Theodore Brun studied Dark Age archaeology at Cambridge. In 2010, he quit his job as an arbitration lawyer in Hong Kong and cycled 10,000 miles across Asia and Europe to his home in Norfolk. A Savage Moon is his fourth novel.
A Savage Moon is a full-blooded and superbly descriptive novel, bringing to vivid life the Byzantine empire and the Viking world. Along with its rich themes of treachery and intrigue, love and sacrifice, loyalty and honour, there is plenty of bloodshed for Viking fans. It is an excellent read, a page-turner of real quality. Raise your drinking horns in a toast! Theodore Brun has earned his place in the mead hall. -- Ben Kane, bestselling author of the Spartacus series A heart pounding mix of action, adventure and historical detail. The prose is riveting and the battle scenes thrilling! -- Peter Gibbons, author of the Blood and Blade trilogy on A Savage Moon A thrilling read filled with dark twists and strange fates -- Donovan Cook, author of the Ormstunga Saga series on A Savage Moon A fever dream of dark lusts and an ancient evil. A Savage Moon drips with passion, betrayal, loyalty and loss. A wonderful book! -- Matthew Harffy, author of the Bernicia Chronicles on A Savage Moon A Savage Moon is vast in scope, but the ending is personal and climactic, a tale of friendship, love, trust and, for one of the characters, renewal, set against a backdrop of almost indescribable savagery. It's sure to appeal to fans of historical fiction and historical fantasy. -- M J Porter, author of Eagle of Mercia, on A Savage Moon Superb. A Burning Sea is another vivid, enthralling read, yet again proving that Theodore Brun is a force to be reckoned with in both historical fiction and historical fantasy. * Giles Kristian on A Burning Sea * Brilliant.

Highly recommended * Eric Schumacher on A Burning Sea * A masterly debut. ... If Bernard Cornwell and George RR Martin had a lovechild, it would look like A Mighty Dawn. I devoured it late into the night, and eagerly await the sequel. * Antonia Senior on A Mighty Dawn * Evocative prose and the brutality of the Viking world, it's all here, woven with a deft touch into a tremendous tale. * Giles Kristian on A Mighty Dawn *
