Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Odin's Wolves by Giles Kristian, read by Philip Stevens.

We lusted for an even greater prize: one that can never be lost or stolen or burnt....

Raven and his fellow Vikings have suffered. Good men have died. Hard-won treasure has been lost. But for these Norsemen, there is something more precious than gold or silver, and that is fame - for this is what a warrior leaves behind when he has breathed his last.

And so the brotherhood sail for Constantinople, the city they call Miklagard. There, it is rumoured, both riches and glory are to be found, but the journey takes them through unknown and dangerous waters - from the wind-whipped marshes of the Camargue to the treachery and faded glory of a once-mighty Rome.

For Raven and the Wolfpack there is a high price to pay for the fame they seek. Miklagard's streets may seem paved with gold, but they also run with blood....

A brilliant, brutal new chapter in the story of Raven, this is historical fiction at its most authentic and exciting.

Great series.

I really enjoyed it. Im hoping that there is more to the series to come. There is something i feel hanging in the air that needs to be addressed in a future book. I have a sneaking suspicion that we will find out that the reason Raven and Sigurd have such a strong bond is that he is in fact the child Sigurd was supposed to have killed and that he didnt have the heart to do it but told no one. Id almost put money on this being in the next book. Cant wait to find out.

The most 'tedious' saga I've heard/read.

The series started off well with the backdrop of a frightened town set upon by roaming, silver lusting wolves. A boy who knew nothing of his past except that he spoke Norse, but ultimately ended in a yawn fest. Whether it be the unfulfilled story of Raven and his tedious and worst of all boring relationship with a Wessex woman that spanned 3 books (yes, we get our first pining cucked Viking) or the directionless leadership of a supposed great Jarl, who seemed to be only good for slowly but surely getting his oathsmen killed, with suicidal schemes far beyond his crews resources to achieve! It ended up being very disappointing and repetitive. Row here, die there, sometimes fill your seachest. Rinse and repeat... Sigurds saga is a far superior work, where Kristian put a lot more thought into his characters and their motivations, whilst getting them from A to B. Great performance from Steven's again though. Only reason I finished the series.

Very entertaining.

I've read this last trilogy, as I have the first set Sigurd trilogy God of Vengeance : The rise of Sigurd. I would definitely recommend for good reads. Although I found the last two, Raven 2: sons of thunder and this book very well told & read by Philip Stevens. I have put them in my pile of "to read again" along side Matthew Harffy , David Gemmell, Conn Iggulden & Bernard Cornwell

should have been a book not a series

After the last installment of the series I feel, like I did after the second, that this should have been a single book. The narrow way of the first person narrative is written gives the story momentum. But this fokus comes at the price of depth. To make the books long enough to be stand alone parts, they have to many filler parts. yes the series have 3 distinkt goals but Ravens journey could have been destiled into one epic and be much better for it. That aside the main story is enjoyable but I will definitely wait for the omnibus of the next triology

redeemed

Ahh thankyou back to the excellence of writing in book 1, as the fellowship heads to Constantinople highs and lows abound and the only sure thing is raven survives. fights with moors in Spain ,a happy winter with 29 harem girls after a mugging at prayer ends in despair, ruined Rome still enthralls but lose a friend, then on to their goal to replace a deposed emperor with a final battle depleting the crews further, and again told brilliantly by Philip Stevens. and then the end of the trilogy? loose ends and more exploits to come? let's hope so please.

odins wolves. Raven

this book gives a fantastic ending to Sigards tale. The three book tale with Raven weeves a story that is engrossing and exciting.
