Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an eARC of this title for review.

I read Berserker last year and was so excited to see that Laybourne was going to continue the series. This story focuses mainly on Sissel and her discovery of being a Ransacker (this is the Nyette gift of finding and manipulating metals). The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that it started a bit slow, and even though it was mainly focused on Sissel, the storylines also diverged every

I read this ARC via NetGalley. This is a very unique YA series. I loved how the first book, Beserker, infused Norse mythology and Norwegian culture into a family story of settlement in the US, 1880’s.

This was a 3.5 book for me. The book just started out a bit slow for me. It did pick up and I ended up enjoying it by the end, but it took a while to get there. I also was not a fan of the main character, personally so I think that played a part of my lower rating. The author builds a great world and has great character development. I enjoyed the writing style as well.
