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 other chapter early on to cover Sissel, Hanne, and James (a secondary character that wasn't as developed in the end as I would have liked). Besides all of these things, this ended up being a great follow up to the first book. The action is there and I found myself comparing it to the hit Outlander at the end. This idea of romance, set in a whirlwind adventurous/rugged setting, with magic, seems to fit that bill.

This is completely appropriate for grades 7 and up. There is some violence, but nothing worse than in other science fiction/fantasy tales. Also, there is no sexual content-just some kissing (and that is sporadic). There is little to no language (only a random "goddammit" throughout). Highly recommend.
