The thrilling, blood-stirring, blood-soaked new chapter in the story of Raven and his fellow Viking warriors. This is the third in the Raven series which just gets better and better with each new instalment. If you like Bernard Cornwell but don't get enough of him then do try Giles Kristian, he won't disappoint.
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...

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.More About Giles Kristian
