" 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."

Having carved a bloody swathe through central Europe, Sigurd the Lucky's band of Norsemen set their sights on Miklagard, the "Great City" of the East better known known as Constantinople, the wealthy seat of the Byzantine Empire. As his comrades prepare for conquest, seer Raven -- heartbroken over losing the woman he loves -- hopes that fortune and glory will be enough to restore his wounded spirit. Although Odin's Wolves stands on its own, readers who want to start at the very beginning should check out Blood Eye and Sons of Thunder. Those seeking even more Viking action should try Robert Low's Oathsworn novels, beginning with The Whale Road.

cool series, much better than many other viking-themed series I've read.

Great conclusion to a fantastic trilogy. Hope there are more to follow. Author gets a little repetitive in his descriptions, but otherwise a fun flowing story of adventure.
