MORE ABOUT PETER GIBBONS

Historical Fiction and Fantasy Author

My first series of books, The Viking Blood and Saga, is set at the heart of the Viking Age. The first novel, Viking Blood and Blade is set amidst the conquest of Northumbria and East Anglia by the Viking Great Heathen Army in 865 AD.

That was a crucial time in the formation and history of what would become England, and the Vikings led by Ivar the Boneless would go on to carve out the Danelaw and rule a large swathe of England for years to come. In the book, we follow Hundr who is a young warrior trying to make his way in the brutal world of the Viking warrior.

He takes part in battles such as the siege of York, and comes up against the fearsome Ivar in his quest to survive.

Axes for Valhalla shifts to the shores of Ireland where Hundr joins a war for Viking Age Dublin, facing off against a ferocious Norseman Eystein of the Longaxe, and Halvdan Ragnarsson, the son of Ragnar Lothbrok and brother of Ivar the Boneless. This book is packed with battles and treachery and sees Hundr’s skill and mettle tested to its limits.

King of War moves north as Hundr joins King Harald Fairhair in his war to become the first king of all Norway. Hundr fights for Harald, and is thrown into the melting pot of war which ravages the VIking world. Famous characters such as Rollo, and Bjorn Ironside battle for supremacy in an epic tale filled with adventure.

My latest series published by Boldwood Books kicks off with Warrior & Protector. This first book in the Saxon Warrior series is set one hundred years after the events in Viking Blood and Blade. We follow Beornoth, a Saxon Thegn and warrior, in his battle against Viking invaders. It is a tale of war, redemption, vengeance and the maelstrom of the Anglo Saxon kingdom during the reign of Ethelred the Unready.
