Editorial Reviews

Review

"Berserker is a triumph, introducing a wholly-new breed of Viking superhero. It's a completely winning, romantic, and heart-wrenching historical fantasy. Your pulse will race from page one of this rich, rugged adventure of a book."―Alyson Noël, New York Times-bestselling author of The Immortals series

"Emmy Laybourne deftly melds Viking lore with the American West and creates something wholly new, a journey filled with heart-pounding suspense and surprising tenderness. Loved!"--Danielle Paige New York Times-bestselling author the Dorothy Must Die series

"Berserker combines the magic of Norse mythology with the thrill of the American West with staggering results. Startlingly original, unputdownable, and electrifying." --Kass Morgan, author of New York Times bestseller The 100

"Berserker embraces the beautiful brutality of both Viking lore and Frontier tales, and it does so without resorting to tired tropes or toxic masculinity. This is a brilliantly unexpected fusion of cowboys and old gods―intense and gritty and yet surprisingly tender―but the real strength of Emmy Laybourne's writing is that, for all their superhuman abilities, her characters are so very human."-- William Ritter, author of the New York Times-bestselling Jackaby series

"[Hanne's] internal struggle with her brutal nature as a berserker is intensely real and will resonate with readers who feel beset by forces outside of their control. A bloody and fast-paced genre mash-up."--Publishers Weekly


"Rich in description and compulsively readable."-- Booklist

"Laybourne has blended the fantasy of Norse gods with the American West with ease to create a coming-of-age story that is full of intrigue, adventure, budding romance, and self-discovery. ...The blend of historical fiction and mythology is well done and the teenage protagonists are wholly relatable. "--School Library Journal

From the Author

I'm so excited for my readers here on Amazon to discover my new book, Berserker. While Berserker has a very different setting from my previous books, Berserker and my Monument 14 series are full of breathless, visceral action sequences. 
In Berserker, I've invented a new aspect of Norse mythology. In the world of the book, there are ancient Viking superpowers, called the Nytte. 
The Nytte was a blood-gift given hundreds of years ago to three Viking kings by the god Odin -- the Kings would have children with one of several gifts designed to make unstoppable raiding parties. A child with the Nytte in his or her blood might be a Storm-Rend, able to create gales to speed the boats across the sea; or a Ransacker, gifted with the ability to find hidden gold; or be a Berserker, driven to kill to protect their kinsmen. 
I believe this is a book that will thrill fans of the Monument 14 trilogy, as well as earn me some new readers among those who love Kristin Cashore, Leigh Bardugo and Maggie Stiefvater.
