More About the Author


Winner of the Roald Dahl 2012 Funny Prize!

Here's the little author biography for my latest series, Dark Lord: the Teenage Years, and Dark Lord: A Fiend in Need:

'Jamie Thomson is the minion and slave of the Dark Lord, Dirk Lloyd. Jamie has been writing books, comics and computer games for his Dark Master for many years now. He lives in the dungeons below his Master's Iron Tower, chained to a desk, where he spends every day writing for his overlord. Or else.'

The Dark Lord series is a comedic fantasy about a Dark Lord trapped in the body of a human boy here in modern day earth. Bit like my own life, really. The first book, Dark Lord: the Teenage Years has won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2012, which is awesomely cool!

I bought Corvus for my nephew and kept it for myself. It's a cracking read, great fun and adventure packed but sophisticated enough to keep even the more advanced young reader fully engaged and (dare I say it) educated. Highly recommended and I look forward to keeping up with Corvus' further adventures.

p.s. I got my nephew his own copy.

Wonderful stuff! Stirring adventures with the mighty (and often confused) Viking warrior Corvus Gunnarson as he carves his way through the land of the South Saxons. Corvus is a powerfully conceived, well-characterised and sympathetic hero, the secondary characters are vividly drawn, and - for once! - we've got a strong, well-plotted and gripping story that keeps you turning the pages and leaves you panting for the sequel(s). More, more, more!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By T. Barrie on 20 July 2010
Format: Paperback
Terrifying sea monsters and blood-crazed hordes of Viking warriors are just a few of the foes faced by the eponymous hero of this gripping saga of revenge. Younger readers, including those previously reluctant to read, will soon eagerly lose themselves with Corvus as he journeys through Iron Age England in hot pursuit of the brutal Wulfric Cold-blood, murderer of Corvus' parents and abductor of his sisters.

A well-written and exciting book which is nonetheless easily accessible, this is a must-buy for anyone interested in history, action and adventure. Combining fantastical elements with historic fact, it's as much an informative portrayal of Viking life and customs as it is an epic and thrilling tale. Readers will no doubt be left hungry for the second installment, having most likely read the first cover to cover as fast as they can turn the pages.

In short, this book is a must for those looking for a great story to sink their teeth into and a setting in which to immerse themselves for hours.

Format: Paperback
This is a real page-turner- and huge fun. Its the story of Corvus Gunnarson, a Viking as he seeks revenge for his murdered parents and to release his captured sisters in Dark Ages Britain. Corvus is handy with an axe (or even two)- and fans of battle scenes won't be disappointed. Looking forward to the sequel!

Format: Paperback
This is a great, gutsy adventure in the Robert E Howard tradition. The writing is simple enough for younger readers to follow, but grown-ups will enjoy it too for the dry (very Viking) humour, spectacular action scenes, and the dark and twisty plot. I particularly like the way "fantasy" elements are handled, being added with a light touch that makes them part of the Viking worldview rather than grafted on from modern videogame-style monsters. The book deserves much wider distribution than it has had so far, and I would like to see more adventures starring Corvus.
