Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Raven: Blood Eye by Giles Kristian, read by Philip Stevens.

The first book in a thrilling Viking trilogy that launched the career of acclaimed historical novelist Giles Kristian - who's now confronting the tumult and devastation of the English Civil War in The Bleeding Land.

For two years Osric has lived a simple life, though he is feared and shunned for his mysterious past and blood-red eye. When raiders from across the sea ransack his village, Osric finds himself taken prisoner by their chief, Sigurd the Lucky.

Immersed in the Norsemen's world and driven by their lust for adventure, Osric proves a natural warrior and forges a deep bond with Sigurd, who renames him Raven. But the Norsemen's world is a savage one, where loyalty is often repaid in blood and a young man must become a killer to survive....

RAVEN (at last)

Well that was worth the wait! What a book, what a story! Hardback, paperback, Kindle and now Audible edition; have them all, never without access to Raven, the book that brought me back to reading. Brilliant!

Let down by narrator

Quite a well written storyline, although at times it was a bit tricky to keep abreast of it. No reflection on the writer; it was the narration that was problematic. From the outset I realised this was going to be an issue. I had to re-start at least 3 times to be able to discern what was said at the introduction.

The narrator’s voice tended to drop to a very low timbre at the end of sentences, so you could not hear what he’d actually said. This occurred so often that it affected my comprehension in parts. I persevered to the end though to find much later on it improved a bit.

Regret having to give it 3 stars on the basis of poor narration!

Excellent

Thoroughly recommended. Right mix of story and action.
The characters have life and catch the interest in future exploits

Epic doesn't cut it

I listened to the Sigurd trilogy before these as they were available before the raven trilogy and it made me appreciate this more as a result!
