About Giles:

Giles has led a varied life to say the least. During the 90s he was lead singer of pop group Upside Down, achieving four top twenty hit records, performing twice on Top of the Pops, and singing at such venues as the Royal Albert Hall, N.E.C. and Wembley Arena. As a singer songwriter he lived and toured for two years in Europe and has made music videos all over the world, from Prague, Miami, Mexico, and the Swiss Alps, to Bognor Regis! To fund his writing habit he has worked as a model, appearing in TV commercials and ads for the likes of Walls Ice Cream (he was the Magnum Man) Canon cameras and two brands of lager! He has been an advertising copywriter and lived for two and a half years in New York where he wrote copy for movie marketing company Empire Design but mainly worked on his first novel.

In 2008 Giles signed a publishing deal with Transworld and February 2009 saw the release of Raven: Blood Eye, the first in a three-part historical adventure series. This debut made the bestseller lists and the series has achieved critical acclaim including a glowing accolade from Giles’ favourite author, Bernard Cornwell. The second in the trilogy, Sons of Thunder, was released in hardback in 2010 and will be published in paperback in April this year along with the third book, Odin’s Wolves.

Meanwhile, Giles has signed with Transworld for a new series, this one set against the backdrop of the English Civil War. He is currently writing the first of these novels.

About this Book:

In a thrilling adventure of brotherhood, warfare, and treachery, Giles Kristian takes us into ninth-century England, a world of darkness, epic conflict, and an unforgiving God served by powerful priests. On ships shaped like dragons, bristling with oars and armor, Jarl Sigurd and his fierce Norsemen have come in search of riches. And riches they are promised, by an English ruler who sends Sigurd and his wolves to steal a holy manuscript from another kingdom. Osric, an orphan boy, sees beyond the terror of these warriors, and somehow knows the heathens’ tongue. Renamed Raven, rechristened in blood, he will join them. They are his people. And they will be his fate.

    It would be very hard but I think I’d have to be a farmer of some sort or I’d starve.

    I would do it by siding with the Vikings, they were always more my style anyway. :)

    thanks for a great post and giveaway! Congrats to Giles on the new release! Ummm… I don’t think that I’d do very well. I’d probably end up as someone’s slave :(

    You would have to have some skills to survive. Someone in my family tree must have done it. Thank you for a chance to win a copy, I’m adding another book to my wish list.

    Oh. My. I’m super intrigued!! This book / series sounds great! So….what would I have done to survive the 9th century…..I would’ve pretended to be a boy! Plain and simple. I don’t think women fared so well back in those days… :|
