Overview

We lusted for an even greater prize...It is the one prize that can never be lost or stolen or burnt. And we would find it in Miklagard... aven and the Wolfpack have suffered. Good men have died and the treasures they fought so hard for have been lost. But to such men as these there is something more valuable than silver. That thing is fame - for fame is the saga-story that a Viking warrior leaves behind when he dies. ow the sea road leads to Constantinople, which Norsemen call Miklagard, the Great City, for it is there that they might find both riches and glory. But the Great City is far away and the voyage there takes the Fellowship in to unknown waters where they face new enemies. From the wind-whipped marshes of the Carmargue to the crumbling walls and arenas of a decaying Rome, Raven must fight harder for his life than ever before. He must prove himself to others - and he must watch his back too, for an old enemy is sharpening his treacherous claws.

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.

Author Information

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. To find out more, visit www.gileskristian.com
