I posted something similar in the Romance forum, because I'm not sure what this would be classified as...romance, or history, or even fantasy, but I love the stories of Siegfried and Brunhild and the elements of those legends. Anyone ever come across any novels with or close to these storylines? Or Norse/Germanic legends or history in general?
Try Greenlanders by Jane Smiley. This one is written using the same style as the sagas, it's very good. I think it's available.
Sigrid Undset has 2 great series: Kristin Lavransdatter and Master of Hestviken. Undset won a Nobel prize.
Eric Brighteyes by H. Rider Haggard
King Harald's Saga by Snorri Sturlson
The Thrall's Tale - Judith Lingbergh - I loved this one!
The Sea Road - Margaret Elphinstone.
I also love reading the Norse sagas, The Saga of Vinland, Njal's Saga, and many more.
