Giles Kristian


USA flag (b.1975)

Family history (he is half Norwegian) and his storytelling hero, Bernard Cornwell, inspired Giles Kristian to write his first historical novels, the acclaimed and bestselling Raven Viking trilogy Blood Eye, Sons of Thunder and Odin's Wolves. For his next series, he drew on a long-held fascination with the English Civil War. The Bleeding Land and Brother's Fury follow the fortunes of a divided family against the complex and brutal backcloth of a conflict that tore this country apart and ended with the killing of a king.

S W Perry
"Beautiful writing."

Kings of a Dead World (2021)
Jamie Mollart
"Kings of a Dead World intrigued me with its title and had me on page one. Mollart's dystopian vision is as disturbing as it is brilliant."

Legion (2019)
(Raven and the Eagle, book 1)
Geraint Jones
"Every page is drenched with the soldiers experience."
