James and Marc describe this series as a cross between The Hunger Games and Viking mythology. (Please correct me guys!! I’m tired and may have that slightly wrong!!)
Whether that’s right or wrong, that’s certainly true.
This new world they’ve created has yet to give up most of its secrets I think, and I wonder if there are other beings and things yet to be discovered. Some of the ones in this book are not part of your average Viking world, that’s for sure!!
There are laughs in here (the story

If you love Vikings and quests and adventure (or your kidlets do), then this book is for you. Coming in at around 250 pages, it's not all that long but wow does it pack a punch.

Full of questing and intrigue as well as friendship and all around happy feels, it was a quick and easy read. I will say though, there are a few parts where it may be a little scary (there's a spider the size of a cow that's just *shudder*).

Basically if you think Hunger Games, a little Percy Jackson with some Warrior of

I loved this book! I really enjoyed the Hunger Games-esque trials and how different they were. I also thoroughly enjoyed Astrid and her family! I found Astrid to be a really compelling character that I couldn’t help but to root for. It was definitely just Norse enough for me to enjoy, but also different enough to find interesting as opposed to the same story being told again. I am really looking forward to the next novel in the series! I couldn’t put this down and finished it in two sittings. ...more

I loved this book. Astrid is my new fav character. I wasn’t crying at the end, you were crying. Highly recommend for readers of fantasy, mythology and Vikings.

Please tell me book 2 is coming out soon!

Growing up I was always a bit of a geek, in particular my love of comics and horror movies, something that has stayed with me well into my “mature years”.
