Overview

If you betray a Fellowship you are a dead man, and Ealdorman Ealdred of Wessex had betrayed us. With revenge on their minds, Raven and the Wolfpack plough the sea road in pursuit of the traitor Ealdred. Having left the Fellowship for dead, the ealdorman has sailed in search of the Frankish Emperor Charlemagne and the promise of riches beyond his imagining. In following Ealdred, Raven and his sword-brothers find themselves in the heart of a Christian empire that would wipe their kind from the face of the earth. And danger waits round every bend of the great river up which they travel - Sigurd will fight for his life while Raven will be betrayed, imprisoned and left to rot... A mysterious young man with no memory and a blood-tainted eye, Raven has found friendship and purpose amongst this fierce brotherhood. He has proven himself in battle and is certain now that Viking blood flows in his veins, but to survive, his cunning must now be as sharp as his blade. This thrilling new chapter in the Raven saga confirms that, in Giles Kristian, action-packed historical fiction has a new master.

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
