An author’s work is never done and authenticity in this book trailer is key. Odin’s Wolves, the final chapter in the present volume of the Raven Saga, is out on the 14th April and Giles Kristian will go to any lengths to make his book trailer authentic and unique.

If that means running around in a field with a sharp axe and creating realistic injuries with weed sprayer pumps, several metres of tubing, gaffer tape and lots of blood then so be it! We can’t wait to see the end result!
