About this product
- DescriptionNorway, AD 785. A wild place, a place of blood, a place where the gods must be favoured . . . Sigurd Haraldarson and his oathsworn band are winning fame and reputation. But to confront his hated enemy - the oath-breaker and betrayer King Gorm - they must win riches too. When a daring raid goes wrong, Sigurd finds himself a prisoner of the powerful Jarl Guthrum. Bound like a slave, he is taken to the sacred temple at Ubsola to face the sacrificial knife. But here Sigurd discovers a potent relic: Gungnir, a great spear that would give him the power to assemble a host strong eugh to challenge King Gorm, and avenge the betrayal of his father and the murder of his family. The roar of Odin and the wild hunt will be as thing compared to Sigurd's rage, for he and his warriors will be borne on the wings of the storm . . . With Wings of the Storm, one of our finest young historical velists brings his extraordinary Viking saga - an adventure to that is sure to satisfy any 'Game of Thrones' fan - to a triumphant close.
- Author BiographyFamily history (he is half Norwegian) 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. A long-held fascination with the English Civil War then led him to chart the fortunes of a family divided by that brutal conflict in The Bleeding Land and Brothers' Fury before co-writing Wilbur Smith's No.1 bestseller, Golden Lion. In his recent novels - God of Vengeance (a Times Book of the Year), Winter's Fire and now Wings of the Storm - he returned to the Viking world to tell the story of the rise of Sigurd Haraldarson and his celebrated fictional fellowship. Giles Kristian lives in Leicestershire.
