I absolutely loved this book! I was thirteen when my friend lent me the series and I read all five book in a week and a half! :) I then got my Mum, Dad, older brother and 96 year old Grandma to read them. They liked them too. Just shows its a good series for a WIDE variety of ages! LOL :) But it aimed at pre-teens and teenagers. Full of fascinating history about Ireland, Norway, Iceland, Greenland and North America around the turn of the Millennium in 1000 AD. Awesome books!
This is the second book in this series and it proves to be just as exciting and full of adventure as the first. The twists and turns in the story will keep readers wanting to turn the page. The content is distinctly Christian with a story line that proves quite entertaining. The decisions that the main character makes will challenge your reader to consider what true sacrifice and love is.

We have been reading through this series. The first one was better than this one, though this one wasn't bad. There are parts of the story that are weak, such as God speaking directly to the main character and a strange light from heaven. The best part of this book is the courage the girl shows and how God ultimately thwarts her plans. We all believe we know what God wants for us. (Spoiler Alert) Bree O Toole thinks God wants her to escape from the Vikings, but that is not his plan. The disappoi ...more
More layers to the story are added as Bree finds herself as a slave on her way to another country. How will she survive and how can she escape? I really enjoyed this second book in the series. I especially like Bree and her strength in her belief in God. Her beliefs are what get her through which is so true in life. I really enjoy this series.
Just as good as the first, except...the main a complete IDIOT.
One of my sons wants to learn more about Vikings so I ordered this series on a whim. Thus far I have really liked it. The characters are well-developed and strong. The action is not overwhelming or too intense. The Christian faith of the main characters helps to teach some great lessons that I'd like my boys to learn.

Overall a fun series and one I would readily allow my children to read (or read to them).
This is the second book in the series and my son and I have read them as a read aloud. It is a fantastic series. The characters really draw you in and now I have to order the third book to find out what happens next. Very strong emphasis on faith and trusting in God during difficult times.
Other than the fact that God talks to Bree in her head (just one step away from merely thinking of appropriate Bible verses), this only improves from the first.

I continue to appreciate the lack of violence.
Lots of people say they didn't like this one but I really liked it. I thought it was good and exciting, oh and gripping when Mikkel is trying to find them and the girls are trying to get away. Very cool!

I pre-read this book for my son's Viking unit study. This book kept our interst with the adventure while also teaching that God's plans are often different than our plans.
As I think I mentioned in my review of the first book, there's no way we could put that one down and not finish this series. The kids and I really enjoyed this series!!
Jenna Greene
I loved this book! I've read this one and the first one and it is definitely the best series ever. I cannot wait to read the rest of them!:-)
I liked this book but it doesn't stand alone. If you haven't read the first one, you will not get as much from book 2.
My kids and I are loving reading these books out loud together. The story is engaging.
