Waterstones Milton Keynes, supported by Milton Keynes Literary Festival, are delighted to welcome bestselling authors, Giles Kristian and Conn Iggulden, as they join us for the first of our new ‘Bookshop Series’ events. Giles and Conn will be in conversation with award-winning writer, director and audio book narrator, Philip Stevens about their gripping new historical fiction novels, Arthur and Nero.

Arthur is a breathtaking and evocative retelling of King Arthur’s legend, rich in historical detail and adventure, that brings the story of the war leader and warrior thrillingly to life for a new generation of readers.

Nero brims with intrigue, danger and ruthless power games, and is the first instalment in a masterful new trilogy that revolves around Empress Agrippina’s ambitious project to turn her son Nero into the ruler of all Rome.

About Giles Kristian
Giles was inspired to write by family history (he is half Norwegian) and a passion for the fiction of Bernard Cornwell. Set in the Viking world, his bestselling Raven and The Rise of Sigurd trilogies have been acclaimed by his peers, reviewers and readers alike. With his Sunday Times bestseller, Lancelot, Giles plunged into the rich waters of the Arthurian legend. His epic reimagining of our greatest island 'history' continued in Camelot and draws to a breath-taking close with Arthur. Giles lives in Leicestershire.
