Product Description

Deep in the Norwegian fjords the Viking ship comes to shore. Mikkel, the prideful young leader, is home, but Briana O'Toole faces a new, uncertain life. What will happen to her and the other Irish prisoners?

Soon Bree feels sure that Mikkel is hiding a dark secret from his father. When Bree finds mysterious messages that seem meant for her, she longs to be what she is--the respected daughter of an Irish chieftain. But the cold winds of autumn sweep down the Aurland Fjord, and its people wait for the last ship out. Bree wonders, Can my brother Devin possibly bring ransom before winter?

In the midst of a growing threat, will Bree and Devin find God's courage to win? Who is their invisible friend? And what does it mean to be truly free?

Excerpts from a letter:

I love your new Viking Quest books!  Soon after my mom picked them up for me I finished Raiders from the Sea.  Loved it!  This story is a page turner and I like how original it was.  Bree is a lot like me.  I wish I could be her friend . . . Most of all, I appreciate the spiritual quality of your stories.  All your characters show what is right and wrong clearly.  Thanks for writing books for all us readers.  Please don't ever stop!  I can't wait for more Viking Quest books.
-all three quotes: Cambria, age 14, Minnesota

After reading Raiders from the Sea to her class:
Both the boys and the girls liked Raiders from the Sea. Four of the children bought their own copies so they wouldn't have to wait for me to finish reading . . . When we were on a field trip one of my boys saw the second novel in a gift shop. The children begged me to get it. We were so glad we did when we got to the end of the first book. As soon as the class finished reading Raiders from the Sea, they started Mystery of the Silver Coins.
