churchlibrarylady5 Stars Out Of 5Love this series for our home & church library!February 11, 2016churchlibraryladyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was purchased for our church library. We have lots of books for children, but I am trying to expand our offerings for youth, both fiction and nonfiction. This is an exciting fictional book full of adventure from the first chapter. It would appeal to both sexes from upper elementary upward because it switches between the story lines of male and female siblings who are both captured but separated. As an adult, it kept me reading and reminded me of trips to Ireland and Norway! It felt natural the way the book highlighted Christian faith by contrasting the beliefs of the Viking captors with their Irish, Christian captives. The second book in the series is just as good. I will probably order the rest of the series for our library and will encourage my own middle school and upper elementary kids to read these!
SnapplesCharlotte, NCAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Outstanding and highly God honoringJanuary 4, 2016SnapplesCharlotte, NCAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This books is well written and has a sophistication to the story not found in all children's or teen's books. My kids loved the historical context and perspective of a male and a female hero/heroine/role models. My husband and I shared the read aloud to our children and I'm interested in reading through myself. My 8 year old shared in some of the reading very briefly and completed a "book response" assignment for school earning a solid grade so it really kept his interest and enthusiasm to follow through in reading and in thought. My husband was extremely impressed and asked me to purchase the next in the series. I loved the concepts of standing strong in faith even in adversity, honoring and trusting God as well as overall Christian values worked into the story! Outstanding!

narrow4lifeRolla, MOAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Favorite Family Read AloudDecember 26, 2014narrow4lifeRolla, MOAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This series is exceptional! We borrowed it from a friend and just had to purchase our own set. We read these as a read aloud while studying the Vikings in our home-school. What a great historical fiction series that is God honoring! None of us ever wanted to stop reading. It was very hard to put them down and move on to other things. The relationship between the brother and sister is very sweet and lots of great character traits to explore throughout the series. Highly recommended! You will want to read them in order and of course read them all!
TammyRavenna, MIAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Couldn't put it down!December 3, 2013TammyRavenna, MIAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I read aloud the whole series to my son and daughter (11 & 9) and they couldn't get enough! This is a wonderful series for boys or girls, adult and young. I enjoyed it as much as they did. It was not only exciting and suspenseful, but a great example on how to depend on the Lord and to find joy in all things! This is a must read!!
Q: Any hero??? I have boys, so I'm looking for appropriate literature for them. Bree saves the young viking captain, but does Devon do anything heroic? Is Devon a strong masculine character even for a boy? Thanks.
Yes, Devon embarks on his own journey and is hero, along with his sister, in the story. Both children must figure out how to fight for their freedom, while still trusting that God knows what is happening and has a plan for their lives.

Tell us a little about yourself. God called me to be a writer when I was 9 1/2.
I think of that when I look into the eyes of children and teens because I recognize their potential and want God's very best for them.
What was your motivation behind this project? Whenever I'm praying about a new project, and the entire time I'm developing it, I seek God for his leading. When I knew he was asking me to write about Vikings I wondered why. Then, as I researched, I learned that when Vikings came to raid they came in contact with Christianity. When enough of them became Christians, the raids stopped, and daring sailors such as Leif Erikson (a Christian) made world-changing discoveries. I also wondered how I could make this series a family story, and the Lord showed me how. In one way after another he helped me develop my characters into people I love. I'm glad that you love them too.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I want children and teens and all the adults who enjoy reading along with them to know one thing: If we ask God to help us in whatever we face he will give us the courage to win.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My husband, Roy, is an exceedingly strong influence in my life. A teacher and also a counselor for kids who have been through the courts, he cares deeply about the well-being and the success of those he has helped. Our children, their spouses, and our grandchildren are also great sources of fun and inspiration.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I like putting cliff-hangers at the end of every chapter because I want you to love reading. I'm glad that you do. Thank you for your letters and e-mails telling me how this series has helped you. As my husband and I pray for our children and grandchildren every day we also pray for you. Thanks for telling us that God has answered our prayers by helping you grow spiritually. Thank you for depending on him to give you courage in your daily life and the hard times you face.
