Publisher's Summary

Fighting in Sweden for an ambitious warlord, Sigurd Haraldarson and his small but loyal band of oath-sworn warriors are winning fame and reputation. But Sigurd knows that to take on his hated enemy, the oath breaker King Gorm - the man who betrayed his father, a man Sigurd has vowed to kill - he must earn riches enough to build an army.

Many believe Sigurd to be Óðin-favoured, but his exploits have drawn the eye of another god, too: Loki the Trickster. And when a daring assassination attempt goes wrong, Sigurd finds himself a prisoner of the powerful Jarl Guthrum. Bound like a slave, his luck having seemingly deserted him, Sigurd is taken to the sacred temple at Ubsola, a place where the blood of human sacrifice flows to appease the gods.

It is at Ubsola that Sigurd will face the sacrificial knife. And it is here that he will find a powerful relic, the great spear that was said to have once belonged to Óðin himself.

With such a spear in his possession, Sigurd might now assemble a host strong enough to challenge King Gorm and wreak the revenge he craves. For, like Óðin, Sigurd will be the Wild Huntsman tearing through the sky on his fearsome steed, and the rage of his passing will be the sound of wings of the storm.

With Wings of the Storm, one of our finest young historical novelists brings his extraordinary Viking saga - an adventure that is sure to satisfy any Game of Thrones fan - to a triumphant close.

    "ODIN! ODIN! ODIN!"

    Simply fantastic stuff! What a journey that was! From the treacherous beginning to the vengeful ending. My limbs ache for I have taken every step, fought beside the pack, made very sure to keep on the right side of Black Floki and fallen in love with Valgard, Runa (and most of the other warrior sisters). More! More!
    I've read the books and listened to the Audio books, I can't get enough. Is there any chance of the Raven series being set to audio?

    "Predictable and poorly written"

    A dull predictable story basically revenge by numbers. No twists no surprises no tension or excitement.
    One dimensional characters with no development with the main protagonist being nothing but boring.
    The writing is nothing but poor and the description of battles is confusing.

    "Finally it is over, my addiction can end."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. It is addictive. So are cigarettes. Not all addictions are worthwhile.


    Any additional comments?

    You know the story by now. Come on Sigurd bathe me in your enemies blood one last time!

    "Great story"

    I was looking desperately trying to find a series of books I could listen to and randomly picked these..... result.
    He describes the events as though you visualise them happening before you.
    Secretly hoping that in a past life you were brave enough to have stood in a shield wall.
    Great books highly recommend from someone who is always looking for a good story to listen to !

    "Great finale"

    Have read all three of the Rise of Sigurd books, all entertaining. The series bears comparison with Robert Low's viking stories.

    Recommended.

    "More of the same really - which isn't a bad thing!"

    If you liked the other books, you'll like this one. It does drag a bit,almost as if they padded the trilogy out to four books to squeeze a bit more money out of the concept. But perhaps I'm too cynical.

    "Good Storytelling"

    Giles Kristian tells a good story .. The dialogue is great and the battle scenes are exciting .. This could have had a 5 star but I feel the main character Sigurd gets lucky too often and doesn't have enough redeeming moments .. he seems to go from blunder to blunder

    But that's me being picky .. very well written and a great story

    Can't wait for the next Giles Kristian release

    "Superb Finale"

    Outstanding conclusion to the trilogy. I was mesmerized by the story, characters and of course the battle scenes and their aftermaths. If you ever wanted to really get the feel for being a Norse warrior in Viking times, this is the book for you. Imagery in language is outstanding. Pacing also superb. Narration gets full marks also. A lot of talent on display here all the way around. If it sounds like I'm gushing, it is only because I am. I read a ton of historical fiction and it takes a lot to impress me. This one obviously did.

    "Five Stars!!!!!"

    This is by far my favorite and best audiobook series I have ever listened to!! I could also listen to the narrator (Philip Stevens) for ages. He does a phenomenal job and really brings the rise of Sigurd to life. I hope Philip Stevens will narrate other works in the future!!

    "In good company with Cornwell"

    I've listened to all three Sigurd sequels and have been equally impressed by Giles Kristian, keeping me guessing as to the fate the gods have in store for Sigurd and his friends. It's a fun series. If you like Bernard Cornwell's Saxon tales, you should probably like this, too.

    "SO FREAKING GOOD!"

    Easily the best book in this series and one that i would recommend on its own. The writing is superb and the story line is fantastic. The narrator did an outstanding job too! Just an overall damn good book.

    It helps if you have read the other two and are invested in the characters a little more than just picking up this as a single book.

    I did want a little more out of one of the characters, but you can't have everything.

    Seriously, DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK.

    "Exciting Series"
    Where does Wings of the Storm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved the Rise of Sigurd series. All three books were page turners and the books were hard to put down. The narrator did an excellent job of reading the text, changing his voice for each character so that it was easy to forget it was the same narrator doing all the voices.
