My first Manda Scott novel has proven to be an excellent adventure. I'm looking forward to my next foray into the world of Captain Picaut

My first Ben Kane novel and it will not be my last. I now have a year to wait for the next part of this story. Can you tell I'm already looking forward?
This is an excellent novel. Writing stories in to history, using history and historical events, must be some kind of masochism. To bring us a story of this quality is far beyond that. Thanks you Ben, add me to your list of fans.👏👏

Camelot...As never before.

What a story! This one had me hanging on virtually every word. The prose painting pictures in my mind such that, at one stage, I could see the shield wall pushing forward away from me. Also at other stages, heart rending, and so emotional. I found myself chuckling at times but emersed all the time. Another great book, Giles.
Narrator, Phillip Stevens is getting better and better with each story; as he was at a very high level already, this is quite a feat. This particular programme, I believe, is his best so far and the best of all the narrators I have, so far, come across.

John Le Carré at his very best. Beautifully read by Michael Jayston. Had me so entranced I missed my turning from the motorway!

An epic retelling of s story, a myth that we all long to be part of. Giles has opened doors for me, to parts of the tale I have never considered. To put so much in to and to reap such an extraordinary story from a character that is usually left on the sidelines looking in, to me suggests that we have a lot more to come from Mr Kristian. A masterpiece and a very high bar to attack for the next novel.

What an experience. Found myself sitting in my vehicle outside my house not wanting to turn off the engine and thus interrupt the story. FANTASTIC.

BRILLIANT!
Such a tale it must not end there. Has to be at least one volumes worth just to get them back to the lands in the north. Following that at least a series going off to upset the North American indigenous peoples with a Volva to add to the possibilities. Thank You Giles, thank you Audible.

Having the Raven series brought to life by the incomparable Philip Stevens is simply magical. I have been a fan of Giles since the hard back of Blood Eye became available and landed in my lap. I'm loving this journey!
