Synopsis: A series of five books tells the story of a young Irish girl captured by Viking raiders and held captive for five years.
The five books in the Viking Quest series follow Bree as she is captured by Viking raiders led by Mikkel, and taken to Norway. Mikkel promises to free Bree from slavery if she and her brother Devin will take one trip with him. Will he ever give his heart to her God, and will he ever make his wrongs right? We recently read this entire series together. My boys loved the story, and begged for more and more (we read one book in three days!). The last book seemed to drag some, but was necessary to wrap up all the loose ends.
