The White Raven by Robert Low
  

Synopsis

The White Raven by Robert Low

The epic and action packed third novel in Low's Oathsworn series charting the adventures of Orm and his band of Viking brothers The Oathsworn have itchy feet. Battle-hungry and tired of keeping the homestead fires burning, they are restless for action. And, being the Oathsworn, action is what they get. When their homestead is attacked by Klerkon and his men, the Oathsworn promise bloody revenge. But they didn't count on having to undertake the most dangerous journey of their lives in order to save two of their number. Packed with epic adventure and bloody action, THE WHITE RAVEN is Robert Low at his very best.

Reviews

Praise for THE WHITE RAVEN:

`Robert Low's Oathsworn trilogy is historical writing at its best and most full-blooded, with its tremendous pacing, black comedy, a wonderfully vivid and rough-hewn prose style like runes hacked into granite, and most appealingly of all, its doomy, pagan sense of comradeship-unto-death between Orm Rurikson and his band of Viking brothers'WILLIAM NAPIER

Praise for THE WHALE ROAD:

'A company of warriors, desperate battles, an enthralling read
BERNARD CORNWELL



'A fantastic book, one of the best I have read for years. There's a wonderful earthiness to proceedings and he creates a tangible sense of being there. There's a sturdy, lyrical and epic quality about the writing which makes it feel like the kind of saga a Viking would recount in his old age.'SIMON SCARROW

`A stirring Viking series of blockbuster battles and religious intrigue.'
Publishing News



`All the right ingredients are firmly in place...above all there is the storyline itself; told in an earthy, rough-and-ready stylewhich perfectly compliments this saga for the 21st Century.
Yorkshire Evening Post



`A fascinating read
The Glasgow Herald



`The Hangman humour of the band of sworn brothers gives Low's epic but brutal tale real humanity and the detail of 10th century life is wonderfully vivd. The action is fast and furious...shockingly believably so. Low's debut novel hits the mark with maximum impact.
Bridlington Today

About the Author
