I liked this book much better than the first two. It felt a little more complete, whereas the first two were kind of "introductory" feeling. The characters' growth in this one was good (and not all about anger). I especially liked Bree and Grandmother. That added a nice touch to the story.

The comparison of the one true God with the Vikings' gods is intriguing. It does not go in depth with pagan religions, but mentions some of the differences, always acknowledging Jesus Christ as the true God.

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 third book in the series. This story continues be a page turner but it the story wraps up two of the main characters making you curious about what will happen to the last one.
Again, distinctly Christian, readers will be challenged in areas of contentment and the value of family. It could be read by itself but I highly recommend starting with book 1 so you can get the full enjoyment.

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 third book in the series and the one I liked the least. The plot was still good. However, now the author has essentially eliminated all the bad people by making them become good through the kindness of the main character. When Christian authors do this it drives me crazy. It removes all narrative tension. We will read the last two, but hopefully she brings in some bad guys to create real conflict.

This is an amazing book. The Viking Quest series is a christian nonforgettable series. I was sad when I read the last one. Now I wish there were more books.
Wow wow wow awesome series could not get any better. Too bad there is not a movie series about this. It would be great. Overall I think this is a series that everyone should read. Thank you Lois, I love these!

" I was SO addicted to these book series during our trip to Texas. I couldn't put them down, and once i almost got car sick form reading so much on the road! So here is some advise if you are going to start these book series, don't start them on the road! :)"

I pre-read this book for my son's Viking unit study. I like the message of honoring one's word regardless of circumstances set agains the back drop of slave life in Norway. The author tastefully reminds the readers the Vikings aquisition of slaves during the raids, and the life of a slave.

Bree is now in Norway and thinks that her sister might be here too. She too was taken captive and made a slave. Can she still trust in God to help her? Will she ever be home again? Will she ever see her family again? Can she trust Mikkel? The more books I read the more I have enjoyed the series.

Briana O'Toole has finally arrived at Mikkel's home. . . . and there is someone there waiting for her that she thought she would never see again. When her brother arrives with ransom money will they all be able to escape the Vikings?

Danger, faith and love collide in this intriguing story.

Great series for adolescent readers. I love the way the author has brought together a fascinating storyline and a powerful message about God's never failing love.

I don't really understand Bree's hatred for Mikkel, but I've never been kidnapped and kept as a slave, so my lack of understanding means nothing.
I see why this series is so loved by my friends.

I think this was the book we were half-way through before we moved (we moved the summer before 6th grade). I hope to finish it...eventually!
