Synopsis

Raven: Odin's Wolves by Giles Kristian

We lusted for an even greater prize...the one prize that can never be lost or stolen or burnt. And we would find it in Miklagard...Raven and the Wolfpack have suffered. Good men have died, treasure has been lost. But to Norsemen such as these there is something more valuable than silver: fame - for fame is the saga-story that a warrior leaves behind when he dies. Now the Fellowship sails in search of Constantinople, which they call Miklagard, for it is there that they hope to find both riches and glory. It is a voyage that will lead them into unknown and dangerous waters - from the barren, wind-whipped marshes of the Carmargue to the crumbling walls and blood-drenched arenas of a decaying Rome, from brutal hand-to-hand conflict, to vile treachery and betrayal. And as Miklagard echoes to the sound of sword and axe and spear, Raven and his fellow adventurers will pay a high price for the fame they seek...

Reviews

Kristian can really write...his battle scenes are bone crunchingly good, his descriptions of the Viking world bright and evocative...a great storyteller. -- Ben Kane, Author Of The Forgotten Legion If this is the last we see of Raven Bloodeye - and I really hope it's not - this is a storming, magnificent end to what has been one of the best Viking series of all time. Authentic, bloody, visceral action, a beautiful, lyric prose that sweeps off the tongue like the old norse sagas, this is tale-telling at its rip-roaring best. -- M. C. Scott Giles Kristian captures the lyrical cadences of Anglo-Saxon verse in his poetic narrative. It's a masterly achievement, full of blood-drenched battle scenes, yet with tender moments too. The young narrator Raven earns his spurs among grizzled older Vikings as they maraud Mediterranean shores. Kristian evokes the warriors
stubborn camaraderie and their own strange code. DAILY EXPRESS 20110708

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.
