Raven - Blood Eye: outline
9th Century England.
For two years Osric has lived a simple life in the small village of Abbotsend on England’s south coast, though he is feared and shunned for his mysterious past and blood-red eye.
But when Vikings from across the sea plunder and burn the village, they believe this young man is favoured, or perhaps even cursed by Odin the chief of their gods. Because of this the Norsemen’s leader Jarl Sigurd spares Osric’s life, taking him and his carpenter foster father Ealhstan aboard their dragon-prowed ships as prisoners.
At first Osric hates this band of brothers and all they stand for, yet he cannot deny their courage and honor. Moreover, he begins to understand what drives these fierce men to risk their lives so far from their homeland. For when a man breathes his last breath, what can he leave behind that is more important than his reputation? For Osric, a young man with no memory, the prospect of creating his own legacy shines like a treasure hoard.
Now immersed in the Vikings’ world and driven by their lust for adventure, Osric proves a natural warrior and forges a blood bond with Sigurd, who renames him Raven - for ravens are the messengers of Odin. But they are also known to feed upon the dead and there are those amongst the Norsemen who still believe the young man’s presence is an ill-omen, a foreshadow of doom. Sure enough, the Norsemen’s world is a savage one, where loyalty is often repaid in blood and young Raven must become a killer to survive.
When the Fellowship faces annihilation at the hands of the ambitious and duplicitous Earl Ealdred of Wessex, Raven chooses a bloody and dangerous path, accepting the mission of raiding deep into hostile lands to steal a holy book written in the blood of Christ. There, in Coenwulf’s Kingdom of Mercia, Raven will find much more than the Holy Gospel book of St Jerome. He will find Cynethryth, an English girl with a soul to match his own. And he will find betrayal at the hands of cruel men, some of whom he regarded as friends.
Journey into an intriguing world of bloody battles, honor and the hunt for the ultimate prize – everlasting fame.
