Jack was eleven when the berserkers loomed out of the fog and nabbed him. "It seems that things are stirring across the water," the Bard had warned.

Overall this was not a bad story. I do think it was long and drawn out beyond my tolerance. I don't think it would keep the attention of a child or young adult long enough to get to the good parts. The story line over all was interesting but I refer to it as "The book that would not end".

I love this book. It's well written, has a good plot and I finally found something that deals with Norse mythology! It is so hard to find a good read that deals with Norse mythology. It isn't too complicated, I can follow the story without twisting my head in knots, but you still have to think about the story. Once again, I say this is an awesome book.

This is a neat book! It takes us on a great adventure with a boy named Jack and his little sister Lucy. They battle with good and evil and the gray areas in between. FFarmer writes in an easy to read style and captivates her audience.
One recommendation I would have for the reader is to flip to the very back of the book and you will see a definition of terms and they way to pronouce words in the book...I wish I had read this part first. It would have made pronunciation better and a much smoother read. I love kids fantasy books and I am the grandma! So I read them first and then buy or recommend them to my two little grandsons. They think it is funny.
