Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Hanne and her siblings are different, and nobody can know. In a small town in Norway, their powers can be a blessing and a curse. Descended from Vikings, Hanne, her two brothers, and their father possess Nyttes, gifts bestowed by the Norse god Odin intended to lead the historic voyagers to success. While her father can create intricate ships and her brothers control the weather and exhibit incredible strength, Hanne's Nytte is much more troublesome. She is a Berserker and flies into a killing rage when her loved ones are threatened. After a terrible accident, the siblings, along with their frail younger sister, must flee Norway and travel through the American frontier, hoping that their uncle in Montana can teach Hanne to control her gift. The family meets a cowboy named Owen whom they hire as their guide through the increasingly cold autumn trails. The travel party must navigate the treacherous terrain without being recognized by either the Norwegian men or the local authorities who are on their tails. Even though its set during the American westward expansion, no mention of Native American tribes is made. 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 story is at times violent and bloody but, at others, is soft and touching. The blend of historical fiction and mythology is well done and the teenage protagonists are wholly relatable. VERDICT A strong purchase where fantasy and historical fiction are popular.—Erica Deb, Matawan Aberdeen Public Library, NJ

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
