Nancy Farmer, Fantasy

Jack is the acceptable exceptional character in this viking adventure novel that is deeply grounded in Norse mythology. Jack apprentices to the village Bard, but, after his village attacked by a barrage of Beserkers, Jack awakes to find himself and his sister, Lucy, aboard a beserker ship. After Jack misuses his recently learned magical powers, Lucy is taken from him. Jack and his companions embark on a voyage to save her. This story is both a coming of age novel as Jack learns his powers and tests them against more and more difficult challenges. He returns to village much changed. This is well-researched fantasy novel with a sequel. It would appeal to both genders, but it requires a reader with stamina, because the book more lengthy than a typical young adult novel.
