Category Description for Viking Quest Books:

Reading the first book, I could not help but think, "What an ideal time and place for a story!" It's set during the Viking times, in Ireland. This is an interesting combination, as the majority of Ireland at this time was Christian, while the Vikings believed in their own gods. The story line follows Briana O'Toole and her brother Devin. On the other side are, of course, the Vikings and their young leader Mikkel. The main character, though a girl, has enough "spunk" to make both boys and girls interested in this book. Briana is captured by the Vikings and dragged away from Ireland to a life of servanthood. The characters are fun, the writing is clear, and even though the whole "stranger in a strange place" plot is kind of clichéd, this one pulls it off as new. A good, clean Christian book for those who like historical fiction. ~ Mark

My 11 year old daughter loved these books! They had excitement as well as interesting characters. Also, there was a great focus on developing Biblical thinking in the face of hardships.

Our family read this series during our "read a loud" time My children ranged in age from 6 to 12 and we all enjoyed it very much It was inspiring to read about a character that served God in every circumstance and exhibited faith in challenging times It also gave a good picture of daily life in the Viking times
