"This companion to Laybourne’s Berserker (2017) picks up three years after the events of the first book. The narrative bounces between Hanne Hemstad and her fiancé, Owen, who have joined a cattle drive (complete with satisfying descriptions of food prep, cowboy politics, and life on the trail) to make ends meet, and that of Hanne’s sister Sissel, who is coming into her independence as a young woman, as well as her unexpected Nyette (power). ...It turns out she’s a Ransacker―someone who can sense and pull metals from the environment, including gold. [Sissel] makes for a wonderfully flawed and complex heroine. A terrific follow-up to Berserker, full of adventure, magic, and deep family loyalty."--Booklist magazine
"Emmy Labourne 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 of the Dorothy Must Die series
"Startlingly original, unputdownable, and electrifying." ―Kass Morgan, author of the New York Times bestseller The 100
"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 Noel, New York Times-bestselling author of The Immortals series
"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
"Laybourne's strong characterizations of the resourceful, optimistic children who make up this improvised family intensify the horror of the situation and make the almost-cartoonish series of catastrophes frighteningly real." ―The New York Times Book Review
"...Laybourne's debut ably turns what could have been yet another postapocalyptic YA novel into a tense, claustrophobic, and fast-paced thriller." ―Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Monument 14 is raw, honest, gritty, and full of emotionally taut storytelling. I had to hug so many kittens after reading it that the pet store asked me not to come back." ―Lish McBride, author of Hold Me Closer, Necromancer
Monument 14:Sky on Fire:
"Laybourne excels at combining specific details of a world gone horribly wrong with intriguing characters." ―The Horn Book
“Simultaneously terrifying, hilarious, and action-packed, Sweet is a wild ride that holds up a warped mirror to our society. I loved it from the first line to the last.” ―Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of Legend and The Young Elites
“Laybourne's fictional world highlights themes of friendship, the culture of celebrity, and addiction...A finely knit narrative in which romance pairs perfectly (somehow) with societal horror.” ―Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NC, School Library Journal
“Laybourne's masterful novel opens as a comical potential romance, becomes suspenseful, then horrific, and ends as a gripping action-adventure survival story sure to enthrall readers ... The book is recommended as required summer reading.” ―VOYA, Starred Review
