The Wolf and the Raven by Steven McKay

Another new review of The Wolf and the Raven!

Historical Fiction reviews


The Lancastrian revolt is over.  Those who opposed the King are now outlaws and are being pursued with a vengeance.  This is especially true for Robin Hood and his men as they are once more wolf’s heads high on the list of the King’s main huntsman, Sir Guy Gisbourne; The Raven.  In this, the second volume in Steven McKay’s series on the famed outlaw, the author has crafted a tale of intrigue, bravery and betrayal.  He has also continued the development of his characters, the old and the new.  In particular his portrayals of Little John and Will Scarlet have gone up a notch as they help Robin overcome some very nasty treatment at the hands of Sir Guy; one of the new characters who the author has imbued with a streak of super-villain like viciousness.

Steven A McKay: The Wolf and the Raven (Review)

The first review of The Wolf and the Raven is in!





My second book, The Wolf and the Raven will be released on April 7th, get your pre-order in now and come meet me at the London Book Fair between April 8-10!

I was born in 1977, near Glasgow in Scotland. I live in Old Kilpatrick with my wife and two young children. After obtaining my Bachelor of Arts degree I decided to follow my life-long ambition and write a novel.

Bernard Cornwell’s King Arthur series was my biggest influence in writing “Wolf’s Head”, but I’ve also really enjoyed recent books by guys like Ben Kane, Glyn Iliffe, Douglas Jackson and Simon Scarrow.

I play lead/acoustic guitars (and occasional bass) in a heavy metal band when we can find the time to meet up.

Okay, I can now announce one of the things I’ve been hinting at for the past couple of weeks! I will be attending the London Book Fair, at Earl’s Court in London, as part of the Amazon stand. 
The Wolf and the Raven will be released in time for it and I will be taking part in a panel each day, with two other self-published authors, talking about our experiences with the Kindle Direct Publishing and Createspace platforms. 
If anyone is nearby, on April 8-10, and would like to pop in for a signed copy of the new book (or indeed, “Wolf’s Head”) come in and see me!
As you can probably imagine, this is really a dream for me – a once in a lifetime chance. The LBF is apparently the second biggest book fair in the world, and Amazon, well – MASSIVE doesn’t begin to describe the opportunity!
Stay tuned, because there’s more to come! 🙂
