Editorial Reviews

Review

Dane and his boon companions set off in their usual hilarious and quarrelsome manner to save the world. The plot and subplots are handled with masterly finesse: Action and suspense are nonstop. The resolution will satisfy. Fans will devour this excellent series finish.” (Kirkus Reviews)

PRAISE for RUNEWARRIORS: SWORD OF DOOM“Rip-roaring adventure. Dane’s quest for revenge and his romance with Astrid, Mistress of the Blade, provide a nice balance to the gross-out humor, and the resulting tale is at once funny and thrilling. An excellent next step for fans of Percy Jackson.” (The Horn Book)

“…a page-turner... lots of body humor and a rousing climax.” (Kirkus Reviews)

PRAISE FOR RUNEWARRIORS: SHIELD OF ODIN“The brisk pace and rollicking adventures should keep both boys and girls alike spellbound.” (KLIATT)

“A page-turner with definite appeal...boys especially will enjoy the pell-mell action, the wisenheimer narration and the belch-and-flatulence humor embedded in the adventurous tale.” (Kirkus Reviews)

"Runewarriors: Ship of the Dead" is the final chapter of the Runewarriors saga, and I believe it is the best of the bunch. Masterly combining equal parts heart, humor and action, the authors have produced a rousing page-turner.

Having read the trilogy, it's my opinion that it's not the authors' intention to write a strict depiction of Norse mythology that you'd read in textbooks. Rather, they take the gods, demi-gods and monsters of Norse lore and create living, breathing characters who are fresh, funny and modern in their complexities. For instance, Valkyries are usually depicted as self-sacrificing maidens who feel honored to ferry dead warriors to Odin's Valhalla. Not so here. The Valkyrie sisterhood of Runewarriors is humorously rife with enough back-stabbing and bitching to take up a whole season of "The Office." And the goddess Hel, ruler of the underworld, isn't exactly content that her father Odin stuck her with such a thankless job. Complaining about the endless tide of dead sent her way, she moans, "They never stop coming! Shipload after shipload. And I must find room for them all--as if we weren't cramped for space down here already!" There are dozens of these little gems of comedy amid the text. Some readers may take offense that their precious notions of Norse mythology have been deconstructed by the authors here. Well, these folks just don't get the joke--and never will. As for me, I thoroughly appreciate the fresh, exciting take on Viking times and culture delivered in the Runewarriors trilogy, and especially in the final chapter, "Ship Of The Dead."

The authors do not disappoint once again in the final book in the Rune Warriors series, "Ship of the Dead". The story has non-stop action and adventure, while weaving the "true love" story of Dane and Astrid. They left us hanging in the previous book - will they be able to be together after she is dead?!! The story is a serious one - what one has to do the save the world from an undead evil king and his band of undead warriors - but there is plenty of school-boy humor to lighten the mood and give you a good chuckle. Dane's band of motley cohorts are with him again, which we loved, along with some new characters, too. The scenes with Dettmarr the dwarf, his wife and the Fire giant are just great storytelling. Our daughter loved the Norse mythology, too.

Our whole family enjoyed all three books. We fought over who got to read them first! Highly recommend.

The whole viking theme really enhances this fantasy adventure of gods, Valkyries, undead, etc... It's a non-stop adventure! It's like the series Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the humor and everything, the only difference is that it's not in the modern day, but instead it's in the middle-ages (medieval), and instead of Greek Mythology, it's Scandinavian Mythology! (it's also got a little bit of romance) All around great series! A must read!

I bought the first book in the Rune Warriors trilogy for my grandson. He enjoyed it so much that I was encouraged to read it too. We anxiously awaited the publishing of the second book and then "Ship of the Dead".

All of the books are so full of good story telling and humor that they appeal to readers of all ages. We loved the hero's and villains escapades. As a school librarian I especially appreciate the authors wonderful use of colorful language.

At the end of this truly entertaining book we wanted more of Dane and Astrid and their friends.

I was expecting this to be some straight retelling of Viking legends. I was delighted and surprised that it was not! Sure, there's plenty of brave warriors, Valkyries, swordplay and hairbreadth escapes, but there's also lots of Terry Prachett style humor to go along with it. There aren't enough books like this! It was a very fun read. I will definitely pick up the first two books in the series.
