Goodreads asked Millie Thom:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Millie Thom The idea for 'Shadow of the Raven' started as a tiny seed many years ago when I lived in Wantage, the birthplace of Alfred the Great. Of course the whole story that now unfolds (and is still unfolding as I finish off the last few chapters of Book 2, 'Pit of Vipers') developed much more recently. Eadwulf of Mercia's character arose from my desire to write about the early raids on Mercia during Alfred's childhood.
