The second book in a new English Civil War series, you shouldn’t read this unless you’ve read book one, The Bleeding Land, but only because this is such a brilliant series it should be savoured! It follows the brothers of the Rivers family as Tom fights for Parliament and Mun for the Crown, as well as their sister Bess who desperately strives to keep her family together. Continuing not long after The Bleeding Land finished, we see how the war, and death, has changed their lives.

Reviews

'Giles Kristian does it again: another surge of hope and fury, of passion, cannon fire and musketry to blow you away and leave you reeling in its wake. Fantastic, powerful, blood-stirring stuff... done with such panache, such daring, such glory that you'll be aching for the next installment.' - Manda Scott

'This is enthralling, excellently researched and lyrically imagined. Honour, duty, selfishness and terror - you can't get better ingredients for a good book.' - Robert Low - bestselling author of the 'Oathsworn Viking series

'A rip-roaring sequel to The Bleeding Land ... well drawn, and the language and social norms of the time are used to good effect.' - SOLDIER magazine

About the Author

Giles Kristian

Having Viking ancestors himself, Giles Kristian believes that the story of Raven has always been in his blood. 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.

Insightful reader reviews and unbiased recommendations. I don't know how I chose books before Lovereading! An essential for all book lovers.

Sarah Harper

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.
