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....

The story begins with an amnesiac lad who is adopted by an English carpenter. It is around the tenth or eleventh century when Norsemen came to trade and plunder. And they are indignant when called Danes as they are from Norway. I listen to books when undertaking mindless tasks such as ironing or weeding. I couldn’t find enough such tasks! If you love action stories, of brotherhood and warfare, you will love this book. I hated to leave it and go back to my normal routine!
