Series: Viking Quest
This set contains all five books of the Viking Quest Series: Raiders From the Sea, Mystery of the Silver Coins, The Invisible Friend, Heart of Courage, and The Raider's Promise.
In Raiders From the Sea, Viking raiders capture Bree and her brother Devin and take them from their home in Ireland. After the young Viking prince Mikkel sets Devin free on the Irish coast far from home, Bree and Devin embark on separate journeys to courage. Readers will be captivated by the unfolding drama as Bree sails to Norway on the Viking ship and Devin travels the dangerous road home. They both must trust their all-powerful God in the midst of difficult situations.
In Mystery of the Silver Coins, Bree finds herself in a physical and spiritual battle for survival. With another young slave, she makes a daring escape from the ship as soon as it reaches harbor. They hide in the woods as Mikkel and his Viking sailors begin a relentless search, certain that Bree is responsible for a missing bag of silver coins. Bree must face her unwillingless to forgive the Vikings, and Mikkel begins to wonder: Is the God of these Irish Christians really more powerful than our own Viking gods?
In The Invisible Friend, Bree arrives in Norway and is sent to work as a slave for the family of Mikkel, her Viking captor. She struggles to adjust, feeling worthless and disrespected, and wondering why God wants her in Norway. Her prayers are answered when she is given the opportunity to teach Mikkel's grandparents to read using an illuminated Bible stolen from an Irish monastery.
In the Heart of Courage, Bree learns that her brother, Devin, her sister, Keely, and her friend, Lil, will set out for Ireland. She longs to go with them. Instead, Mikkel asks her to be a cook for voyage to Greenland. Somehow her excellent food becomes inedible and the Vikings think she's trying to sabotage their voyage. Join Bree and Devin for more adventures in this fourth installment of the Viking Quest series.
In The Raider's Promise, Bree, Devin, and Mikkel enter a new world with the explorer Leif Erikson. Their first task: build a shelter to survive the winter. But danger lurks from within the shadows on the horizon of a life where everyone needs the courage to win. Can Mikkel conquer his enemies and find new purpose for his life? Will he keep his promise to Bree and Devin to take them home to Ireland? Will he keep his pledge of honor, even if it means death?

Both my husband and I and our two sons (ages 11 & 12) have been so engrossed in reading these aloud as a family. They beg us to keep reading. The books are amazing at drawing you into the stories and you feel like you're really there. It got us interested in looking up more information about Ireland, Norway, Iceland, Greenland, the Viking Age, etc. We cannot recommend these highly enough!

My brothers think that this series is great!!! I especially like how naturally and authentically the faith of the characters is demonstrated in their lives. These are adventures that point to Jesus as the source of true courage (without being preachy). I highly recommend these books!

Through the five books, we watch the heroine grow and mature, shedding her animosity toward her main captor. She eventually learns forgiveness and submission to the will of God. These are quality books filled with excitement as well as wisdom. My 11-year old daughter loved them so much, I had to make her pace herself. Otherwise, she would have finished all five in as many days.
