In the tradition of Bernard Cornwell, Giles Kristian, author of the bestselling Viking adventure Raven: Blood Eye begins an epic new drama set against the tumultuous and bloody backdrop of the civil war that tore England apart...
Family history and his storytelling hero, Bernard Cornwell, inspired Giles Kristian to write his first novels, the acclaimed Raven Viking series. He's long been fascinated by the English Civil War - from absorbing the vibrant illustrations in school text books to appreciating the cold efficiency of Cromwell's New Model Army, admiring the flair of the Cavaliers and revelling in the romance of the doomed Royalist cause and it is this complex and brutal conflict that provides the backcloth to his new historical series, The Bleeding Land. Giles lives in Leicestershire. To find out more, visit www.gileskristian.com
