The year is A.D. 922. A refined Arab courtier, representative of the powerful Caliph of Bagdad, encounters a party of Viking warriors who are journeying to the barbaric North. He is appalled by their Viking customs — the wanton sexuality of their pale, angular women, their disregard for cleanliness . . . their cold-blooded human sacrifices. But it is not until they reach the depths of the Northland that the courtier learns the horrifying and inescapable truth: He has been enlisted by these savage, inscrutable warriors to help combat a terror that plagues them — a monstrosity that emerges under cover of night to slaughter the Vikings and devour their flesh . . .

Review of 'Devoradores de cadaveres' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Muy interesante el uso aquí de hacer pasar la obra por un estudio de un manuscrito y otras fuentes antiguas, incluyendo pies de páginas con discusiones del tema que aportan muchos datos culturales e históricos. La historia es sumamente original, pero quizás la historia es muy detallada en el comienzo y el final está narrado mucho más rápido, me hubiera gustado profundizar más en los wendol o el conflicto.
