Swashbuckling battles from the Vikings to the Romans, Cromwell & the Civil War, myths of ancient Egypt, medieval crime, heroic tales from the First and Second World War, and a few juicy bodice rippers too...
Having Viking ancestors himself, Giles Kristian believes that the story of Raven has always been in his blood - waiting, like the Norsemen, for the right time to burst upon the world.
Inspired by both his family history and his storytelling heroes, Bernard Cornwell and Conn Iggulden, Giles began writing a thrilling tale of an English boy's coming of age amongst a band of marauding warriors from across the grey sea.
Giles currently lives in Leicestershire where he writes full-time, though he enjoys nothing better than working in his family cottage that overlooks the mist-shrouded Norwegian fjords.
