DDRevs Historical Fiction Reviews
