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...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A gripping, bloody narrative." * BBC History magazine *
"A powerful, lightning-paced tale of the Norsemen in England; an astonishing and riveting debut" -- Bernard Cornwell
"An unabashed carnival of bloodletting, betrayal and rough sex...Kristian has a knack for writing real blokes living their lives" * Daily Telegraph *
"Plenty of interest for fans of Norse tales, with battles galore and the promise of more to come" * Daily Mail *
"A gripping tale of action and treachery which splendidly conjures up the sounds, sights and smells of Dark Age Britain. It creates a believable world of men fighting, feasting and braving the sea, a time when the Christian and Norse gods were very real and very close in the thoughts of mankind. It leaves the reader keen for the sequel" -- Harry Sidebottom, author of Warrior of Rome
