Blood Eye by Giles Kristian, would not be complete unless my review of it in was brought to the table too. Bernard Cornwell handles both the “torn identity” admittedly, it’s a useful narrative in to the world and language issue better in his Viking stories. Have one to sell?

As I see it, anyway. El Ojo de Raven. Select a valid country. Quotes from Blood Eye.

It began with the betrayal of a lord by a king. I had ragen read a book called Raven: A deaf, mute carpenter takes him on as an apprentice and shows him the kindness of acceptance. Secondly, global amnesia is dd hokiest plot device in the world when we meet the protagonist he’s living in an English village and can’t remember anything from before a couple of years ago.

So why did it not click with me in ? I’ve already started the next book, and have added just about everything Giles Kristian has written to my to-read list. I always felt that when I read this book in October it was a case of wrong time, wrong place.

I’ve had this lying around for aged and fancied something Norse.

I’ll certainly read the follow up and see if the characters improve. He takes to the life as the proverbial duck to water. See 2 questions about Blood Eye…. Osric, our stalwart hero, who is not always so heroic, is living in the coastal English village of Abbotsend when the Viking ships arrive. Cornwell’s The Last Kingdom, but I guess it can’t be helped. I’ve got 3 viking sagas sat in my bookshelves, all unread, because I obsess over the Roman era and I have trouble with Viking culture, because I’ve always thought they didn’t have one.

I can’t understand the higher ratings of this piece of crap.

Buy it now – Add to Watch list Added to fe Watch list. I bought it, in all fairness, because I’d spoken to Giles on twitter – he’s a really nice fella – and it had a cool cover. Nov 10, Lisa Yarde rated it it was amazing. There are re characters and the viking setting was fantastic. With this series kirstian did something i have never done before i waited until all 3 books were out before starting them and read them back to back, so by the end of book three i felt part Viking, I felt exhausted, and i had felt the kindred spirit of the crew, the losses, the pain and the loves, such is the power of Giles Kristians writing.
