FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF LANCELOT
We lusted for an even greater prize: one that can never be lost or stolen or burnt...
Raven and his fellow Vikings have suffered. Good men have died. Hard-won treasure has been lost. But for these Norsemen, there is something more precious than gold or silver, and that is fame - for this is what a warrior leaves behind when he has breathed his last.
And so the brotherhood sail for Constantinople, the city they call Miklagard. There, it is rumoured, both riches and glory are to be found, but the journey takes them through unknown and dangerous waters - from the wind-whipped marshes of the Camargue to the treachery and faded glory of a once-mighty Rome.
For Raven and the Wolfpack there is a high price to pay for the fame they seek. Miklagard's streets may seem paved with gold, but they also run with blood . . .
A brilliant, brutal new chapter in the story of Raven, this is historical fiction at its most authentic and exciting.

A true Skald
I have read most of Bernard Cornwell and not found another author to rival .... Until now. Raven, Sigurd and the fellowship seem as real to me as my own family.
After Raven's introduction to me I just downloaded the other two books knowing that I would not be disappointed with the saga.
Having experienced such fellowship, the trading of insults the gallows humour each and everyone of the characters lived in my mind... Thank you for taking me on Raven's journey. Finishing the last book was like loosing friends.
Please write more of Raven and Sigurd I miss them already!
