Inspired by both his family history and his storytelling heroes, Bernard Cornwell and Conn Iggulden, Giles began writing this thrilling tale of an English boy’s coming of age amongst a band of marauding warriors from across the grey seas. Raven: Blood Eye was published to great acclaim and two further adventures have followed. Giles lives in Leicestershire where he writes full-time.

January 2010 Debut of the Month. A really good yarn with constant changes of pace, action and drama as the Vikings sweep on England. It begins a trilogy of bloody and lusty adventures with a terrific hero. Wonderful escapist stuff. Comparison: Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden, Tim Severin.
