FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF LANCELOT
The first book in a thrilling Viking trilogy that launched the career of acclaimed historical novelist Giles Kristian - who's now confronting the tumult and devastation of the English Civil War in The Bleeding Land...
For two years Osric has lived a simple life, though he is feared and shunned for his mysterious past and blood-red eye. When raiders from across the sea ransack his village, Osric finds himself taken prisoner by their chief, Sigurd the Lucky.
Immersed in the Norsemen's world and driven by their lust for adventure, Osric proves a natural warrior and forges a deep bond with Sigurd, who renames him Raven. But the Norsemen's world is a savage one, where loyalty is often repaid in blood, and a young man must become a killer to survive...

I thought I would try Giles Kristian after his successful co-writing with Wilbur smith.
Am glad I did great characters shield walls and suspense.
Just purchased the next one in the series and feel now have a new author to enjoy.
