Corgi, 2010 - 464 ページ
A Viking adventure packed with battles, blood and gore, Raven is historical fiction at its very best, and marks the debut of an outstanding new talent.
When Norsemen from across the sea burn his village, Osric, a carpenter's apprentice, is taken prisoner by these warriors. Their chief, Sigurd the Lucky, believes the Norns have woven this strange boy's fate with his own, and Osric begins to sense glorious purpose among this fellowship of warriors.
Immersed in the Norsemen's world, Osric proves a natural warrior and forges a blood bond with Sigurd, who renames him Raven. But the Norsemen's world is savage and a young man must become a killer in order to survive. Raven chooses a bloody and dangerous path, accepting the mission of raiding deep into hostile lands to steal a holy book from Coenwolf, King of Mercia.
There he will find more than the Holy Gospels of St. Jerome. He will find Cynethryth, an English girl with a soul to match his own.
