Summary

Fighting in Sweden for an ambitious warlord, Sigurd Haraldarson and his small but loyal band of oath-sworn warriors are winning fame and reputation. But Sigurd knows that to take on his hated enemy, the oath breaker King Gorm - the man who betrayed his father, a man Sigurd has vowed to kill - he must earn riches enough to build an army.
Many believe Sigurd to be Óðin-favoured, but his exploits have drawn the eye of another god, too: Loki the Trickster. And when a daring assassination attempt goes wrong, Sigurd finds himself a prisoner of the powerful Jarl Guthrum. Bound like a slave, his luck having seemingly deserted him, Sigurd is taken to the sacred temple at Ubsola, a place where the blood of human sacrifice flows to appease the gods.
It is at Ubsola that Sigurd will face the sacrificial knife. And it is here that he will find a powerful relic, the great spear that was said to have once belonged to Óðin himself.
With such a spear in his possession, Sigurd might now assemble a host strong enough to challenge King Gorm and wreak the revenge he craves. For, like Óðin, Sigurd will be the Wild Huntsman tearing through the sky on his fearsome steed, and the rage of his passing will be the sound of wings of the storm.
With Wings of the Storm, one of our finest young historical novelists brings his extraordinary Viking saga - an adventure that is sure to satisfy any Game of Thrones fan - to a triumphant close.

Spear of Destiny!

Oh yes! The clash of steel, the smell of blood and the ever-sharpening malice of the Gods! Giles Kristian brings his quite stunning Viking saga to a fittingly violent and bitter conclusion. If you liked the previous books there is little to fear in terms of disappointment here. Possibly it does stretch realism a bit with Sigurd's latest set of adventures but everything that is good about the earlier installments is present again in spades.

It all builds to a real crescendo as Sigurd closes in on his heart's desire of Vengeance against the Oathbreaker. This is a fine series for anyone who likes the genre and I was particularly delighted that Kristian gives his full cast of characters a "good" end. As I have mentioned before the female characters are brought to the fore in what is often a totally male-dominated style of tale.

Excellent, what will he come up with next I wonder?

ODIN! ODIN! ODIN!

Simply fantastic stuff! What a journey that was! From the treacherous beginning to the vengeful ending. My limbs ache for I have taken every step, fought beside the pack, made very sure to keep on the right side of Black Floki and fallen in love with Valgard, Runa (and most of the other warrior sisters). More! More!
I've read the books and listened to the Audio books, I can't get enough. Is there any chance of the Raven series being set to audio?

Excellent storytelling, traditionally done.

Superbly written. The story was highly entertaining. It was written to resemble the style of a saga and succeeded in bringing that flavor to a most agreeable book. Unfortunately the narrator has only a single voice and limited talent. His performance was the only disappointment I experienced in what was an otherwise great series.
