About the Author:
This novel takes the reader far back into history – to the time of what we now know as the Vikings as they raided the coastal villages of England. One day young orphan Osric is fishing for mackerel for his master’s breakfast and he sees dragons coming out of the fog. He is suddenly surrounded by fierce men and realizes that he will soon be dead. But what really boggles his mind is his ability to understand what they are saying – Osric only knows that he was found as a baby and the village carpenter took him in.
The men swear they are there to trade, not make war and so he brings them back to his village where after a night of relative peace the village priest tries to poison the leader and Osric stops the act. All hell breaks loose after that and Osric finds himself taken by the foreigners – along with his master. So begins Osric’s true life as he finds his past and his future.
This was a thrilling read once Osric found his new life as Raven. Viking tales are always harsh, bloody and full of war and this is no exception. They were hard men living in hard times and they really weren’t very nice men at that. But it is a fascinating time in history and one that draws me. Mr. Kristian has created a fascinated character in Osric/Raven and I look forward to following his tale into the next books. The writing is fast paced and while not as deeply historical as other books I have read from this period I did enjoy my time in Raven’s world – despite the blood and gore. You can’t be a sissy and hang with the Vikings.
